My work centres on human interaction with the landscape – the way that people shape the land and the land shapes people. This inevitably challenges the idea of pristine, ‘natural’ landscape and the rural myth.
Current project – Quarried
Living in a small rural community in the Peak District has caused me to question how the countryside is represented in terms of modern photography and popular culture. I am interested in how a particular and incomplete ‘image’ of the English landscape is used to sell and promote rural life and visits to the countryside particulalry national parks.
