Passing through a city my influences emerge from manufactured environments enveloping populated areas; these surroundings feel alien to me. I specialise in the glorification of what may be described as mundane pieces of urban complexities. Christianity and heavy alcohol consumption are not normally two subjects that are ordinarily associated. The Derby Street Pastor organisation nurtures what they name 'street drinkers'. Lending an ear or a shoulder to the city's nightlife, they guide and protect vulnerable people, akin to Guardian Angels, omnipresent and compassionate they follow the words of God. The series 'The Shepherds' illustrates the common spectacles of the street; recurring themes of distress, exhilaration, and hopelessness fuelled by alcohol, they are events viewed by the Street Pastors every single weekend.
