Artist's Statement

From rapidly melting glaciers in southern Chile and Argentina, unprecedented storms in the Atacama Desert, deforestation in Brazil to the accelerating coastal erosion in the UK, I am increasingly seeing ecological disasters unfold. I have an avid interest in highlighting the effects of both local and national governments' neglect of our environments and their disregard for the people who are directly affected. I am forever questioning why authorities fail to undertake and deliver on promises and my research exposes the hypocrisy of those faceless organisations who promise much but have little or no intention to deliver. I am primarily interested in highlighting how our environments are being destroyed by deliberate neglect. What is apparent is that pressure in every form must be brought on those in authority to act and the photographic image is a powerful format.

My Current Focus

Having highlighted the dramatic coastal erosion affecting the residents of Happisburgh in Norfolk, I am now concentrating my attention to the environmental damage that privatised water companies are doing by regular spewing of raw sewage into our rivers and seas with little punishment. They are all allowed to self-regulate which is the equivalent of a burglar setting his/her own punishment

A 3 year study of the dramatic erosion of this Norfolk village and its affect on the residents culminating in a two week exhibition in Norwich in January 2022.

A misleading 10 Year Plan

A local authority has only one real interest which is focused almost entirely on the airport. All other projects included in the town council's 10-year plan do not stand up to scrutiny and are all invariably "subject to planning agreement" or nothing like the authority claims in its propaganda. Meanwhile the neglect of the town is there to be seen.

The truth about Italian medieval mountain villages.

Picturesque views of Italian mountain villages belie the reality of their gradual demise as limited work opportunities lead to the exodus of the young. As the older inhabitants die, so do the villages.

Secrecy surrounding Mid Bedfordshire's landfill sites.

Once, the London Brick Company, it was the world's biggest provider of household building bricks. The industry has now gone but the polluted sites have been left. Whilst the larger clay pits were used for landfill (now ceased) and one is a water sports centre, many smaller ones have been abandoned. Who takes responsibility for making good?
