Traces of Existence
My current body of work looks at changes within my locality that encompasses industrial, natural and man-made aspects, linking into the canal network and Trans Pennine Trail. The area has also seen its popularity increase under lockdown as people search for the nearest open space. Focusing on the transitional nature of the space and how it is used, I use techniques such as multiple exposures to overlay both the static and interchanging aspects. To connect with the transitional nature of the subject, I am working with instant film. The instant film provides me with a physical memory and record of the place, providing results than cannot always be predicted and is one that remains fragile through its physical form.
