I am a photographic artist currently based in Brighton. My most recent work, A New Topography of the Durham Coalfield, is in part a means to document an industry, a community, and a way of life.  But it is also a very personal journey and an attempt to navigate my own identity in relation to these elements.

I am currently developing a body of work based around the concept of Edgelands, liminal spaces that are neither urban nor countryside. I am interested in them not only as borders or places of transition, but also as unconscious relics of human activity.
