Voyage of Enterprise - 50 years of the Shrewsbury Market Hall

In September/October 2015, VAN put on an exhibition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Market Hall. I led on curating the exhibition which featured commissioned art works, and displays on architecture, history, original design drawings, photographs and archive material telling the story of the traders and people involved in the market, past and present. Further details here.

Some of my photographs of the Market Hall from a series entitled "Quotidian" were featured in a digital display. Further details can be seen here.

Land in Hand - The Making of Coton Hill Allotments

This exhibition featured my work and that of fellow photographer and artist, Mairi Turner. We were commissioned by the Visual Art Network (VAN) to document a project by the Coton Community Allotments Association to develop new allotments at Corporation Lane in Shrewsbury.

As part of the exhibition Mairi and I co-authored and published a book - preview here.

"We're not out of the woods yet"

In April 2013, I published a limited edition artist book entitled "We're not out of the woods yet". The book is a collaboration with Colin Blundell who contributed haiku poetry. The book features images of trees "on the edge" in and around Shrewsbury and Sheffield.
