About

Based in London, available for assignments and commissions. My main focus is in documentary, portraiture and travel.

I hope to make photographs that are authentic, observant, and emotionally engaged. I am often lead by colours and feelings first. In my personal work I have a preoccupation for stories about people and their topographical and historical connections to places, often on specific pathways across land. I’m interested in the influence of place on our experience. I am interested in expanding the possibilities of how documentary photography may be experienced and sometimes experiment with installation and performance to invite an audience to engage with documentary photography in a new way. I make self-motivated projects as well as commissions and have collaborated with artists, musicians, filmmakers and other photographers a number of times.

I have an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the LCC, University of the Arts London, and a BA (Hons) in European Theatre Arts from Rose Bruford drama school. I completed Emergency First Aid training in January 2016.

Whilst I was born and raised in London, my surname is Polish and is pronounced Yen-drosh.
