These works responded to the idea of landscape photography, with the particular landscape that I responded to being the the Fife coast in Scotland, formerly the site of the Michael Colliery, a former coal mining site that my Grandfather worked in during the post war years. The landscape as it was at the time of mining is no longer, the architecture of the tunnels underneath the feet still in existence, but hidden from view. I approached this site seeking some visual clues to what had gone before, scanning the ground like a survey. the bosy of work ties into my enduring interest between what can be seen and what cannot.
