As a documentary photographer, I look to challenge perceptions of truth and reality, formed by the stories we are told and tell. As a person of mixed-heritage I have become increasingly conscious of a sense of belonging and place, raising a number of questions – often without clear resolutions. At the core of this questioning, visual perceptions, including how British I look and feel and how this impacts everyday interactions and my roles in society. My work aims to build understanding of how culture, nationality and the past inform notions of identity. Photography as a tool for seeing and for being seen, provides a creative framework to address complex issues in a playful way. It can be used to question the histories we learn and inherit, to form empathy and encourage us to celebrate our differences.
