Pinhole Impressions was an experiment with a pinhole camera in 2007. Two sets of images were created. The Beach Series, from Andalucia, in Spain. And a portfolio of monochrome images taken at RHS Wisley, which was exhibited at Kew in 2008 as part of The Garden Photographer of the Year competition.
Exhibited at the Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition at Kew in 2009, this series captured portraits of well know gardeners and tv presenters through their hands.
The title, “Welcome to Heaven’ is taken from graffiti found at the top of one of the derelict tower blocks, in what was the Urban Forest at Elephant and Castle. It is an archive of various features between 2010-2015, documenting guerrilla gardeners, volunteer groups, charities and individual gardeners in their own unique spaces.
Started in 2004, an on-going series of observations from Andalucia or The Coast of Light, Spain.
From the Oxford English Dictionary; “Wilding or Wildling….a plant sown by natural agency”. A series of plants growing in unexpected urban locations which was exhibited at Oxford House in 2013 as a group project, with presenter and writer, Alys Fowler and artist, Lynn Keddie.
An on-going project with observations from the River Thames. This will form part of a series of images, alongside artists Liz Charsley-Jory and Caroline Underwood with the aim of exhibition in late 2017 or early 2018.
A series of photographs started in 2009, taken along the footpaths and walks which coincide with the River Brent. The Capital Ring, Dollis Valley Greenwalk and towpaths alongside sections of the Grand Union Canal. These are green corridors, leading through urban or industrial areas in the suburbs, which few people use or are aware of. The River Brent is a little known river in London, which rises at Moat Mount Open space in Barnet. About 29km in length, it starts as Dollis Brook, becoming the Brent at its’ confluence with Mutton Brook, near Brent Cross Shopping Centre.
