What Happened Here is a hybrid art/photo-documentary project spanning multiple years and shot exclusively on a wide variety of expired analogue film stocks using 35mm and medium format analogue cameras.
This series takes a look at what transpires within an urban brownfield site once it is left derelict - the fly-tipping, decay, the return of nature and the human and animal interactions. This project centres on a single area of Frome, Somerset, UK, known locally as Saxonvale and captures the story of the site in the period before it was made secure and ready for development.
This is my most political project to date as it explores social impact issues such as land banking, homelessness and the environment. These galleries feature a selection of the less contentious images from the series, with the full project running to almost 100 images, 69 of which have just been published in a book of the same name. If you would like to order a copy of the book, please contact me here.
