GARDEN: Moving to the Midland city of Derby in 1990 from a predominantly rural area of Kent, made a significant impression upon me. Initially the city was only the place where I studied at University. In 1996 I moved to a small terraced house and set about establishing a garden, by planting trees and shrubs, with the attempt to create an oasis amongst the bricks. Photographing in this newly made environment was less about the specific characteristics of these trees and shrubs, but rather the effect of the colours and variations of light at different times of the day.
