Through the Eyes of the Nosey Neighbour


Nosiness: it happens to the best of us (and the worst, but we won’t go into that). The above photograph was taken during my second year at uni, whilst exploring the notion of ‘boundaries’. I particularly took to the idea of how people express themselves in their own space, ie. in a garden. This I then developed through looking at how the rest of the world is able to only catch a glimpse of what is contained in this personal space, which consequently evokes an increasing curiosity in the viewer.

A silly little project really.


Degree Show

This series of photographs and accompanying text serve as an overview of my third year studio practice, which was a piece based on the notions of journey and experience. Two different locations were used for each shoot: one being unknown and therefore a new ‘journey and experience’; the other a well-trodden route near to my home, a familiar journey. The result was a combination of images and text collating the familiar with the unfamiliar. Influences include journey-centered artist, Hamish Fulton, whom I was in fact fortunate enough to work with during the final year of my BA.
