Tidelands

In 2013 I returned to my childhood home on Morecambe Bay after living and working in the South of England. I knew that art and the landscape would play a huge part in my future but didn’t have a clear plan. I began to walk on The Bay with my camera as often as possible. This was a way of reconnecting myself with places I have known since childhood. Over the years my walks on The Bay have become an important part of my art practice and through them I have learned so much about my surroundings. In 2015 I self-published the work as a Blurb book, which is still available. Since then my experience and understanding has continued to evolve and I may publish or show the work as a whole at some point. I include a small selection of the photographs above: merely the tip of the iceberg!

Morecambe Bay is situated on the Lancashire and Cumbria coastline, just to the south of the Lake District National Park. Covering an area of 320 square kilometres, it is the largest area of intertidal mudflats and sand in the UK.
