I have always had an interest in Documentary Photography and being able to create a narrative through a set of images. Previous documentary work of mine has ranged from a trip to Malawi, Africa in 2014, a series on growing your own sustainable produce and working on an allotment and most recently, my current project on the family album, including my own family. I have been tracing the footsteps of my Grandparents back to where they once worked in the North East of England and where my immediate family came from. This work also covers the decline of two of the most essential industries operating in the North East around 1945-1975, coal mining and ship building.
