I have been a practicing photographer for the past 35 years and worked on projects with local and national arts organisations, with work being exhibited widely in the UK. My work has been very socially engaged with participation and collaboration at the foundation of my practice.
My most recent self-initiated project, was Tagmasc, an Arts Council funded project, part of SHOUT! Festival 2020. I worked with queer identifying men in Birmingham to make a series of photographic portraits and audio monologues which where exhibited online as part of the festival. www.tagmasc.co.uk
In 2018 I was commissioned by IKON Gallery Birmingham to do a summer residency on The Slow Boat. Working with asylum seeking women I created a photographic installation along the Birmingham Canal, Soho Loop of their portraits which were printed and pasted 3 metres high on derelict buildings.
Current ongoing projects are:
Queer Country. A photographic project looking at queer identifying individuals in Wales and what it means for them to be living in a rural environment and their connections with that environment.
Bewildered. Queerness, nature and ecology are themes that run throughout my recent work, I am looking at what these mean to me while exploring different print processes.
