I am a photojournalist based in Cardiff (UK) and working in creative projects internationally. I studied Journalism in Madrid and Documentary Photography at the University of Wales, Newport.

My documentary practice is concerned with highlighting communities around the globe, which have been displaced through changing social and economic climates. Through my work I hope to re-think and develop imagery that questions the histories and environments we belong to.

One of my interests is the documentation of human traces in spaces in transition exploring how time can alter our perspective and understanding towards certain issues.

For the last five years I have curated the multidisciplinary art project ‘Ghosts in Armour’, an artistic exploration into the declining of an industry that has shaped parallel cultures across Europe.
