British environmental, fashion and documentary photographer based between London and Glasgow.

My work is a play of time, space and story. My process is made up of exploratory experiences and an open dialogue between myself, subject and the surrounding environment. I work with what is local to the body, as it is a space you perform yourself and your understanding of the world. 

 

I use space, texture and colour to transcend a particular feeling or quality in myself that has responded to a feeling or quality found in the subject and the environment around me. This reciprocates from subject, to myself and outward into the environment to shape individual characters and tell a story of each experience.

I pick up on different voices, presences and perspectives in my direct experiences and reflect on these. It is my intention to show humanity as part of the world and not separate from nature. Through this unity I also intend to reveal the diversity of each individual through their own story. 

 

I follow nature. I see nature as alive and ensouled in the same way the body is so it is important there is a mutualism between both within my imagery. My vision sees human activity not at the centre of natural and built environments but in balance and coherence with other living systems.
