Artist Statement:

I am a photographer living and working out of stoke-on-trent, uk. My work investigates and documents those parts of urban life which often go unnoticed and are often wilfully ignored.

Whilst on the surface, a city appears to be the sum of its buildings, inhabitants, attractions and planning, there has to be a deeper explanation as to why each has its own unique feel. City life is full of transient experiences, actions and conversations which happen in an instant and disappear just as quickly. However, I believe they leave an imprint – a series of indelible imprints in terms of visible marks and ephemeral memories which collectively make up an urban identity.

This picture was taken in Prague in 2008.
