The human race is merely a statistic. Billionaires, corporations, and people in power are cashing in on the multiplying population. Who is to say that the frozen embryo might be a refugee leaving its war-torn country,or the surviving soldier left by its government to beg on the streets, someone displaced because of a climate disaster, or a hungry person at the back of a queue of a food bank. There is no infrastructure for new babies, food is overpriced, the school system is failing, and there rapid rise in anxiety, especially for young people since austerity and the pandemic.

I am a British photographer. My photography migrates between creative portraiture and documentary photography. I am driven by research-led projects and collaborate with subjects to create cutting-edge images that speak out about current issues, to reveal a truthful voice, and promote unity, equality, inclusivity, and compassion.
