I was interviewed about my work shortlisted in the Sony World Photography Awards for the Art Bahrain magazine. Here’s a few photos of the Spring|Summer 18 edition – the interview is also available online.
I hope that people will look at the project in two ways. Firstly, at the lives that are lived and the individuals in the images. That they see the love, the connection, the resilience but also see the loss, the difficulty. Secondly, I hope viewers will be left with some questions about how society operates, about the role of opportunity and environment, about issues around (in)equality.
It’s Nice That got in touch recently for an interview about In This Place and Family projects. Thanks to Rebecca Fulleylove who wrote a really nice piece on the work. Amongst other things I was asked about the challenges in doing the work as well as recounting what it was like to photograph my family back in 1994. For me this type of work – as most photography – carries a large amount of responsibility with it, in both representing correctly and involving throughout the people that are photographed.
That is a separate post in itself and one I’ll get round to writing as it is massively important to the way I work.
I was super excited to be asked for an interview with FotoRoom recently. It was especially interesting to be asked about how the two projects Family and In This Place relate and give some background to them both. Interesting questions from FotoRoom that made me reflect on the projects together.
I am delighted to have been chosen by Firecracker to be April’s featured photographer. Founded by Fiona Rogers, Firecracker is a fantastic platform supporting women photographers in their practice. I am both honoured and delighted to have work featured from both Family and In this Place.
I am looking forward to extending the project to nearly 40 images. Updates will be posted as the text from participants is completed.
