Tomorrow is the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. I’ve been working for some time with the poppy as my subject matter and now seems a good time to share three of these images.  Paper can be both fragile and resilient, so it is with the poppy; this, together with its poignant symbolism, makes it the ideal subject for exploring the interconnections between process, medium and subject.  These three images are my personal tribute to those men who died in the Battle of the Somme a century ago.
