I am an artist/photographer born in London (UK), currently living and working in Victoria, BC (Canada)* whose practice is in both photography and sculpture. Since graduating from Winchester School of Art (UK) with a BA in Fine Art, my approach to photography has become more and more experimental, where transformations occur in-camera, at times producing semi-abstract imagery. During these explorations I try to record both the visible and the invisible, to reveal something beyond our human perception. A three-dimensional element is then often introduced using these photographs as a raw material, before the final work is presented.
Over the years, I have been fortunate to exhibit my work in countries across four continents and to date I’ve been in over 100 exhibitions. This includes numerous photo festivals from Format International Photography Festival (2011 and 2015 editions), Derby; Brighton Photo Fringe Festival (2006, 2009, 2016 and 2018 editions); Ways Of Looking Photography Festival, Bradford; London Pinhole Festival (2014 and 2016 editions) and ACTINIC Festival, Edinburgh (all in the UK). To Rencontres d’Arles, International Photography Festival, France; The Desert Festival, Central Australia: OFFO Polish Festival of Pinhole Photography, Poland (VIII and IX editions); and PhotoIreland Festival, Dublin. I’ve also shown in Five Points Gallery, CT (USA); Fotogalerie Wien, Vienna; Photofusion and A.P.T Gallery, London; Millais Gallery, Southampton; Old Museum Arts Centre, Belfast; and Milton Keynes Gallery (all in the UK) to name a few.
In 2021 I was awarded the inaugural Glover Rayner Prize (UK) for photography and a Greenlight production grant from MediaNet (Canada). I also received a grant from the Eaton Fund (UK) in 2017 and was the recipient of the Hotshoe Photofusion Award (UK) in 2015. My work is held in both private and public collections.
