"The littoral zone, the area that lies between land and sea, is a dynamic, shifting space. I have long been fascinated by its transient beauty. My home, at the tip of the Wirral peninsula in North West England, is a stone’s throw from the beach. A mile out from land, as the sea ebbs and flows on the neap tides, temporary sandbanks are formed. Encircled by seawater, these sandbars, normally submerged during higher tides, briefly become my own private islands. This collection is part of a larger series of works started in 2017 and created using a process which has offered me a more direct, physical way of engaging with the littoral landscape. Working out on the sandbanks, light sensitive materials are exposed to the elements. Waves and wind, sunlight and sand all leave their imprint; the tiniest of details permanently etched upon the papers. Each print is the result of a unique set of conditions at one particular moment in time – a fleeting representation of an ever-changing landscape."
