My work aims to challenge and expand the way that documentary photography covers geopolitical events. My background as an abstract painter informs my practice, resulting in multidimensional projects that use images, found objects, interviews and video. The immersive experi ences I seek to provide for my audience intends to generate a more honest understanding of “the other” while also questioning the contemporary conundrum of image saturation.
I began photographing in 2015 after relocating to Turkey where I became intent on intervening within the images that have formed the dialogue around the Middle East. I moved to Iraq in 2017 and have since been documenting the environment surrounding conflict.
In 2018 I participated in Joop Swart Masterclass and Eddie Adams and worked with National Geographic, Wall St Journal, Washington Post, and Le Monde among others. With support of the British Embassy, I had a solo exhibition, “Roads to Mosul” at the Oxo Tower to raise funds for reconstruction of Mosul.
