Whenever I pass though Preston Bus station, I pass this spot! Recently when trawling through my archive I had noticed that I had several photos taken from a similar point of view, initially this was not a conscious decision. On discovering I’d been making a series of similar images I decided to continue this is a photography project. Continuing to position myself in the same spot, observing how this space is used, as the series progress I hope to see more accuracy on my framing the ability to balance the ever changing light as I approach the corner before I see who’s sat or stood in the space. A waiting space, a space to ponder scroll on phones or just have a rest with the shopping, watch this space to watch the project develop…

For the last 5 years,  I’ve been working on a photography project; Most of the project has been focused around a small family run pub in the Northwest of England; The Moorbrook, there are other pubs included, but decided the project would work better if  I immersed myself in one place, became part of the furniture, got to know the regulars on a personal level, got to know every nook & cranny, there’s been good beer, music, fun, frolics and even politics, here’s some a sneak peek of some of the images that I’ve made

Sometimes when we visit a gallery or pick up a book it’s clear what the artist is communicating to us, other times the artist leaves no clear clues just leaves you… thinking! but what does it all mean? sometimes you get it, sometimes you don’t! Even the art I don’t get, I appreciate! (eventually) even if  I’m left thinking… “what’s the point” or “I could have done that” the controversial stuff I love the conversation/debate it creates,  but sometimes its the simplicity of what the art is communicating to me that connects me to the idea, the environment the artist!

without going into any details here is some of my recent photography, does it say anything to you? do you get anything from it? does it challenge you? what’s in it for you?I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you got or didn’t get from the work
