Our lives are the sum of millions of moments colliding to make up the past, present and the future. But what traces do these moments leave behind and how do they impact the people we are?

About Cornish roads (hedges), in Flow

Set in the southern tip of Cornwall, this series explores colour, time, movement and the relationship between the artist and the land. This timed projection emphasises the transient nature of the moment in which the photographs were made, and restores a sense of the movement inherent in the subject and process.

To see more from this series take a look at my website.

Ophelia 4

Ophelia #4

This image is part of a series that explores the story of Shakespeare’s Ophelia, made in response to studying previous artistic interpretations of the text. Combining underwater digital photography with alternative printing methods, this series studies the destruction and turmoil that lies beneath the romanticism and serenity suggested in traditional representations of her fate, both in image and process.

After creating these underwater photographs I repeatedly printed and re-photographed them using lo-fi techniques to simultaneously intensify and degrade the images. Whilst the title image is a composite of two photographs, the remainder are all single full frame images. In the final stage I used out-of-date Polaroid film to make water-based emulsion lifts onto textured watercolour paper; the destructive yet delicate nature of the process continuing the themes of the subject matter.

Shutter Hub provides opportunities, support, and networking for creative photographers worldwide

Do You Like Love? is showing as part of the Photomonth East London Photography Festival.
