Living On

Each of these works focus on an ‘inhabited space’ – an environment that people call home, work, community. Each space, or place, has been destroyed – by natural forces, dominating authorities, sectarian violence. The sites span across the world from China, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Iraq, Syria, Trinidad, England. This spread of locations is neither encyclopedic nor even-handed. They are a snapshot of events from around the world that have caught the my attention.

The images highlight challenges to people’s rights and their quality of life; humanity demeaned by forced demolition and eviction, environmental forces and war. They are derived from photographs – taken from newspapers and online media, or photographed myself.
