  • Coasting
    CoastingI spent three months travelling the coast of England, documenting the people I encountered. Disenchanted by the divisive rhetoric that's become so prevalent, I was looking for the universal in the personal and the familiar in unfamiliar people, hoping to create work that evoked a sense of commonality and unity.

  • Equal Lens: meet 100 women photographers
    Equal Lens: meet 100 women photographersAn equal shot for women photographers After looking through the books of over 70 leading commercial photography agents, we found that women accounted for less than 25% of those represented. This isn’t because of a lack of talent, or a lack of desire from agents, creative agencies or clients. It’s a structural problem that must be addressed with big collective actions, such as an industry-wide commitment to always include women photographers on the lists that clients and agencies select from.
