Yesterday my new show ‘Aliens Among us’ opened at the Roots and Fruits café in the Grand Arcade in Leeds.
For this exhibition, I have chosen two different subjects: the electricity pylons which stride our land like steel giants, and which featured in several of the notorious ‘Public Information’ films of the 1970’s, and Giant Hogweed, the Triffid-like toxic weed that, in recent years, has generated regular front page horror stories.

Through the photographs, I explore how these alien visitors, while possibly threatening, also possess a unique and hypnotic fascination.
