Mirror with a Memory

Artist Moving Image
Currently filming


Impermanence in motion. “Mirror With A Memory” is a filmic and photographic study of a disappearing England as we experience a transitional period in history, as seen through the eyes of the last non-digital generation.

Over the last three years I have travelled throughout the country documenting trades, traditions, cultures and ways of living that are under threat of discontinuation.

The film is also one of personal reflection living in this country. This will be presented through private, public and familial vignettes.

Shot exclusively on 16mm and 120mm Kodak film, the project will culminate in an exhibition with 
live score. 

Work in progress screened at The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.


Scored by Dean Jones and Kevan Hardman.
Funded by The Chalk Cliff Trust and Video 
Jam.

Beckett

Living in isolation, Beckett struggles to find direction in his life in the wake of becoming a father. Finding no solace in his religious faith, he acts to change his ways and faces the family he has neglected.


Shot on 16mm, “Beckett” is a fictional filmic portrait centred on inhibited masculine emotion and the personal and physical effects of this.

Premiered at London Short Film Festival 2018.
