Her photography is bright, colourful and energetic in style, she is also very approachable and these qualities brings something authentic from her subjects. She is constantly in search of honesty, personalities and stories, its what she finds attractive in people that helps to capture those genuine moments in time.
“When I photograph a subject, I’m not just trying to curate it, I’m reading the way people act, watching how they respond and using that understanding to get the best image on camera. In order to capture these moments, it can take a number of people on set and I am incredibly lucky to have a great team that I can rely on. I usually work by placing a number of people in a situation and then see what happens, having fun and letting it produce itself. I am at ease working anywhere in the world but my home is in East London”.
