I am a hybrid designer based in London, where I currently am studying at Central Saint Martins. My practice focuses on identity and unease of memory. ver since I can remember, I have documented my surroundings. Initially, I started creating videos but I found the commands boring and frustrating. I didn’t really think about anything except trying to fit in, until I found the medium of photography. I am immediately drawn to cinematic work - using good light and space to create a mood. I feel that my approach is evolving. I shoot intuitively. There is little variation between personal and my commercial work. Generally, my projects are constructed around the concept of home. Revisiting my past through different motives. I enjoy being out and thinking about ways I can present my work. Why it feels a certain way to me. The more I reflect, the more I release that place is something tangible - you can see it, touch it and smell it. I am fascinated by Great Britain, an interest that is rooted back to my childhood. I spent a lot of time in England, going back and forth between my divorced parents, I have never felt stable in my family homes, at fifteen I moved onto a small boating community, at nighteen I moved to London, I am so greatful to have met such amazing people here. Standing on cultures, two histories, two warped memories I attempt to put experience into each of my projects, creating a paradox between distance and belonging. The mediums gathered in my practice might be varied in focus, but they all share an initial moment of open-air absorption. Close to home, produced in the early morning or caught in passing, this is the sort of work that requires a state of complete immersion.
- 'Trails'While it is never quite clear to us where such a trail begins or ends, it nonetheless grants us a way to engage with those who have trodden it before us as well as those tasked with keeping it open after we are gone. “Whatever lies between is called interface, whatever allows us to link two different elements, to reconcile them, to put them into communication.”
