This is where the project really stared to shape, looking at maps from the 1880's, I noticed locations that I know really well that revealed what used to be present there just over one hundred years ago. Using the maps I could see how the town has been designed, during the industrial era, with tones of furniture making factories and terrace housing to accommodate the factory workers, the housing which is still prevalent in the town. The maps also reveal way, way older histories and topographies that used to be present on the land, for example, the Rye park shows a roman villa and settlement that used to be there, dating back 2000 years, the new topographic that replaces this ancient location is a leisure facility, a swimming pool covering an intricate mosaic a piece of art. These simple facts of how the landscape has changed, been covered over and re-imagined fascinates me, how to read this change using maps and to evidence it using photographs seems like what i'm doing. Documenting... re-imagining in a way the history, the physical landscape and the social engagement with the land.
Wedding and bookings
I am available for Weddings, Festivals, Gigs, Band shoots, individual portrait shoots, family/ group shoots, videography, dance videos.
Being a Photojournalist I have been trained to work fast and accurately and along side the journalistic approach I am also capable of being able to create a project with you. The documentary side to my practice meas that I have the patients and the vision of helping create long terms based projects, such as books, exhibitions, public talks documentaries etc.
It is your ideas I am interested in. For a shoot if you have an idea, a vision, it is my aim to try and get as close as possible to what is in your head and bring it into reality. That way you are happy and we are all actively creating something new and meaningful.
Interested in creating something together? Unsure about something? Or simple want to ask me something photography related then give me a message, always motivated to listen.
