Documentary Photographer

I am a documentary and fine art photographer with a particular interest in our relationship with the natural world. I also make work about disability/difference, community/family. I have exhibited nationally and internationally, including in China, Sweden, America, Germany and France. I have been commissioned by the Guardian, the FT and the Wellcome Collection, amongst others. I live and work in London.  (See ‘News’ for uptodate news).
