I am a photographer and academic currently teaching in the School of Digital Arts (SODA) at Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK. My photographic practice involves making digital photograms within an algorithmically determined 3D digital space usually used by games and CGI artists. I have exhibited my work nationally and internationally and delivered papers at the 8th International Conference on the Image (2017), in Venice, Italy, titled Virtuality, Photography and Abstraction and Times and Movements of the Image International Conference, Caldas da Rainha and Lisbon, Lisbon Virtually Actual; the circuit of movement (2019) and The Post-Photographic Apparatus International Conference (2019 Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts Lucerne Switzerland. Title: Virtually Actual - The post-photographic apparatus.
I am currently studying for a PhD at MMU. My thesis asks ‘Virtual-Actual: How do photograms emerge in a 3D digital photographic Space?' I have developed specialist interests in nonhuman agency, the post-humanism and the post-photographic that are articulated through my practice.
I am also currently the Education Lead for SODA at MMU which opened in September 2021.
