I was born in Kenya and moved to England when I was 5 years old. My memories of Kenya are mixed with the super 8 footage that my Dad took of us on safari.

I live in a small apartment in Venice and have made a bed amongst the beams, it’s like sleeping in a nest, and best when raining outside.

Your are going to see now 3 different photography projects. The Disciples, where I photographed fans outside different concerts. I was fascinated by the different tribes of people that attended them, and how people emulated celebrity to form their identity. 

James & Other Apes, portraits of gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans using the aesthetic of the passport photograph, and Where Children Sleep, stories of diverse children around the world, told through portraits and pictures of their bedrooms.
