What is your "camper-van-camino"?

My travels feel like a pilgrimage - revealing remarkable insights into places that have inspired me and changed the way I think and feel.

This Digest is a protest and an antidote, and my photography is another way of telling. It says that these things matter, that they contribute to the quality of our lives, our wellbeing and our identity. It tells us that there are many nuanced layers to the past and to us, as human beings. In a fast changing world this digest focuses on slow time, refinement, relevancy, and ultimately continuity.

I have a home-base in the north of England and travel out from there on lengthy photo projects in the British Isles. I'm a professional architectural photographer and link my travel around the commissoned shoots.
