Bio:

I am a photographer and educator based in London. Coming originally from a film studies background, I went on studying photography in Edinburgh and in London. I hold a BA (hons) from Camberwell College of Arts and a Masters in Sociology: Photography and Urban Cultures from Goldsmiths University where my research concentrated on the reconstruction of Beirut Lebanon, urban space and collective memory.

My work focuses on the varied elements and environments that combine to create cities; from established images of landmarks to the smallest detail and found imagery, a thought or a glance in a certain direction. Also present in my work is the influence drawn from my deep interest in film and the moving image. I tend to work mainly with analogue photography and like to experiment with toy cameras, darkroom based alternative processes such as liquid light and embroidery on found photographs.

I have just completed my teacher training at the Institute of Education and I currently divide my time between teaching at Morley College, in a Sixth Form School in West London, running arts community projects and creating my own work.

April 2014 - Berlin Urban Spree
The Photocopy Club: “This monthly exhibition features photocopied/xerox photography from photographers around the world. What we are hoping to achieve with this project is to get photography off the Internet and get printed matter back in the hands of the public. Photocopying is one of the cheapest ways to get photography printed. Basically we want the show to be like a giant zine that everyone can take a page from.” http://urbanspree.com/blog/event/the-photocopy-club-in-berlin/
