To the side of the ‘city park’ – Bradford’s redemption – is the pre-existing courts complex and police station. The latter emptied to make way for redevelopment and improve the lots of the copper, the latter showing it’s age. This zine looks at the interaction between the buildings, the controlled natural elements and some ofContinue reading “H.M. Coroners Post”
Back in December I issued an event call on social media to get photographers out taking new imagery once the immediate excitement of the festive period was over. And so, in Leeds a bunch of a dozen trepid photographers set out into not the best of days to capture the post-Xmas feeling. In addition toContinue reading “Twas the day after Xmas…”
The finality of death – looking at ageing and fragility from a different angle. Shadows cast on memorial stones in a local graveyard balanced with images of a former home for the elderly – captured after it’s closure and a significant fire. Itself teetering on permanent demise.

I thought it was worth publishing here instead… There was a time, not so long ago, when I had no knowledge of ‘Louisville’ – sure I’d heard of the Kentucky Derby, KFC is a household name across theContinue reading “A long distance Louisville love affair”
I’ve been a busy old bee lately (so busy this post is being written long after it was due and back dated – sorry if this confuses!) But I thought it would be good to flag up my recent visit to East Lothian, Scotland to again take part in the 3 Harbours Arts Festival. AsContinue reading “Back from my third trip to the 3 Harbours”
A friend whose photography has inspired me for years recently acquired a copy of 24 hours on the coast – and left a wonder ful comment for me…
When walking we’re usually looking ahead to the ground; but how much do we really see? After a large rainstorm I wandered my local city. My focus was on the world around our feet; the beauty, geometry and fantastical world of the ankle. Follow my soles in a journey across ground-level Leeds. This photobook isContinue reading “Down at heel (watch your step)”
