Creators of The North

Throughout this body of work, I aim to represent and celebrate the importance of a number of creative job roles around the North East of England. Now more than ever there needs to be a wider representation of the people working in these environments. These photographs are a response in recognition of the fundamental and unique skills that shape this part of Northern England. From a variety of portraits to still life shots, I have explored the lives of eight different creatives in their places of work. Using a medium format camera with a tripod allowed me to slow down and take a more methodical approach to my work. This enabled me to establish and develop my practice in the realisation of producing a document of this time.
