About me
My background in philosophy has influenced the way I approach my subjects. I strive to achieve portraits that reveal an intimate moment about a subject and invite the viewer to think beyond a facial expression. Being involved in a diverse range of freelance jobs such as fashion launch campaigns, working with NGO’s, creating commercial content for brands and running my own portrait studio has shaped me into a person who is ready to take on any challenge. I found myself exploring all sorts of subjects, from Ibiza dancers to nuns in a convent, though I use the medium of photography as a personal research to explore what goes on inside someone’s mind. My latest project, ‘Behind the I - a portrait of the mind’, endeavours to understand people’s inner selves through art, and identify who they are and how they feel through a collaborative approach. The final result of a book and an exhibition for my MA, with a special mention on BBC, aims to visualise the inner self and start a conversation about feelings that most tend to keep secret.

How could one make such a sacrifice and decision to live amongst the walls of one house and give up all the other aspects of life? This is an ongoing project th
  • Portraits of the Mind
