Inspired by exploration, my arts practice documents experiences of journeys through a collection of written and visual details. An archival record of photographs, drawings, paintings, routes, itineraries, weather reports and kit lists are made for each cycle tour, walk, field trip, climb or expedition. New online work looks at a relationship of people and place through a growing archive of photography-led narratives, large-scale mapping works and sculptural interventions. The twin sites of Mappalogue and GuideToHere show details of field studies, reports, artworks, exhibitions, recent publications, commissions and residencies.
My research interests are photographic mapping and transformative cartography, and last year I moved back to the UK having spent two years making field studies in the Haute-Savoie, France. Previous to that, I made a series of discoveries and works during an eight-month stay in Catalunya, Spain. I am a member of the British Cartographic Society and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). I am currently engaged in an ambitious and over-arching independent research project The Moving Landscape: a physical and emotional geography of place.
