These photographs belong to the Weather Works, all developed in the Lake District, in response to climate change.
They are photographs of the never-hatched eggs of the last golden eagle resident in England. The eggs, now held in the collections of Tullie House, bear testimony to his failed attempts to procreate.
The bird moved to the Lake District to mate with his female partner. Since her passing he continued to build nests of ever increasing size and to perform the eagle’s sky dance in failed attempts to attract a new mate. The eagle himself passed away in 2018.
Magnified on a scale of 1 to 300 the eggs begin to resemble planets, each bearing distinct characteristics different from the others.
LA book project consisted of a series of photographic diptychs that highlight the difference between a city and its image. Each double page presents a contradiction such as for example the actual skyline of the city and its painted, fictional duplicate; the rooftop Jacuzzi party next to the film shoot of CIS New York, being shot in Los Angeles. The double images echoes Rorschach prints, where one side is not quite the perfect reproduction of its opposite.
The Antipode series consists of a series of photographic diptychs always juxtaposing two exactly opposite points of the globe in a single image. The work was shot in a three-week period, traveling from Spain, to Peru, from Peru to Hawaii, to New Zealand, to Thailand and finally to Botswana, covering the stretches of the globe. The series visually collapses geographical space to present a world inextricably connected.

Urban Myths juxtaposes those American cities that have seemingly grown overnight out of unlikely and often inhospitable environments that can not support them, from the swamps of Miami, to the dry desert of the America West. These images capture how the cities bleed out into their surroundings; be it through the radiating glow of the urban night lighting up the desert or the trails of cars or planes attracted to the urban centres like moths to the light.
