I am a photographer and writer available for commissions based near Farnham, Surrey, in south east England, just 45 minutes from London. I also regularly work in North Wales.
I was born in England to English and Irish parents and grew up in North Wales before moving to New York for 15 years to pursue scientific research on human viruses. In 2018 I returned to the UK.
This research background has informed my projects that concern science and health, and has led to a wider interest in the concept of One Health, which recognizes the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment.
My more recent work explores personal connections to place, the land and natural environment, how each of those, and the connections between them, are changing.
Increasingly I am seeking to move beyond digital photography and am drawn towards making physical expressions of my images that will create a tangible link with the project by printing on other materials than standard inkjet/giclée paper. This has also made me re-examine my practice with the aim of making it more sustainable.
In 2017 my ongoing project on people of North Welsh heritage in the northeast US was exhibited at Northern Eye Festival. it was subsequently awarded a commission from the Welsh Parliament in 2019 for exhibition around Wales in 2019-20.
At a fundamental level I pursue what I am most curious about, and as a former scientist I find that photography and science are both reliant on a curious nature and keen observation of the world around us.
