“Since first showing my work at the Joe Cornish Galleries in 2015 I have continued my dialogue with the river. Water has changed the way that I view my camera - rather than being a box that records the landscape, it is a tool that lends itself to creative interpretations. Including subject movement in my images reinvigorated my photography and gave me permission to experiment. I rarely make ‘static’ images these days – if my subject matter is not moving, I will move myself or use in camera multiple exposures to deconstruct the literal and reimagine the subjective.

Water is still the focus of my photography, but recently I’ve been finding new ways to photograph the trees along the river bank as much as the water itself. This has carried over into my exploration of woodland, and my interrogation of individual trees. These personal interpretations of wood and water, made over the past 3 years, reflect not only the seasons as experienced near my home in the Peak District or during trips to North Yorkshire, but the curiosity that water has inspired in my practice. Water has fundamentally changed my way of seeing, and I now look at the land with new eyes.”
