I am a photojournalist who has worked on a variety of projects. In the 1990’s I started recording the Thatcher era of political protests and demonstrations throughout London.
I travelled for eighteen months with an NGO to remote regions in the Cordillera Mountains in the Philippines recording the lives of indigenous women for an audiovisual ‘Weaving our own Dreams’. A love of travel took me to the Coromandel region of New Zealand for four years working for newspapers, recording daily life and events. On returning to London I organised a collaborative project with people with complex mental health problems to produce ‘Through the Lens’ documentary photography exhibition.
I studied at Leicester University, the London College of Communication and the University for the Creative Arts, Rochester. I have exhibited in solo and group shows in England, the Philippines and New Zealand and my work has been published in newspapers, magazines and brochures and is held in private collections.
My MA research on social documentary photography in 2010 led to production of a book ‘Shades of Other Lives’ , a series of windows at night, developed in reference to Labour Party comments that “We are all middle class now”.
