As a photographer, I have a particular interest in different landscapes and the way they are shaped by human activity. Working closely with communities and individuals, I have spent the past 20 years as a photographer, and probably my whole life, being fascinated by the intricacies of rural life. In recent years I have collaborated with North Yorkshire hill farmers, Icelandic puffin hunters, Finnish ice swimmers and Romanian nomadic shepherds for publications and exhibitions.

My project Home Work was published by Dewi Lewis in 2010 and was exhibited and published nationally and internationally including the Land exhibition as part of the Noorderlicht Festival, 2010. Home Work explores the lives of female home workers in the suburbs and villages in and around Hanoi, Vietnam in the face of increasing urbanisation.

My work draws attention to observing details which we usually let slip by unnoticed and aims to contribute to the ongoing debate about the changing nature of rural life.

I am currently based in Vientiane, Lao PDR where I am working on my long term project The Corridor of Opportunity which is supported by Arts Council England and undertaking editorial and NGO commissions throughout the SE Asia region. My series The Women of UCT6 which documents an all-female UXO clearance team in Laos was published in The Financial Times Magazine (UK) and online.

My work is represented for licensing for features and single images by In Pictures

I am represented for print sales by Klompching Gallery in New York.
