Born in Liverpool (UK). Studied documentary photography at art school in South Wales (UK). Now working as a fine art specialist in London (UK).
I began shooting 'Close Phase' in 2013, the year I moved to London. This was also the year that the London Underground celebrated its 150th anniversary. I wanted to pay homage to the photographic techniques used in 1863, the year the Underground was first opened. The Tintype would have been widely used during this period. In an attempt to replicate this process I chose to shoot using a smartphone with the 'Hipstamatic' App. The combination of 'D-type plate' film and 'Tinto' lens provides an accurate, digital, copy of the historic, metal plate film.
