My practice is grounded in photography, while continually branching into other disciplines. The making of pieces and installations that incorporate prints, objects, and found material is a fundamental process in the development of theme and context. Images and objects share an equal platform as artefacts in projects that tap into ethnographic practice and unpick contemporary socio-political themes. 

Born in Sheffield 1992, studying at Chesterfield College and the University of Brighton, graduating in 2015 in Photography. Based at Phoenix studios in Brighton 2017 - 2020.
