I am a British woman sharing my time between France and England. I work as a photographer, writer, designer and teacher. I run courses in self-portraiture and workshops in writing and am part of an artist collective in Bourgogne. I work for the town hall in Bourgogne, archiving photographs and making contemporary dossiers of the region and its people. Currently I am working on a theatre adaptation of Everett Reuss, based on the true story of a teenage boy who disappeared in 1930 in Salt Lake City, with 6 musicians and 2 actors. It is to tour in 2016.
This series of photographs show my daughter Florence navigating her way through the turbulent teenage years. Showing her dreamy, eccentric and unique nature, the images work as a memory bank of her changing exterior exposing a stillness, an intensity mirroring my own complexities. Florence did not talk until she was four years old and now, tri-lingual, chooses words delicately and carefully. The images evoke the wordless Florence.
