I am a Madrid based photographer. My photographs are about urban and natural landscapes, influenced by narratives and the normality that surrounds us. My creativity is directed by an interest about space, probing its barriers in a pursuit for beauty.

I was born in 1984, in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
In 2007, I received a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Practice and in 2006 a Foundation Degree in Photographic Practice, both at Newcastle College, England.

Trans Mongolia

The legendary Trans Mongolian Railway journey is a thread connecting Beijing, Ulaanbaatar and Moscow. My series is a selection of images taken from my encounters in and around the cities and the train. Roaming through these barren landscapes and cities, I looked out from the inside, capturing moments in time but continuously feeling on the move. The train felt like a time capsule proceeding through the vein of three contrasting cultures. The window was a barrier for watching everything pass by, but when getting off the train, I reached out and wanted to capture the outside. The world on the train goes on at its own pace as it devours the railway miles. Time is irrelevant.
