An Introduction


I am a 24 year old Photographer currently completing my Masters in Photography at The Royal College of Art in London. I graduated from Photography in Belfast School of Art in 2014 with a First Class Honours and have had numerous exhibitions since.
My personal projects are conceptual (and often autobiographical) exploring ideas of freedom, experience, sincerity and identity. Photographing different subjects to illustrate these ideas, with performative aspects to my work.
