With over 17 years working within the museum sector, curating photography collections and exhibitions has been my thing. I was the Curator of Photographs at the Museum of London for many years until 2019. Currently I’m undertaking curatorial work for the commercial gallery Argentea alongside developing a photographic research and exhibition project. I love to work with broad photographic collections and am most inspired when uniting historic with contemporary.
Through my work at the Museum of London I was fortunate enough to co-author 3 books. I have extensive experience in writing for broad audiences, from blog posts to exhibition text, as well as formal publishing. I am currently writing a children’s book with a photography theme. I particularly enjoy writing for a non-specialist reader. Through my museum work and independently I’ve also given talks and presentations from local photography clubs to symposiums at universities and institutions.
In 2001 I graduated with a First Class Hons in Photography from Nottingham Trent University. While I’ve not pursued photographic practice as my main profession, I’ve remained a keen and active photographer, nurturing my passion and visual knowledge through working with and observing so many acclaimed photographers past and present. To date Instagram has fed my creative hunger, but I am now embarking on my first personal photography project for a number of years – exploring the vast green space that is Sutton Park.
