My photographic practice engages with memory and shared histories of places and events. I’m interested in how places, artefacts and images feed into collective memory. My work is usually inspired by a specific place or around a collection whether personal, local or national. I look for common themes and threads within the collections that I can then explore with reference to the present day. My work also reflects the every day. I photograph the world I see around me that others often ignore as being mundane or uninteresting; the little details that actually make up our world. It is often these that give us the sense of place and prompt our memory.
