My photographic practice is concerned with creating a poetic visual language to explore the hidden and mysterious aspects of the psyche. I use photography as an expressive tool to reveal the emotional aspect of human experience. I am interested in creating imaginary worlds that sit between autobiography and fiction. My inspirations come from philosophy and psychology, I work intuitively and collaboratively, through a process of research, intuition and chance I hope to create narratives which are open to interpretation.
