After Christmas I walked the streets near where I live redecorating and photographing old Christmas Trees put out on the kerbside for recycling. By giving the trees a chance at a second (if temporary) life I hope that the photographs capture a spirit of renewal.
When I am not photographing I am cycling and when I am not cycling I am sometimes photographing other cyclists, capturing that freedom of movement.
As a cyclist roads have always fascinated me and I have loved the idea of riding as far as possible that I run out of the road. In 2019 I cycled from London to the edge of the land on the Essex coast.
On my cycle rides I often visit village churches and one of the things I seek out are the quiet corners of the churchyard where the watering cans and the compost heap are situated; a reminder of the simple practicalities of remembering.
I have been taking photographs for many years back to the pre-digital age. Recently I came upon several old 35mm slides from the 1980s. I have repurposed them to create this series of photographs.
The seaside town of Weymouth in Dorset has an almost unique feature; an actual railway line running down the middle of the road. It’s no longer in use now and went and photographed what was left.
The Dorset coastline is 88 miles long. In the summer of 2018 I cycled its length, heading down tracks to explore its more remote beaches and cliff tops.
