Having grown up in Belfast, I am acutely aware of restrictive manufactured identities. Individuals have unique complex identities these creating the diverse world we live in. Labels and stereotypes are common place, used by individuals and nation states alike. Everything from nationality to physical characteristics are used to group and generalise.
I start my projects with these labels. From these I photograph individuals, using their stories to reform current paradigms held by the viewer and listener. Based in London I partner with organisations looking to reform and disrupt current points of view.
