Review by Abi Mitchell


The subject matter is dealt with in a distant, un-voyeuristic manner, which is surprising given how we interpret news and consume imagery. Grey, misty skies and streets; all the photographs appear to have been taken on the same day, though actually taken years apart. This simple unifying factor gives an insight into the dedication and honesty in the artist’s work on the project, wanting each image to belong so they create strength and a place together.

Deserted streets and muted colours allow the photographs a sense of melancholy without creating a falsified version of this, it comes across with a natural awareness and brings real sentiment into the work.
