I am a documentary photographer, researcher and lecturer at Leeds Beckett University.

My work has been shown most recently in The Look 15 Liverpool International Photography Festival, The Observer Magazine, The Royal Photographic Society’s Contemporary Photography Magazine, as part of the Tour De France cultural program as well as The Yorkshire Sculpture Park and (the first time the walls of a prison have been used as a space for art) at HM Prison Leeds.
