Biography*

Design is my main practice, and has been for the last two years. For me, book design is both collaboration and response; with and too and artist and their work. This is my preferred way to work, together, to come to a conclusion which has exhausted all possibilies.

My photographic work is borne out of intuition and an appreciation for the physical world. Often, my imagery focuses on the potential of the unnoticed, and what we choose to ignore; either unconsciously or willingly. Usually this is explored through long-form series’ of imagery; which often focus on a single person or place.

Currently I am making photographs about immigration detention centres in the UK.


Note

I hope this website can serve as a complete archive of my work, but also a learning resource for anyone who may need it.

Which is why I have included all the material and technical specifications of all the books I have made. As well as images of every page of every book, as I appreciate art books are expensive and can be inaccessible.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me and I will help any way I can, if I can.
