I began experimenting with photography and filmmaking aged 13 as a means of dealing with the stress of caring for my two profoundly autistic brothers. Photography and filmmaking became my escape, a place where my background didn't matter as long as I had my passion in these subjects. They became a conduit for whatever genre I was interested in at the time, beginning with fashion when I was a teenager. At 18 I was chosen by Rankin and Tuuli to be featured in the first issue of Hunger magazine as part of a competition called 'Dig The New Breed', showcasing the work of young up-and-coming fashion photographers.
Set on becoming a fashion photographer, I then went to Middlesex University. Being exposed to so many other genre's of photography made my work grow too; I truly began to understand over the next three years what it meant to use photography as a healing tool, and a tool to help people understand what they perhaps wouldn't without this exposure to imagery.
It is with this in mind that I began my project 'Any Other Name', (originally 'Spectrum'), a project exploring my past and the representations of issues surrounding my family, including autism, addiction and abuse, eventually producing a book and a short film.
Without photography and filmmaking, I would be lost. It shaped my teenage years, and continues to set the framework for the woman I'm going to become. I believe my work expresses this much too.
