About EyeglassZines

On Etsy since 2016

'The voyage out is always a voyage inwards.'

The headline is a quotation from Robert Macfarlane's book, 'The Old Ways', published in 2012. It's a book about walking, memory, writing and writers. I have found it influential in the way it has focussed my efforts to document my walks in the area I live in.

My preferred output medium is the printed zine; a low cost, non-profit DIY publishing format with a long history of radical independence. Experiment and innovation are important aspects of my creative practice and these, I feel, fit well into the playful spirit of zines.

    I am a lens-based artist and poet, using photography and text-work as part of my creative practice, in which I explore places as physical or imaginary constructs. I live in Eastbourne, UK, within walking distance of the South Downs National Park.
