My work revolves around our experience of place, how we both navigate and construct spaces physically and psychologically.
I wish to explore the connections and effects that places have on us through our memory, fantasy and histories. I am interested in the way we subjectively respond to imagery and how we construct our own narratives based on past experiences.
I predominantly photograph transitory spaces and locations where people can be transported, absorbed or lose oneself. My aim is to open possible narratives and draw out the imaginative potential of sites.
