2009 Sony World Photography Awards - Winner, Conceptual & Constructed, Professional Competition
Drawing from an MA in Documentary Photography and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, my work examines layers of the psyche and the tension found between the natural world and our modern existence, whether in the ice fields of Iceland or my own back garden. I work instinctively to respond to my personal experience, using subconscious narratives and a sense of ritual to engage the audience and challenge the “disembodied eye” of Cartesian rationality.
