"One of my first memories of the wood was on a family walk. 

At one point while playing with my sister I decided to run ahead. 

I came into a clearing and then quickly slowed down and stopped as I approached an entrance. 

Despite the daylight it was dark at the edge of the clearing where the path continued into the wood. 

Fear gripped me for a moment with a vivid thought.

Then we all continued in .”

"The term liminality stems from Latin limen meaning boundary or threshold. Concepts of boundaries exist in all aspects of humanity and have been the study of many ethnologists, folklorists and philosophers. In particular, Plato considered the boundary between a reality and a heightened reality or altered state of mind. 

My practice involves extensive observation and explorative research of a landscape, built environment or interior space. The work examines past experiences and memories in the context of a new, technologically developing and globally linked society and the psychological effects that permeate. The experience is solitary, raw and elemental and reaches deep into the psyche.

Penn Wood is a 500 acre area of woodland bordering the village where I spent most of my childhood. It is an ancient wood with mixtures of evergreen and deciduous trees, open planes and dense foliage. It also contains over a dozen trees that are uncommon in the county.” Read More

I shot some pieces for the Observations section in the latest issue of Disegno (No. 7). One of them was a new Balenciaga winter coat, for which I had two very distinct ideas. In the end I shot both ideas as I would be happy with either when published. This shot here ended up being the outtake, it was a tough decision for the editorial team as they loved both options! I’ve been playing around with optical distortions/illusions in the studio and applied this when thinking about the shape of the carbon fibre detail on the coat’s shoulders. Go and check the latest issue now to see the chosen option and also my shoot of Gio Ponti’s classic 1966 Fato lamp for Artemide. Images will also be up on my website soon.
