Some news…I am moving to Sydney, Australia in July to begin working as Director, Audience Engagement at the MCA Australia at the beginning of August. How excited am I!

It’s the end of my online 52 photography project – 29 men and 24 women (I know, it adds up to 53 people, but two of them work as a couple – the Bechers). It’s so enjoyable to do, to research and bring together a range of different kinds of approaches to photography. But I […]
My project entitled 52 is back! For some bizarre reason, I stopped doing it – the last post being back in February.

5252 was a project I set myself; throughout 2013 and 2014, I sent out, via social media and my website, info and an image of a photographer of my choice. I did this to highlight and explore the range of photography that speaks to me, and I say why within each post.
