Lives and works in London

Bio: My visual practice uses digital alongside analog, as a technique of of experimenting. My ability to chemically change a photograph has become a new fascination. To break down the surface of the negative, distorting the initial image and using different surfaces to go beyond the photographic frame. My main focus is nature and the human form, natural beauty distorted/ attacked. My photography is not necessarily created to resolve issues but is made as a response to a realisation, the true beauty of the body and nature in its most natural form. My interest for textiles have become an integral part of my visuals, directly stitching onto an image or using fabric as a surface. I believe that the photograph can be taken past the two dimensional and become a sculptural form.
