My work results from a curiosity about landscape change, with the way that forms and places can be both lost over time but are also continuous, shifting and changing. These images of Pink-footed geese on their crepuscular roost flights are one part of a larger body of inter-relating work based around these themes. What is emphasised in these pictures is that the structure, and hence the identity of a thing remains fixed, despite, or even because its substance is constantly changing. The pattern of the geese shifts, but the containing structure of the skein remains. If this parallel is pressed, something similar can be indicated about the structure and identity of landforms, where a unitary form is maintained while its material embodiment or 'filling' constantly changes.
