I am a photographer and educator based in London. Coming originally from an audiovisual background, I went on studying photography and hold a BA (hons) from Camberwell College of Arts. I later graduated with distinction from a Master's in Sociology: Photography and Urban Cultures from Goldsmiths University where my research concentrated on the reconstruction of the central district of Beirut, urban space and collective memory. This series can be seen here.
My work focuses on the varied elements and environments that combine to create cities; from established images of landmarks to the smallest detail and found imagery, a thought or a glance in a certain direction, perhaps never noticed by passers-by. Also present in my work is the influence drawn from my deep interest in film and the moving image. I tend to work mainly with analogue photography and like to experiment with toy cameras, darkroom based alternative processes such as liquid light and embroidery on found photographs.
I have been working in photography, community arts and education for over ten years and have recently completed my teacher training at the Institute of Education. I currently divide my time between teaching at Morley College, working in a Sixth Form School, running arts community projects and creating my own work.
