About me

 

Based in the UK, many years of studio experience within the commercial and editorial industry. Worked with international photographers and award winning hair dressers in high end studios in London. My unique perspective and experience has taught me the importance of collaboration with clients and creative direction within studio photography. My personal work focuses conceptual ideas and whimsical narrative of surrealist photography to fuse nature and psychological displacement, seducing the bizarre and distorting reality. My documentary practice toys with both the allure and estrangement of the mundane. Energetic and ambiguous recordings of an environment aim to bridge the grey area between a document and art. My representation of realism conveys quirks and characteristics of a particular culture or society. Driven by my vivacious lust for experiencing the unknown, as well as my fascination with 20th century social documentary photography.
