My interests are in fine art/social documentary photography, especially photographic depictions of the urban environment, and its relationships with the people who live in it.

DSCF5144aWorking with both 35mm film and digital photography, my aim is to use the medium of photography to document and explore the world around me. Hailing from the North of England, I’m particularly interested in depictions of life in the that part of the world, although I have several other projects to which I am committed.

I was born in 1978 and have a BA(Hons) in English/Social Science and a Masters degree (with distinction) in Contemporary Literature and Film. Aside from the photographic work on display here, I teach aspects of visual culture (film studies and photographic history/theory) and cultural studies generally, and also work as a freelance writer.

I hope you enjoy these images or find some element within them that interests/intrigues/fascinates you 🙂
