He also photographs ‘types’ of architectural features, objects and the post-industrial landscape of the area.

His work has been published and exhibited widely, most recently in the photobook I.D.S.T  (The Modernist, 2020) and The Dereliction (Hercules Editions (2021), a collaboration with the poet Liz Berry. In 2020 a solo exhibition of his wok was staged by Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
