I once remember seeing a crash on the M40. After sitting in the jam we got to the event. On spine boards where the two people who had been tragically involved in the car crash. Instantly for the few seconds that caught my gaze there was instant peace. I was not quick enough  capture what i had seen on camera due to drive ing. In all the mayhem i could feel a strange sense of tranquility.

THis maybe is what i read from it. obviously introduce a body or being to the shot it totally changes the demographic totally

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
