The Citadel | Victoria, Gozo | 30 August 2014

The Citadel in Gozo owes its roots to the late medieval era, but the hill has been settled since Neolithic times. After the Great Siege of 1565, the Knights set about re-fortifying it to provide refuge and defence against further attack. Until 1637, the Gozitan population was required by law to spend their nights within the Citadel for their own safety. In later, more peaceful times, this restriction was lifted and people settled below its walls, creating the prosperous town of Rabat, now known as Victoria.

Traces | 2012 | Digital

The city can be seen as a confusing place often perplexing new visitors with its unexplored street corners and unfamiliar features. ‘City Traces’ investigates this notion visually. Photographed within the city of Birmingham, these images could be of any street in any city where trees merge with street furniture, buildings appear to move into place like a puzzle and figures walk through passageways leaving traces of themselves behind.
