My two main strands of work currently are, firstly, a project that I commenced while completing an MA in photography at Falmouth University – examining urban solitude, how people variously experience and relate to this state of being alone (and sometimes feeling disconnected) in the modern world. This work encompasses portraiture, landscape images and text, with excerpts of free creative writing or interview transcripts presented alongside images to better tell this universal story. The work from this project can be seen here: https://reachingout.gallery
The second focus of my work is currently related to mental health and how we can express emotional and mental anguish photographically.
More generally, my work tends to evoke sentiment and explore the idea that we are surrounded by beauty in the urban environment every day, often in places where you might not think to look. My work often also serves as an exploration of my own internal emotional monologue and memories.
I shoot portraits too, I love shooting people actually, and portraiture as well as photography-related writing are increasingly important strands of my practice.
