Biography

My research-based art practice is guided by an interest in exploring and questioning the role and functions of images in society and our lives, and consists of distinct, conceptually based photographic projects strongly focused and founded on using images as a tool to examine, analyse, develop, and articulate structured frameworks of thought. My work critically explores the social and cultural conventions of different areas of imaging and interpretation, and investigates the persistent role of the relatively inconspicuous, historical assumptions of the inherent photographic reliability, objectivity, evidentiality, and truthfulness. Particularly concerned with conceptually disrupting the easily assumed photographic transparency in our habitual interactions with images, my most recent major work is investigating the conventions of scientific imaging and their impact on our perceptions of reality.

A freelance photographer based in London, I work with my personal art projects and private and corporate assignments.

Primarily busy as a wedding photographer, I also have years of experience working with a wide scope of editorial, commercial, and corporate assignments, with work both published in newspapers, magazines, brochures, books, and on corporate websites.
