Charlotte Aldred

Charlotte Aldred is an analogue and digital photographer, whose work explores her relationship with the city of Leeds and its hidden spaces. It documents her developing place within the urban environment and learning the varying ways we inhabit it. 

Her work engages in a practice of urban wandering, where she endeavors to never have a destination or a specific route. Through coincidence and arbitrary routes, her photographs discover the city through curiosity. The camera is a method of forcing a closer observation of the surroundings, removing the everyday urge to rush from place to place. This is a mental state of getting lost, stemming from the theory of psychogeography by Guy Debord.
