Born in Liverpool. Lives and works in the United Kingdom.
The current work Faultlines (2015-19) locates fragments of contested landscape within the UK Oil and Gas Authority onshore licence blocks scheduled for shale gas extraction. Using photography and testimony, the work investigates sense of place and belonging; examining lines of tension between local communities and the contentious method of fossil fuel production using hydraulic fracturing known as 'fracking'. The images are informed and inspired by stories gathered from people met within the anti-fracking movement.

Faultlines is an Arts Council funded collaborative project with ecologist and writer Helen Baczkowska. Click here for the contextual essay.
