This series of work has been made during the excavation process at a number of local archaeological sites. The photographs, like the surface itself, reveal fragments and markings of our occupation through different millennia. Overtime they become embedded and hidden. Through the processes of technology and experience, archaeologists slowly reveal layers and shapes which mark and echo past presence, activity and occupation, the traces left behind by those who once lived and worked there. To the untutored eye they resemble abstract markings and shapes with and upon the landscape which offer a faint indication of their purpose and meaning. Like photography itself, things are revealed only to conceal themselves at the same time.
