Training as a photojournalist, I started recording political protests in London in the 1990’s. I spent 18 months volunteering with CWERC, an NGO in the Philippines, recording the lives of indigenous women for an audio-visual ‘Weaving our own Dreams’. I moved on to New Zealand for 4 years working for newspapers. On returning to London I organised a collaborative project with people with mental health problems to produce ‘Through the Lens’ documentary photography exhibition.
My MA research in 2010 resulted in 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”. In 2011-2012, I spent 10 months in Greece, Cape Town and New Zealand working on documentary projects. Recent community projects were ‘Our Work of Art 2018-2019’. I have renewed my NUJ Photojournalist membership and am happy to discuss new ideas and collaborations.
I studied at Leicester University, the London College of Communication and the University for the Creative Arts. I have exhibited in solo and group shows in England, the Philippines and New Zealand. My work has been published in newspapers, books and magazines and is held in private collections
