urban landscapes

Metropoli Project
At the beginning of 2000 I started an ambitious project to investigate and photograph Britain's major post-industrial cities.
My aim has been to document the multi-layered character of metropolitan areas and to produce a coherent series of images which reflect the positive achievements and realities within our continually changing urban space. I have tried to remain objective in this documentary work but a theme that has became increasingly important is to question as well as celebrate our collective responsibility in shaping the environments in which we live.
