Abandoned Soviet Military Base | Tagaranna, Saare, Saaremaa, Estonia | 5 July 2017

A former Soviet military base lies abandoned on the Estonian island of Saaremaa. Evidence of Soviet occupancy can be found all over Estonia and its islands. Soon many of these places will be demolished. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to be able to wander through many of the buildings to document their existence before they eventually get torn down.

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.

Urban Spaces | 2012 | Film

A sequence of photographs taken on the streets of Birmingham city. Buildings look very different at night; uncovering a strange and altered world in contrast to the daytime. Public spaces like shopping centres, appartments, office blocks and streets are lit by the ethereal glow of street lighting radiating the ambience of the small hours.
