My first collaboration with Sunil Shah; Artist, Writer, Curator. After connecting with Sunil on Twitter last year, I was delighted when he contacted me with a view to showing some of my work at this historic site. He wanted to show a selection from my series ‘The Golden Mile’, taken in Leicestershire between 2006 – 2012.

Greenham Common or RAF Greenham Common is a former Royal Air Force station in Berkshire, England.
