MA work

Stories are at the heart of what inspires me as an image-maker.


I have always loved the idea of immersion, a quality essential to a good story. In my practice, I engage with this concept by creating new worlds, which invite the viewer to linger. In these places, the real and the imagined meet to become something new.


My work is created on a lightbox and shot with a camera. Like a director, by manipulation of light, focus and perspective I can create a cinematic quality to support my vision for the story I wish to tell.
