I am a visual artist whose practice is broadly concerned with entanglements of land, vision and natural science. I engage widely with archives, both real and imagined, to explore the tensions between personal and systematic forms of knowledge. I currently hold a Fellowship at the University of Arts London, and have recently been awarded a Wellcome Trust Arts Award for a project on social and cultural aspects of medical imaging. I have exhibited widely in group shows both in the UK and internationally, and my recent body of work, A Handful of Soil for the Whole Horizon won the MACK photography prize, and was exhibited at the Photographers’ Gallery as part of FreshFaced+WildEyed 2015.
I am also an associate artist with the award-winning Performing Medicine programme.
Alongside my own practice, I have been very involved with participatory photography projects. I also run a training course in photography and participation for the charity PhotoVoice.
