I dreamt of afternoons in the forest.
Using the vernacular and archival photography to create a variety of research led projects, my work investigates identity, belonging, narrative and the self. To question these themes further I am now turning my focus to the unwanted and discarded objects in Plymouth. These materials within the urban landscape have by chance come together to form surreal sculptural constructions. With only the natural available light, I capture the location untouched. Other times I subtly rearrange the items in the found environment to explore new ways of looking at the familiar in an unfamiliar place and construct temporary interventions in the city. This series titled I dreamt of afternoons in the forest. is of an uprooted redundant tree in a cemetery, adding further ideas of temporality and mortality to the work. I first photographed this site in October last year and since then I often return to take more photographs.
