NEWS FROM NOWHERE (2022 - ongoing) 

Lorem Ipsum...

News From Nowhere  is a body of work made in intentional communities around the UK. The communities are often off-grid, environmentally conscious and explore aspects of spirituality through connection to nature.

The work's title is borrowed from William Morris' 1890 fantasy novel in which the protagonist wakes from a dream to find himself in a utopian agrarian society based on common ownership and democratic control of the means of production.

The project combines photographs made living and working in communities in England, Wales and Scotland to create a portrait of the possibility of life outside of the oppressive structures of contemporary capitalism, and the desire for community, connection to nature and equality.

Inspired by Morris' own philosophy, in particular his belief in the radical potential of beauty, News from Nowhere sees beauty as a tool to activate and empower the viewer, encouraging its audience to consider the power they hold to effect change; to quote anthropologist and anarchist David Graeber: “the ultimate, hidden truth of the world is that it is something that we make, and could just as easily make differently.”
