Biography

 

I am a London based photographic artist, graduating from London College of Communication, University of the Arts London in 2017 with a Batchelor of Arts in Photography.

I work primarily with photographic materials, but also enjoy incorporating other practices and mediums into my work such as bookbinding, paper making, film and sculpture. My interests lie in working with the environment and organic materials. I find the challenge of intertwining the organic into the photographic medium particularly interesting and stimulating. I am drawn to this haphazard, unpredictable way of making images. Attempting to control and dictate the outcome, but, more often than not, failing. It becomes a collaboration between the materials and me.

My artists practice thrives by limitations, often focusing around one particular material, working to understand its importance, capability and potential as an artistic medium and tool of opportunity. I believe that art holds the ability to raise questions and challenge the social understanding in society. It is essential to use art as a sight of connectivity to create a discourse surrounding contemporary critical issues.
