I’m a photographer captivated by the human condition and complex emotions. My work focuses on themes of wellbeing and the processing of life’s experiences. The thread of intimacy and the desire to connect with both others and myself weaves its way throughout my practice.
I shoot commissions, deliver arts workshops, work as a consultant and teach photography. I’m also the Artistic Director of the Free Space Project, an arts & wellbeing charity providing arts activities and therapies to 27,000+ patients across two NHS sites in north London. Get in touch, let’s work together. View my CV.
I run the Arts & Health Hub, a place for artists to connect, learn & share resources about arts & health. As part of this I run a monthly peer group mentoring and supporting artists exploring health and wellbeing in their practice. In addition I organise events and exhibitions exploring and encouraging the much needed debate on the benefits of arts for those with experience of mental difficulties. I also interview artists over at Fragmentary.org, a website devoted to the exploration of mental health within photography.
I’m based in south London where I live with my sidekick cat, Salvador.
