For Collection II I chose to show images from No More Than a Mile, a personal project documenting the environment surrounding home in Pattiesmuir, Fife.

I set out to make pictures of the area and build a personal record of my local environment and I continue to do this.

Before any shooting I had not made a decision to restrict the work to a specific distance or boundary but it became clear that the desire to remain rural in itself offered such a restriction.

I view this environment as primarily minimalist. This offers me the opportunity to work in a manner and in surroundings which contrast with the arguably more structured/considered built-up environments that form the majority of work subjects.
