Having spent endless nights trying to create a working brief for myself I finally settled on an idea. Much of my personal photography is based around the detail within a landscape or in trying to portray something deeper, more engrained in time.
Raised in Ancoats I felt that this location was my starting point. Somewhat by chance I parked the van and found my photograph
Our parents give us life and show us life. Throughout my childhood and formative years i felt privileged with my upbringing. Born and raised in the beauty of the Peak District and Derbyshire Countryside my parents provided the encouragement and support to make decisions.
I have been taught it is important to be yourself, to remember your roots and feel your history. I have been shown that strength comes from within ourselves and that no obstacle is too great that it cannot be overcome.
