"I am interested in creating photography and film that looks at personal stories, responding to locations and histories. Much of my work has explored narratives around the experience of migration, diaspora, and my own lived experience.
I am particularly drawn to exploring the hidden stories, and give voice to those that are silenced or marginalized.
I always look to find ways to reflect and communicate the diverse world we live in, through contemporary art practice in a way that is authentic and that it is meaningful engagement.” Carolyn Mendelsohn
