I dreamt of afternoons in the forest.
This body of work arises from my MFA in Photographic Arts at Plymouth University. It is still work in progress and a move away from my normal practice. I am now turning my focus to the discarded and overlooked objects in my hometown, 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.
It is an on-going series is of an uprooted redundant tree I discovered on one of my walks in the local cemetery, adding further ideas of temporality and mortality. I photographed this site in October 2017 and since then I often revisit to take more photographs.
