A Rose Without Thorns

Shot between 2016-2017, A Rose Without Thorns is the product of four years spent living in the North of England as a southerner whose entire family were either born and/or raised in the region. The series contains images from both the North and South across this period, and explores the feelings of alienation that ensue from being caught in the fault lines between two regions, never able to wholly identify with either in a country where the place you come from constitutes a considerable aspect of your identity.
