I am a photographer and art practitioner based in London. Currently working as a Photographer on the Tate Year 3 Project - a new artwork from Steve McQueen, which opens to the public on 12th November 2019.
As a photographic artist, my work explores patterns in history, memory and the legacies we leave behind.
My ongoing series Recollection explores the lives of people living with dementia, creating visual legacies that tell their life stories in a single image. This work was initially funded by IdeasTap and is being facilitated by Resonate Arts.
Alongside legacy, I am passionate about gender issues and another strong focus of my work is on women. My photography book Females Of The Fringe documents female comedians and considers the role of gender in comedy. In 2016, I became a Contributing Editor and Project Manager at The Old Girls' Club, an organisation that supports women in photography.
I've undertaken two large-scale commissions about legacy. I created and designed billboard and banner displays for a street exhibition promoting and celebrating The Gannochy Trust's 75th Anniversary in 2012. Following that, I was commissioned by Scottish Opera to travel throughout the UK over an eighteen month period, taking 400 portraits as part of a heritage project. The portraits are now on permanent display in the new Theatre Royal foyer.
