Mayfields Lavender Farm, Surrey - Over the first lockdown, I decided to find as many obscure phone boxes as I could. Municipal buildings are the best, they have the slowest amount of investment so if you're lucky then you find some old gold. During my hashtag exploration on Instagram, I suddenly scrolled passed this extraordinarily striking K6 that's been repurposed and placed as the star of the show at this lavender farm in sunny Surrey. It was lockdown so I couldn't use public transport, so I cycled the 25 miles from my house to the field on the hottest day of the year. 50-mile round trip in 38 degrees. Anyway, it was worth every mile to see this in the flesh. No matter what situation these phone boxes find themselves in they have exactly the same effect on the people who see them, we can not go towards them. Even when we know they don't work, they draw us in immediately."

Telephone Booths is a continuation of my debut series 'Hand Dryers'. Both series captures the everyday objects surrounding us that we fail to notice to examine what they say about us and the way we treat the world around us.
