About the Book
Suburban London - the great unknown. It flashes past the train window as I ride into the city, utterly familiar yet exotic at the same time. All those streets stretching out as far as the eye can see, criss-crossing to make a web of secrets, undiscovered territory.
Poring over my trusty A-Z, I choose a page at random - page 59. One sunny, late Autumn morning I arrive at Harrow-on-the-Hill tube station and, feeling a little like an intrepid explorer, I set off on the first of my suburban journeys.....
Through my camera viewfinder I observe the daily and seasonal nuances which alter our domestic, rural and urban spaces. I usually prefer to take my inspiration from life as it unfolds, seeking to frame the mundane stuff of daily life in unexpected ways and creating fresh perspectives on the everyday. I have a particular interest in photographing the urban landscape, incorporating chance elements and exploring the nature of serendipity, coincidence and connections.The images are then combined into sequences in book form to emphasise the underlying relationships between the apparently random and haphazard, celebrating the accidental and the spontaneous. I am a recent graduate of the MA Photography course, de Montfort University, Leicester.
