I have been a practicing photographer for the past 30 years and worked on projects with local and national arts organisations, with work being exhibited widely in the UK.
My work is socially engaged and participation and collaboration is the foundation of my practice.
In 2018 I was commissioned by IKON Gallery Birmingham to complete a summer residency on The Slow Boat to create a photographic installation along the Birmingham Canal, Soho Loop.
My most recent self-initiated project, which concluded in Nov 2018, was TAG a series of photographic studio portraits of LGBTQ+ women in Birmingham that reflects on how they self identify and the impact of labels on their every day lives. It was exhibited as part of Shout Arts Festival touring to four different venues during the 2 weeks of the festival. In May 2019 it was exhibitied during Birmingham Pride weekend.
Presently I'm working on:
Photographic portraits and interviews of LGBTQ+ individuals living in Mid Wales. The final exhibition will take place during Gay History month, Feb 2021 at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Fund by Arts Council of Wales.
TAG part 2.
Following on from 2018 TAG exhibition. I am creating a new body of photographic work exploring diversity and identity amongst LGBTQ+ men of Birmingham. An exhibition of final images and video interviews will be shown at Birmingham Conservatiore during Shout Festival November 2020. Funded by Arts Council England and Mascnet
