MA work

Questioning the way we deal with ownership of space and boundaries, I enquire into the familiar and the extraordinary. Based on individual experiences, the transcendence of everyday life in moments of heightened perception, I question the way we experience the English landscape. Place, time and memory feature within my work while highlighting political, social and class issues within suburban England. The ubiquitous nature of photography is interrogated through sculptural acts in and with the landscape.
