Fan Culture and Passions

My series titled Fan Culture and Passions is specifically exploring the culture and passion of football fans. The images are a visual representation, exploring the position in normal times and also during this current ‘lock down’ period, where football has been suspended as a result of the Covid-19 virus. I want my pre-lockdown work on […]

My Hair My Identity

My Hair My Identity project aims empower women in particular black women into accepting themselves for who they are. Black women within society have been highly politicised and dehumanised which has resulted in many black females wanting to change their true identity. Being a black female myself, I know the struggles black women face within […]

Degree Show 2020 Product Photography

Catharsis in Nature

During periods of turbulent emotions and difficult situations I immerse myself in the natural environment, where the issue causing me to feel anxious has no relevance, in order to feel grounded and present again. This sense of calm derived from tranquil natural […]

This project explores the human mouth and its movement in an abject manner with the purpose of creating an adverse reaction from the viewer. The purpose of my work is to subvert the mainstream narrative and connotations of the mouth and discover how that can affect the emotional response of an audience. My practice is […]
