I am a working-class photographer, community collaborator, educator and activist based in Scotland. My photography sits between documentary and staged imagery. I am interested in local and global communities. I aspire to tell humane stories of people and place often looking through the history of art for visual referencing. Within the communities I document I am interested in environmental issues, human rights, equality, feminism, politics of space, territories and heritage. My photographs are held in several public collections including the National Galleries of Scotland, University of St Andrews, RSA and UK Parliament. My commissioned work is directly linked to my practice often involving charitable campaigns or political organisations for exhibition and publication. Recent campaigns and commissions include Zero Tolerance, Crisis, NHS, SmartWorks, Edinburgh World Heritage and Project Ability.
