The Recipe series consists of seven reconstructed images from mainstream British newspaper articles and advertising imagery, from the Summer of 2018.  These photographic collages exist as reconstructed compositions, of modern day times, occurring in Britian, USA, Middle East and Asia.  

 

The work questions how we as a modern society begin to digest a daily dose of negative news stories and images? If we are encouraged not to be ignorant of the news then are we to live in a state of shock, dismay and anxiety for the continual future?

 

Images include: Mexican migrants trying to enter into America, the orgins of plastic and its destinations, extreme staff monitoring - from bio implants to scrutinizing computer work devises, the everyday alienation of the low paid capitalist worker, the class system, cultural rituals and education.
