Bio

I am an English/Italian photographer & lens-based artist currently based in Brighton (UK). I work with photography and other lens-based mediums, audio, and elements of live performance. 

As an emerging practitioner my self-initiated projects explore themes of heritage & belonging through portraiture, collage and montage, still-lives, and aspects of the land & nature. I frequently use food, heirlooms, and found objects as cultural symbols and examples of personal storytelling. My work is frequently made in series or sequences, some of which then go on to inform and populate themed projects and bodies of work.

I also work commercially & editorially with brands, marketing teams, and design agencies including The Royal Opera House, Penguin/Random House, Charleston Trust, The Grand Brighton, Entertaining TV, Glyndebourne etc. 

I hold a Master of Arts (MA) Degree in Photography from Falmouth University. In 2021 extracts from my MA project MANNA were published in the contemporary art magazine AIN'T-BAD and were also selected by curators from New Art Exchange & Bloomberg for Source Photography Magazine's graduate showcase. My work has been exhibited at HIPFest, the V&A, Home (Manchester), and Brighton Fringe. My editorial work has also been published in The Observer, the New York Times, the BBC, and in other media outlets.
