Recent projects have explored the practicalities and functions of making large scale reportage drawings in public places. In India and Morocco the intention was to promote discussion around the fragility of the traditions and skills of street workers (pappad makers, laterite masons, horn comb carvers, storytellers etc.). In England (Forest of Bowland AONB, Cuerden Valley and Rare Breeds Survival Trust projects) the focus has been on recognising the human endeavour (often of volunteers) that shapes our countryside. The Expanded City map drawings document and overtly question the emotional effect of changes in the landscape (past, present and future).
