The Submerged

My practice is concerned with the notion of encountering, collecting, and re-telling. I am interested in creating sociological landscapes, interplays of human form and location that are significant in their visual, sociological and psychological nuances.

The imagery in "The Submerged" was produced within Mid-Wales in a coastal and hilly area existing at the end of the railway line. I became intrigued by the way both structures and the human form interact with the urban and natural make-up of this environment. I was drawn towards a sense of grittiness and resolution within the geological and architectural fabric of the place, something so often mimicked in the light, colour, dramatic skies and the human performance within.
