July Open Studios
I am an artist and photographer based in Cambridge. I am primarily concerned with architectural and landscape photography, and particularly with the exploration of the forms and patterns inherent in these subjects. In 2014 I started to produce lino cuts along side my photographic work, having previously explored several printmaking techniques at Art College.
In my work I seek to uncover beauty and tranquillity in unlikely locations: many of my images are composed in such a way that they reveal and amplify the half-hidden abstract geometries I recognise within them. Similarly, when I photograph landscapes and seascapes, it is not simply for their own sake, but in order to explore the abstract patterns and textures they evoke. The human figure is usually absent from my work, although there is often a strong suggestion of its presence as a spectral memory.
I graduated with a BA in Fine Art and Graphic Design from London’s Camberwell College of Art in 1995, where I specialised in photography. In 2001 I completed a two-year course in professional photography.
