Tate Library's Artists' Book Collection (2013)
The book is based on a three day walk from Camberwell to the Devil's Dyke. Trapped in London by the cold weather and lack of money, I saw my walk as a journey through a "landscape of necessity." The sprawling suburban landscape of my route down the A23 represented the mundane and necessary things you have to do in life, such as going to work or putting the laundry on. The challenge for me was to capture "fleeting transient moments of beauty" within this landscape. This is the key idea that I want to bring into my art: to use it as a vehicle to navigate my way through the world in pursuit of optimism.
