What gives you inspiration?

Transitional spaces, those in-between spaces where architecture, landscape and the built environment intersect and where a dialogue –of absence rather than presence is created.

At present writers like Robert MacFarland, Richard Mayby and Ian Sinclair. Granta and Cabinet Magazine. Recent histories.

Why did you choose these photos? 

They are key signifiers of my larger photographic project ‘Edgelands’ and best represent the ethos of the project.

Photography is an itch that wont go away. No matter how much you scratch it.
