I've been working on a body of work around a minor British A-road since 2009. I regularly walk along the roadside in search of something, although I'm not sure what that something is, I think maybe that's what the work is about. I haven't shown the work to anyone since my graduation in 2010. But, inspired by Photograd, I suddenly felt a desire to try and show someone what I might be searching for, or what I might be thinking, or dare I say, what I might be feeling. So, off I went, in search of a sign which might in some way articulate at least some of the above. I made no photographs, until just outside the former mining town of Coalville when I was stopped in my uncertain tracks and confronted by this recently confident 'sign of the times'.
