I am an urban photographer / visual sociologist based in south-east London. I studied Photography at the London Institute, College of Printing (now London College of Communication), completed a Master's in Photography and Urban Cultures at the Sociology Department of Goldsmiths College, University of London, and am currently studying towards an AHRC-funded PhD in Visual Sociology at the same institution. My main research interests are urban communities, the regeneration and gentrification of London, the representation of class, visual research methods and participatory photographic practice. My latest publication is an article in the Ethical Record, the journal published by Conway Hall, and some of my papers can be read online on my Academia page. I am also keeping a research blog (deptfordischanging.wordpress.com) where I am posting findings of my PhD research that looks at the impact of the regeneration of Deptford, south-east London, on local residents. I am a member of the Centre for Urban and Community Research at Goldsmiths, Urban Photographers Association, and the International Visual Sociology Association. I have exhibited my work widely in many (inter)national solo and group shows (click to see CV). I work as an Academic Support Tutor on the Master's Programme for Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication (LCC). (I also have a background in teaching and a Master's in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching from King's College, London).

I am co-organiser of the annual symposium Engaging in Urban Image Making, hosted by CUCR Goldsmiths, and the symposium Walking Places, hosted by Dinamia' CET-IUL, the Centre of Socio-economic and Territorial Studies at University Institute Lisbon.

I have participated in the following projects: 
CW, The London Villages Project, The McMillan Herb Garden, The Elephant's Journey and Framing Urban Narratives
