With the promise of the new, the heart seeks the familiar within the foreign.

Threading together the research and my own visual language always begins with wandering. Wandering everyday with my camera to start familiarising myself with a sense of place, using slow looking to see things you may normally walk past. There is something very special about seeing a place for the first time, you’re drawn to everything and anything and within this unfamiliar landscape I found my eye was drawn to things so unfamiliar they were comforting somehow.
