Cooper has travelled the world for his art, visiting ‘uncharted’ territories on the boundaries of human civilisation.

The landscape of the Midlands has always captured his imagination, prompting a number of return visits. Taken while Cooper was working in Nottingham as a lecturer on Nottingham Trent Polytechnic’s landmark Creative Photography course, these three small photographs capture his poetic vision of the area. The dense, monochrome images transform environmental features into textures, a tree becoming a streak across the mottled grey of a wall, wild flowers a splash of light against a dark backdrop of undergrowth.
