My practice explores the British landscape. I respond to landscape’s effect on cultural and political beliefs. By using analogue photography, I question the role of images in the surrogacy of physical experience in a digital age. The majority of images that we encounter are virtual, whereas the images that I create through analogue processes are tangible. My intention is to use the lyrical anomalies inherent with analogue photography to add a sculptural aesthetic to my work. Embedding my images with a record of time and process, they reflect the shifting landscape against changing human activity in Britain.
