My documentary photography aims to highlight people and places that are often unheard of or overlooked, exploring how ambiguity within images can be used to draw attention to environmental or social issues, with locations and people, attempting to show the extraordinary within the ordinary, where places seem unfamiliar, yet somehow recognisable.
