I am a Hampshire, UK, based photographer interested in memory, absence and presence and the notion of hauntological disruption. This interest was sparked by a walk through Creech Woods in Hampshire. I later came across the almost forgotten role that the woodland played in 1944 in sheltering hundreds of soldiers waiting embarkation for the Normandy D-Day landings. There is no trace today of what took place there. But the notion of landscapes layered with hidden histories gradually disappearing from our collective memory intrigues me.
My work explores these landscapes through the medium of photography, using archival material, photomontage and collage. I use form, colour, shape and line to create visual narratives evoking past events and experiences.
I am currently in my final year studying a BA (Hons) degree in Photography at the Open College of the Arts, Barnsley, England.
