About me
I am a London based Photographer and Director. I studied at the London College of Fashion, completing a BA and MA in Fashion Photography. My projects have won awards for emerging talent in both Photography and Directing. My short films and image making are constructed of a hand-made world, expressing the human obsession and desire to be perfect through a limitless cycle of physical reconstructions of the self.

  • Crystal Clean
    Crystal CleanThis crystal shell she lives in is striking and audacious, not easy to miss. It acts as a label slapped across her body to be stared at, however, in positive contrast, the glistening casing over her skin draws attention to the beauty of the shape of the female form that shouldn’t be hidden, and should be celebrated. Crystal Clean takes inspiration from 1960s instructional videos and commercials of how to be a well groomed woman. This has been filmed on a mixture of Super8 and digital to create

  • The Salon
    The SalonThe editorial is titled The Salon. The images are a part of my personal work, aiming to create surreal settings through handmade set and prop design, drawing upon everyday beauty actions. The specific reference to hair within this series pinpoints the salon as a physical space we frequent to feed our ‘beautifying’ obsessions. By deconstructing the women within the images there is such a bold and striking sense of beauty when the hair is removed. We hold onto our hair, yet I have never seen a sin

  • Birthday Smash
    Birthday SmashBirthday Smash is a satirical short fashion film which aims to identify and question some of the stereotypes that come with aging and being a middle age woman in the Western media and fashion industry. The film is a collaboration with the British brand Sabinna and is meant to ridicule the stereotypes and show middle-age women in a celebratory light.
  • Quick Fix
    Quick FixA short, but but oh-so-sweet story of a user's journey on the way to ultimate self- optimization. Quick Fix is a fashion film which reveals the narrative strategies and existing issues of femvertising in the form of parody. Illuminating themes of consumerism, beauty and feminism, this playful short, with its abundance of ridiculous products and vibrant colours, satirically questions the notion of self-care online.

Crystal Clean takes inspiration from 1960s instructional videos and commercials of how to be a well groomed woman.
