Archive Explorations

From 2012-2015 I was commissioned by Newcastle University to photographically document tangible items from the Bloodaxe Poetry Archive that were to be digitized and organized into their new home in the Robinson Library at the University. Additional assignments in archives followed, including The Northeast Heroes Project in the Woodhorn Museum Archive and the Northern Poetry Library project, the largest collection of poetry outside of London, then housed at the Morpeth Library.
