  • Sense Think Act.

    Before you get behind the wheel of a car you cannot really learn to drive. Much key knowledge needs to be gained through experience. This book puts you behind the steering wheel of your own being. You can only gain intimate knowledge of basic human abilities by engaging with them. On an individual level we are, in a way, the sum of our abilities. These are usually modulated by cultural and educational norms. Sense Think Act, attempts to remove the filters and masks of tradition, and give us a glimpse of human life beyond inherited patterns of behaviour and regional concepts of education. This is not intended as an ideal, complete set. It is just a suggestion of a starting place for a discussion that stems from practice and experience rather than book knowledge.  Learn More
  • Compostion : Compositions of Compost

    A book of 17 photographs taken of my compost caddy whenever I found the contents interesting because of the colours or composition of elements or both. The photographs were taken with natural light from a skylight which gives a variation in the speed and aperture used. This information is recorded on the facing page with date of capture. The camera used was always a Sigma DP2 with Foveon sensor. Finding beauty in chaos and decomposition appealed to my anarchist and anti-art sensibility. Representing still life or flora at the peak of its perfection reeks of petrified ideologies. Decomposition suggests that the formal relations we hold dear are subject to a continual state of change. Matter readied for breakdown by benign organisms reminds me that the world is ‘on our side’. What is discarded can contribute to tomorrows new growth. Learn More
  • Chalet Fields of the Gower


    216 x 216mm 70pp standard colour hardback

    Short Description: 70 colour photographs of houses on two of the Chalet Fields of the Gower peninsular in South Wales. Over the last 60 years most of these simple, cheap-to-build houses have evolved into desirable residences. Looking beyond their aesthetic appeal they provide evidence that people can make and acquire their own homes given the opportunity. An interview with local architect Owen Short gives an insight into how these communities negotiated changes in the legal planning environment. These photographs show a form of self-provision of working class housing which begins with a simple timber-framed dwelling and develops gradually with the users changing needs and resources. In the process they have acquired an idiosyncratic style that gives them considerable charm. Looking beyond this aesthetic appeal they provide evidence of a method that could again be used to make dwellings. Photographed with a Sigma DP2 camera with Foveon sensor.
