Trading Zones
(2018 – ?)

The global economic crisis has made the activities of the ‘finance industry’ a matter of fierce public debate and strong opinion. But behind that reassuringly simple phrase is an enormously complex field, spanning diverse practices, cultures, and jurisdictions. Partly due to this complexity finance has gone largely unrepresented, and yet it is a field with the potential to positively or negatively impact more lives than any other.

Trading Zones is a survey of finance, begun during six months spent as the 2018 Archisle photographer in residence at the Société Jersiaise on the Channel Island of Jersey. It employs a multi-method approach to the subject, engaging with different aspects of it through a constellation of techniques including conventional and cameraless photography, appropriated and manipulated imagery, architectural surveying, data visualisations, opinion polling, and more.

Trading Zones is an ongoing body of work which will continue in the City of London, one of the largest financial centres in the world. I want to continue collaborating with the finance industry in its development. If you work in finance and are interested in discussing a collaboration please get in touch.
