Carl Mole was born in Middlesbrough and raised in Grangetown, a small town built to serve the local Iron and Steel Industry.

He still lives in the local area and works in I.T. He is a self taught photographer and has been passionately photographing the local area for several years using both digital and traditional methods.


"Cleveland is the area in which I was born, I live and work. It is a small county with many contrasts, from the heavy industry of steel and chemicals to agriculture and moorland.

I make photographs of the landscapes of the area, the urban, the banal, the beauty and the ordinary."
