Since graduating from West Surrey College of Art and Design in 1988, I have worked as a documentary photographer undertaking personal projects and editorial photography as well as a wide range of commissions and residencies nationally and internationally. My work has been published widely including the Guardian Weekend, The Financial Times Magazine, foto8, Geographical, National Geographic, The Sunday Times Magazine, Private Photo Review, Daylight, HotShoe and the British Journal of Photography. As a photographer, I have a particular interest in different landscapes and the way they are shaped by human activity. My work aims to draw attention to observing details which we usually let slip by unnoticed and aims to contribute to the ongoing debate about the changing nature of rural life.
