Crosby Stills And Nash


This is a series of work that took on a Canon Demi film Camera. It’s a half frame camera so from 36 images you get 72. It was a rather considered piece in that sense. It was a total conceptual idea based around the object we all recognise. The Anthony Gormley‘s statues at Crosby. I really wanted to do something different with them

This was the only Stills we were given of Mr Nash when he sent to reform in Crosby

the sun was setting on his past time to think of his past was his only why out…he said he felt at ease that we had taken the time to visit. he requested some candid shots…He asked for a picture of my feet as the induced sinking created a loss of feeling. He longed to leave a foot print in the sand…The space to think was helping him retreat from his actions…His out look was bleak but focusing on the distant seascape made clear about the future ahead…

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.
