I am a passionate young photographer, graduating with a first-class honours degree in photography from Solent University, Southampton in 2018. As a creative practitioner, using photography as a medium to reveal my journey, often led through walks I take. I wander into the lives of others, seeking an interest in sharing the relationship I build with the people and places I encounter. I believe it is important to build trust between photographer and sitter, allowing the images to share intimate and organic narratives. Primarily, my work is captured on medium format film, I learn most when I walk with my camera and the importance to reveal the sensitivity of what and who I capture is key, this correlates with the thoughtful process of analogue photography.
In Annelies Strba’s ‘Shades of Time’ (1997), IIma Rakusa talks of Strba’s photographs in a poetic manner. I look for my work to engage in a similar stance as IIma states, and in doing so, revealing and uncovering themes of memory, love and loss through storytelling.
