I am a writer and photographer from the UK, currently based in London.

After graduating from Roehampton University with a degree in English Literature, I spent a year living in Shanghai working primarily as a writer. Later, I went on to do an MA in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography from the London College of Communication.

As well as working on my own personal projects, I write for The British Journal of Photography, Feature Shoot and LensCulture.

In my photography work, I’m interested in projects that challenge people’s perceptions about particular subjects. In May 2016, I travelled with a group of blind and visually impaired dancers across Mexico and started Dancers in the Dark, a series exploring the therapeutic work of Psicoballet instructor Lorena Nieva. Currently, I’m preparing for a new project about female de-miners in Nagorno-Karabakh.
