This ongoing body of work started in 2008 when I decided through practice that I wanted to take a step back - literally - from the sort of street photography that I was used to seeing. I decided to move away from close up candid street photography and into something a lot of people would simply refer to as minimalism.
I am interested in the ways that space is divided up into sections and how cities grow from this. Because of this, I choose to focus on one space inside a city for each photograph. Each of these spaces is a transitional area between others. Movement from people is what is required to give these spaces meaning. The people in the photographs represent the everyday, using the space purely for function. The minimal aesthetic disregards locational context - we cannot place these photographs with our prior knowledge. Fitting architecture into this is a fascinating problem that I have started to address recently - I set out to include notable buildings, but I try to photograph them in a way that obscures their original function.
