Short bio:
I am a London-based photographer, a recent graduate from Middlesex University. In my work I want to draw the attention to what lays beneath the surface of things and capture the sensitive, intimate and poignant moments in life. I was the winner of the 2014 D&AD Yellow Pencil for Photography and a winner of the Daniel Blau Gallery’s first ‘5 under 30’ Young Photographers Competition. In 2013 I was shortlisted for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize in the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Why do you photograph on film?
Sensitivity is core to my work I find that film is the best way to translate it.

What is your work about?
My work is an exploration of photography used as a poetic language. It is my personal response to the flow of life, where everyday events are transformed into poignant memories. The subjects of the photographs are not only the protagonists of their stories; they are vessels for my thoughts. As such the viewer is invited to re-interpret these fleeting moments through the hidden reflections of their own memories and experiences.
