Statement

Through photography as the primary medium, York documents spaces that often go unnoticed to capture fleeting moments of quietness in natural and built environments. Fascinated by neglected, post industrial and post communist landscapes, York documents the transition of social spaces after the fall of a dictatorship, thriving industry or over developed past. In doing so she seeks to question how these transitions have failed or succeeded, capturing spaces containing the remnants of these transitions. Believing in the notion that "Destruction breeds creation", York investigates the bi products of destruction and seeks out what blossoms in these exhausted landscapes; how space becomes reconfigured and reimagined; what constitutes the notion of 'ruin'.
