Position Statement

Last summer I completed a Bachelor of Arts in photography, with an interest in portraiture, both on location and in the studio. I am currently looking to build up my experience in working in a commercial studio environment.
 
I am avid to continue exhibiting personal projects following my undergraduate studies. I want my own images to eulogize a moment in time and to explore how, in the age of the digital, images within a frame can adapt to maintain their power for recollection. This process of eulogisation has become an obsession of mine, drawing its energy from a plethora of sources and realized in the studio and on location.

In addition, much of my practice emerges as expression through spoken word. As a confident public speaker, disseminating the work through this medium reinforces the performative tension innate to the process of eulogisation, realising its affect.

I am based in London, UK.
