A Structure Of Feeling
...is an ongoing analogue photographic series touching on the coronavirus and mental health. The project began during lockdown and is continuing through the easing of restrictions.
The work is an alternative approach to exploring the psychological impact of the pandemic, our conceptions of place and our inner landscapes. The photographs are allegorical and present a story that is happening ‘off camera’, instead taking place in our communities and in our minds.
All photographs are made in my home borough of Newham and my home town of Hull, both places have changed significantly over the last few years and the redevelopment of East London continues apace. I’m interested in whether these urban spaces ground us during times of such flux and if nature offers a route to some kind of refuge or is now perceived as a threat.
The images are quiet and reflective, seeking to articulate our shared experiences of anxiety, connection and hope for the future.
