Winner of the Oxford Brookes Memorial Prize and shortlisted for the Jerwood Photography Awards.
She is interested in using the camera (still or moving) with or without sound to explore the most fundamental of intervals, the gap, whether it be between her and you, knowing and not knowing, time and distance, beginnings and endings, the past and the future. She is interested in the possibilities of seeing and how the image only ever reveals a fragment of the story.
