About

I am a documentary photographer based in London. I am drawn to stories about people and their topographical connections to places, how a person takes up space, and how spaces inform experience. I am interested in expanding the possibilities of how documentary photography may be experienced and 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 collaborations. I have a Masters in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the LCC, University of the Arts London, and a BA (Hons) in European Theatre Arts from Rose Bruford.

I am a member of international photography collective M55Reports. I run Photo Scratch, a bi-monthly night for documentary photographers to show case new work-in-progress projects in Hotel Elephant Gallery in London, SE1. I also free-lance picture edit at The Sunday Times and Thomson Reuters Wider Image.

I completed Emergency First Aid training in January 2016.

Based in London I am available for assignments and collaborations.
