These photographs of British, post-war council housing estates have been the subject of a number of conference papers and presentations including: “At once irrational and objective”: photography between the vulgar objects of the everyday and the partial landscapes of memory and desire. (conference on Affective Landscapes, at Derby University, 2012) and Poetic, Irrational & Objective: The legacy of Mass Observation’s Imagery. (Mass Observation 75th Anniversary conference, Sussex University, 2012).

This work is also the subject of a book chapter published in: Berberich ed., Affective Landscapes in Literature, Art, and Everyday Life, Ashgate, 2015.
