This year my work has evolved massively, much more so than in the previous two years of my degree. My main project has looked at how the city of Stoke-on-Trent has changed since the major decline in the pottery industry. I have looked primarily at space making a link between the old and new in… Continue reading Overview
After looking at Bernd and Hilla Becher, I wanted to create my own architectural typology, in a similar style to the ones they created. As I mentioned in an earlier post I am starting to look at Churches and the presence they have in Britain. I have been out and taken three images thus far… Continue reading Live Brief- Architecture
On Monday night, whilst waiting nervously to watch my beloved Tranmere Rovers face Forrest Green in the League Two Play-off semi-final second leg, I received an email that almost made me forget about the game in hand. I was told that I have been awarded the Photography Prize at the Valedictory Awards. At first I… Continue reading Valedictory Award in Photography

I decided that the best platform for me was Squarespace, as many creatives, and especially photographers… Continue reading Website Creation

Cattle have a huge impact on the environment, particularly in regards to the emissions of greenhouse gases. However, it is a difficult subject area, as… Continue reading Man in the environment-live brief
Scott Duffy is an ex-student of the university having studied design. This usually is not my area of interest but his work was inspiring to say the least.
