Statement

"My affection for greater Manchester is born out of the landscape, and the people who inhabit it. The part of Bolton that I grew up in has a strong industrial past - this synergy has thus far, been a recurring theme throughout my work. In my projects I have often focussed on contemporary issues, but with a considered reference to the past, realising that that which we do now, becomes our future past - as each second passes.

I take pictures to gain a deeper understanding of the world around me. The camera gains me access to places that mere curiosity will not normally allow."
