I am a documentary photographer based in London, available for assignments and commissions. My work has featured in print and online publications including The Sunday Times, the Metro, iD, EasyJet Traveller, Narratively and the BBC.
In my personal work 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 have collaborated with artists, musicians, film makers 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.
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 including for The Sunday Times and Thomson Reuters Wider Image.
I completed Emergency First Aid training in January 2016.
