I’m currently available for commission
Birmingham Women’s & Children’s NHS Foundation
In June 2019 I was commissioned by Birmingham Women’s & Children’s NHS Foundation Trust
to produce a series of portraits of healthcare workers who identify as ‘diverse’, have issues surrounding inclusion or have serious but not life-threatening illnesses, to inspire hope among patients, especially on the children’s hospital wards.
Selected as one of forty-two UK-based documentary photographers to contribute photographs to photobook:
In terms of the ethics of socially engaged work, it’s important to me to stay in contact with portrait participants wherever possible. I’m proud to still be working with Aysha and her family. We’re currently preparing to co-create a short film about Odara womens’ network & Meraki Spa.
When commissioned to create a portrait series of ‘Asian women’ in Birmingham I asked what does ‘Asian’ mean? South Asian, British Asian? I photographed a dozen women from all over Birmingham and South Asian, being sure to include Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, as many people’s perception of ‘Asian’, or South Asian, is limited to India, Pakistan and Panjab.
