Since 2000 my art practice has focussed on The Caravan Gallery, a collaborative project I set up with Chris Teasdale in response to an Art Space Portsmouth commission for a Millennium Bank Holiday weekend event on Southsea seafront. Seventeen years and tens of thousands of photographs later the caravan is still rolling along having exhibited at countless events and locations throughout the UK and abroad.

The Caravan Gallery is a gallery in a caravan that reaches people and places other galleries might not reach.

Our aim is to create a photographic archive documenting the reality and surreality of 'the way we live today' in contemporary Britain, and increasingly abroad. We are particularly drawn to the ordinary and extraordinary details of everyday life, more poignant than ever as regeneration fever - and the effects of the current recession - make their mark on our surroundings.
