I live in the city of Salford, just across the Irwell from Manchester, and I’ve lived in this area for most of my life. Currently my personal work often explores themes of transition, frequently within the urban environment.
This interest caused me to begin my Not Quite Light project, which examines themes of heritage and regeneration at dawn and dusk.
Several commissions have arisen due to this work, archiving the construction of new developments. It also led to a major collaboration with 5 Plus Architects called “You Live With Us, We Live With You”, which resulted in a limited edition book.
My work has been published nationally and internationally, and I’ve exhibited in the UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong and China.
