I have always been interested in people and the traces they leave behind. Towns , buildings and institutions remain when their inhabitants have left. Imbued in the brick and plaster is a sense of loss, the remains of life without the living, decay and survival hand in hand.

I live in London and make art concerning architecture and spaces around us. My latest work is a collaboration with photographer Keith Waterworth based on his visit to the ruins of Pripyat (Chernobyls ghost city).
