'Land with opportunity'; Monks Cross Project.
My work is inspired by the urban and edgeland areas of York, close to where I live.
I am fascinated by the way we process, view, experience and analyse the landscape, especially when different environments intersect.
My project since early spring 2013 has been about local farmland being developed into a shopping centre.
I have been exploring, observing and recording the evolution of the area from open fields to construction site and on to the 'soon to be' completed shops,
As the project progressed I was generously granted access onto the site by Caddick Construction and developers Bowmer & Kirkland to document the evolution of the external landscape and internal landscape of the John Lewis Store.
Since completion of the store in April 2014 I have been producing a series of pictures about the site, showing the many stages involved. From change of land use to construction, materials and ideology.
