Research interests

My research interests lie within the history of landscape and street photography, specifically in the pictorial movement as an alternative strand of photographic history. Arguments for a pictorial/graphical form of photography were made at its very inception in the mid nineteenth century but became unfashionable as the idea of photographic realism grew. Artists for a long time considered the 'physicality of the print' secondary to the photographic content itself.

However, now in the digital age, new technologies and a longing to return to the craft of print making, has allowed for a new form of pictorialism to return, where display of the image is considered equal importance to the photographic content.  I am fascinated by how the photographic image can be accented, extenuated and made immersive by the way it is displayed (incidentally not just in print, but by all methods, even here on the internet).
