I am fascinated by incongruities in the sites along The Leeds & Liverpool Canal, with human culture working at the landscape, marking possession, use and abuse. The main work is presented as a narrated stills-film, which can be found through my video page.
Music is an important part of my life, whether through my own enjoyment as a mediocre guitarist or listening to those far more accomplished.

Foodbank is a series of photographs representing the reality of the UK's increasingly divided society. They reflect a wish to make images that act as metaphors for a damaged society. Skipton Foodbank is operated by Skipton Methodists.
Stories from the woods examines human relationships to an ancient woodland. How nature is loved in a strained relationship, in which woodlands are disappearing at an alarming rate. Strangers were photographed using a portable strobe to emphasise the distance between humankind and nature. Personal stories of connections were collected and the work made into a short photo book.
