I am a London-based photographer with an interest in social documentary. I search for specific environments with suggestive qualities and possible anthropomorphic characteristics in landscapes that echo feelings of isolation and loneliness.
My series, Islands explores the lives of individuals who live in isolated communities surrounded by vast, barren lands, in small, tight-knit villages in the north of Britain, such as the Isle of Arran and Rathlin Island. I traveled there over the course of last year, in search of pictures that would convey the deep-rooted romanticism present in the picturesque British landscape that is both open and vast. I focus on the people and their sense of identity, both through the lens of the place they inhabit and their surrounding landscape, and explore why they have chosen to distance themselves from urban society and popular culture.
