My photographic and moving image based work has been concerned with hierarchies of vision, surveillance and contested territories. Insecurity examined the global phenomenon of privatized global security, utilizing this modern hyper-industry as a metaphor for analyzing global insecurity. Subsequent projects have included Kill House, a photographic navigation through a US based military structure used for the training of private military personnel prior to deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan and Super Border - photographs taken along the route of the newly opened 300 million euro External Integrated Vigilance System on the southern Andalucian coast in Spain.
I studied photography and moving image at WSCAD Farnham, completing an MA at the Royal College of Art and PhD at the University of New South Wales. I have taken part in over forty solo and group exhibitions including at Fotomuseum Winterthur, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television in Bradford and the Whitechapel Gallery in London. Recent group and solo exhibitions include The History of Now, F/STOP Fotografie Festival Leipzig; Something That I’ll Never Really See, a Victoria & Albert Museum Collection touring exhibition; and Darkside II, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland. I have work included in a number of survey publications including in The Photograph as Contemporary Art, Thames and Hudson World of Art Series (ed. Charlotte Cotton 2014); 100 European Photographers, Exit Madrid (2014); The Critical Dictionary, Black Dog, London (2011); and Michael Langford’s Basic Photography, Focal Press (2009). My photographs are held in public and private collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum’s permanent collection in London and the Martin Z. Margulies collection inMiami. I am represented by Gimpel Fils in London.
