SOME OF THE PLACES I HAVE BEEN ALL THESE YEARS

Philip Welding was born in Leicester, UK, and is Course Leader of the BA Hons Photography at Leeds College of Art. In 2000 he graduated from Nottingham Trent University, then completed an MRes at Leeds Metropolitan University in 2012. His work fits into a narrative that he has been exploring for ten years in various forms, that incorporates notions of labour, creativity, boredom, resistance and productivity to critique our relationship with daily working lives.
