ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Since 2006 I have been photographing in and around Hebden Bridge recording and processing my experience of the place. Having grown up in this small drug town with a tourist problem surrounded by the beautiful drama of the Yorkshire landscape I often feel like it is part of me. Inspired by the theory of 'Valley bottom fever', local folklore and the childhood tales of my father and his siblings, this collection of photographs attempts to represent some of the confusing, uncanny, fleeting beauty of growing up. The photographs were all taken over the last 12 years in locations inspired by these stories in an aim to show the link between the land and the people in the rural north, the power, the grit and the strange beauty they both share.

BIOGRAPHY

 

Growing up surrounded by the desolate beauty of the Yorkshire landscape I developed my work to explore the romanticised nostalgia and uncanny brutality landscapes can evoke. ​ My photography explores photographic language and process, often referencing nostalgia towards photographic practice itself. Experimental processes and innovative mixed media are integral to my work often produce eerie visual effects. ​ Now working within arts education as co-founder of Capturing the Chimera running photography and creative workshops for all ages. Also a collaborative member of Miniclick Photography Talks, I aim to widen participation within the arts whilst further exploring my photographic practice. I have also worked with a number of international photography festivals and organisations to bring their participatory events and exhibitions to new audiences, including Brighton Photo Biennial and Fringe, FORMAT (Derby), Redeye, LensThink and Hebden Bridge Arts Festival.
