One Hundred Years
One Hundred Years consists of 100 portraits from my community in Hackney, covering every age from one to 100. Paired with revealing quotes from each subject, this series captures not just a community, but the many vital moments of connection, contradiction, growth and reflection that we all experience as we age.

One Day Young
The portrait series One Day Young consists of one hundred and fifty portraits, taken over five years. The women are intimately captured back in their own homes, within twenty-four hours of the birth, challenging the usual sterile hospital images that inform our collective image of this moment. These women exude strength, identity intact rather than the anonymous mother stripped of self. Instead of fear we are presented with triumph.
