In between playing San Andreas and Arsenal away matches I find myself more and more looking through the lens of my camera.

My work is very autobiographical and is as much a document of my own life as it is my surroundings. The photographs you see presented here fall somewhere between documentary and travel photography and are the result of the last seven years of my life. They form part of either an on going project or a wider body of work.

Much of my recent work is inspired by daily life, girls fixing their make up on boring train journeys and the view from the window. Signs and industry and cityscapes and as I photograph them I find myself noticing things that had once been invisible to me....

Keep listening to Mogwai.
