About

I grew up in Essex, went to art school, and primarily made my living as an editorial photographer. Ten years ago I started making my own work, long form portrait series spending years investigating different themes within my community. This work has now been published as two monographs.

The first, One Day Young, is a celebration of women as they transition into motherhood. 150 women captured in their own homes within the first twenty-four hours of having a baby. This series has had international success, winning numerous awards and has been exhibited in the UK and Internationally. The second book Hackney Studios is an exploration of the creative network, each artist nominating the next, leading me on a  journey of authenticity discovering 150 new spaces along the way.
