This blog site focuses on projects in the making, and areas for discussion around my current research in socially engaged photographic practice.
For my main website for a full portfolio of previous work please visit:
I am a practitioner with 12 years experience in socially engaged practice as both artist and curator. My understanding of, and critical thinking about this practice has grown through institutional roles (Communities Curator, FACT, Creative Producer at CFCCA, Manchester, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, and freelance for Open Eye Gallery and the curatorial agency wewioraprojects). As part of my Open Eye Gallery role, I have been working with partners across the UK to develop a network of Socially Engaged Photography Practice (SEPN) working to support the discussion and acceleration of this type of practice.
Increasingly I am simultaneously employing both artist and curator expertise, for example in the FACT Veterans film club & digital Over60s projects, delivering critically engaged quality artwork with communities across health, community & heritage settings.
