I initiated and ran a series of talks for Photo London exploring the concept of the female gaze and gender representation in photography.

The Arts & photography editor of Dazed, Ashleigh Kane and the Arts & Culture editor from Gal-Dem, Micha Frazer-Carroll, invited artists Jade Jackman and Aisha Pegley to discuss their work and how it can be contextualised within the concept of the female gaze, gender representation & contemporary art world.
