I am a UK photographer currently based in Moscow. I enjoy exploring urban environments that are new and unfamiliar to me, attempting to understand something of the city and what makes it unique. With the camera I am forced to look harder, and clues emerge in the landscape as to the essential nature of the place. In this observing, I fix my role within the environment also. I too am passing through, blending with the brick, concrete, other inhabitants. I like to imagine cities growing over the months and decades, changing slowly, layers building up. We take our landscapes for granted- they are our homes- but we have built them from the ground up. In my work I wish to reveal something of how we use these urban spaces and what that says about the lives we lead.
