Kingdom
At a precarious historical moment for the UK, Kingdom takes a broad ranging look around the country.
For around 15 years I have travelled extensively throughout the UK photographing architecture. I have got to know areas of its urban & industrial landscape quite well and have always been drawn to scenes that give a sense of the country's deep weave. Scenes that capture the significance of homes, industry, infrastructure and landscape. The relationships that underpin and sustain a country.
Since the Scottish Independence referendum and continuing through Brexit, the constant talk of nationhood got me thinking more about these relationships. I started adding to some shots I had already taken and over the last couple of years have built up an expanding series of photographs.
The photographs look mostly beyond the spectacle and branding of city centres. Probing at the broader accumulated environment, its long industrial and urban history, its development and absorption of change, its social links and its common bind. From the Scottish referendum through Brexit, this wide ranging look around the country speaks of enduring and adapting relationships in deep contrast to the current flurry of national uncertainty.
