My work is focused on the interplay between images and their physical properties. I am curious to explore the possibilities of photography by experimenting with, printing techniques, layering, textures, and installation. To this purpose, I photograph in large part on film because it supports an honest approach to my subjects. Portraiture, abstraction, landscapes and nudes have equal importance within my practice to elements such as books, or odd paper. I attempt to determine the genre of a photograph by its context rather than its content. The goal is to reach a state of ‘timelessness’ when it comes to image-making whether it be by modifying chemicals in the darkroom, scratching negatives in the camera-body or using the ink and the printer with incompatible paper.
I have previously collaborated with art students and dancers, worked with fashion designers, and jewellery makers. I take pleasure in creating a bespoke atmosphere for a product, a composition, which can fold out in a playful game with the perspective, slicking to the concept of the maker.
I graduated in 2019 from the University of Brighton BA (Hons) Photography, receiving a Photoworks(UK) award for my degree project ‘Thought after Taught’.
