Peaks Memoriter, 2022

This project is about my explorations and adventures in the Peaks and how they are a memory of my time here. Some memories will fade over time and become fuzzy, but I now have evidence of these memories in my photographs. A collection of scenes, some of which are pin sharp and others that are less so. Sometimes when recalling memories, it is possible to remember a place in your mind’s eye but not to remember the name of the place, this is highlighted in photographs which are not named. The order in the photo book is nonlinear, but then neither are our memories or recollections of places we have visited. Peaks Memoriter is an ode to my time at university and expresses why I chose to study in Sheffield. One of the main reasons is the Peak District and so I have spent my time exploring the landscapes of this beautiful national park.
