Exodus: Trafalgar Square, London by 


This from my exhibition Exodus.

The work represents the apocalyptic theme that is currently prevalent in our media which has been brought about by events such as an increase in the threat of terrorism and several outbreaks of pandemics in recent years. The apocalyptic theme has been portrayed in films such as I Am Legend and 28 Days Later which feature desolate landscapes within our most busy and famous cities. I have extended this concept to allow the viewer to enter a world in which they are unable to participate in. A world in which an incident has taken place which has resulted in a mass exodus of people and we are left to see the aftermath of this in our cities. These images are of the busiest areas in our cities and yet no one is around which conjures up many questions as to what may be happening.

More of these images can be found here: Exodus.

In 2008 I finished my BA in Photography at Nottingham Trent University, where I was able to experiment with new techniques and ideas.

Since leaving University I have had several exhibitions and commissioned work. Which has included covering several stories for The Times and also produced images for KPN which was used for a national advertising campaign.
