‘Marks Made’ is a project that focuses on marks that have been made, both literally and metaphorically. In this project I explore the marks that represent, shape, mold and consume us. These marks include the impressions that are made on us by the people around us, the media, our environment, and even our personal faith and the truths in which we choose to believe. In this project I use a series of photographs to examine such marks that have been made.
Fine Artist and Illustrator and Aspiring Photographer My work is primarily about people and spaces, the way we interact within a given environment. My frequent visits to China and Hong Kong were firstly part of various Exchange programmes with the university; including a language and culture summer school programme. Last year I returned to China to teach English. I used all of these as an opportunity to engage and work extensively with my photographic practice to create a series of images that represent my response to these environments. All together the images are of Mainland China, Hong Kong, Poland and New York City. I have worked democratically photographing somewhere the wonderful and at other times the sublime. I would like to feel that this will give the viewer a deeper appreciation and insight into what they are seeing within the images; the countries and it’s people.
