Artist Statement

“I grew up in The Fens, on the outskirts of a small village in Lincolnshire. My family home was flanked on three sides by large open fields that grew corn in the summer and root vegetables in the winter. In the summer the landscape was full of life and colour, in the winter it was bleak, grey and brown. Throughout the year the horizon remained distant beneath an expanse of sky, reminiscent of a Dutch landscape painting. This openness has influenced how I photograph, it’s helped me to stand back and recognise the role of space in my pictures.”
