I’m a photographic artist working in the southwest of England. I studied geological sciences at university and I have a PhD in palaeoclimatology. My background means that my approach to contemporary photography is very experimental.
I frequently employ alternative photographic techniques within my work, many of which combine meticulous planning with an element of chance in order to create complex and imaginative imagery. I like to use natural materials and processes wherever possible and I prefer to ‘make’ rather than to ‘take’ images.
Much of my work deals with the landscape and nature but with an emphasis on how humans interact with the natural environment. The uneasy balance between culture and nature is a recurring theme within my work.
