Debatable Lands Exhibition Opening

As part of my residency at VARC in Northumberland, I have spent the past couple of months walking the length of the Scotland/England border. This follows a desire to explore areas of contested land. Along the way I have been photographing the distinctive landscape and features and talking to and photographing individuals who live and work on both sides of the line. I am using photography and drawing to map and tell stories of people and their relationship with place, past and present.
