I started my photographic career in 2011. My first project “Awesome Paradox” was selected to be part of the East London International Photography Festival 2011. My second project “5-7 Living with Bi-Polar” was exhibited in the 2012 East London Photography Festival and later that year was exhibited at the Phoenix Gallery, Brighton as part of the Brighton Photo Fringe 2012. As a result of this project I was approached to take part in a campaign about Bi-Polar which was organized by Rethink Mental Illness. A documentary was made and can be seen on “You Tube” under the heading “ Rethink Mental Illness, Siblings.”
The project was also nominated for “The Danny Wilson Memorial Prize.”
Currently I am working on a project called “Bringing Home the War,” which aims to explore traditional quintessential English landscape, at the same time interrupts anticipated interpretations of conventional narrative.
The photographs, rather than being a romantic cliche of Englishness, in fact introduce the complexities, diversity and ambiguities of our modern world.
This project is ongoing. To date it has been selected to be exhibited at The Lucy Bell Gallery, Hastings. In May 2014 it was featured in The Wall Street Journal, as well as been showcased by Photoworks. The project was exhibited earlier this year at P21 Gallery, London NW1. It was also exhibited as part of The Brighton Photo Fringe 2014.
I have a huge passion and commitment to photography. I have come to realize that I need to develop my understanding about the history of photography. I believe that my work will be enriched by studying photography from an historical as well as cultural perspective, therefore currently I am studying for an MA at Brighton University.
