Born and raised in Scotland but now living in Milan, I peddle lo-fi social commentary laced with hi-fi personal neurosis. Photography is my way of out-running my demons and re-enchanting my world. My tiny Trojan Horse to their Achilles' heel.

 

In troubled times like these I don't afford myself the luxury of being a neutral observer but underpin my work with a firm political viewpoint.  However grandiose, it's an attempt to evoke the unraveling social fabric, the sentiment of disorientation and erosion of individual subjectivity. Capitalism's collateral roadkill in the age of post-truth and big data. 

 

Photography shot in the shadow of an existential threat. Eschatological eye-candy. A blend of 'Guernica' and The Shangri-Las.
