Info

 

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’m the director of the Free Space Project, an arts & wellbeing charity providing arts activities and therapies across two NHS sites in north London. In addition to this I shoot commissions, deliver arts workshops, work as a consultant and teach photography. Get in touch, let’s work together.

I run Fragmentary, a website devoted to the exploration of mental health within photography. As part of this 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 live with my sidekick cat, Salvador.
