an idea of north

An Idea of North collates images from photographic projects undertaken in Northern England, Scotland and Ireland, alongside ephemera and appropriated imagery to question the construction through image, story and myth, of an idea of north as both a physical and psychological landscape.

The work was produced as a limited edition 54 page B5 book digitally printed on Evolution Uncoated 100gms and KeayKolour 300gms.

An Idea of North was exhibited at 'Northern Light' an exhibition of contemporary landscape photography held at SIA Gallery, Sheffield Hallam University from 4th - 31st July 2016.
