Please tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a photographer, specialising in portrait, stills and documentary photography. To date I've had a number of jobs to support my photography but look to work full time as a photographer in the not too distant future. I've been published in a number of newspapers and magazines and hope to continue this.
What's your story about?
This story is about a journey I made to Eastern Europe, tracing my family's past. By documenting my family's past and the journey they took I found things out about myself. I left Waterloo unsure of where I fitted in, caught between cultures, and returned confident of who I am and where I'm from.
Why did you choose to tell this particular story?
I started to document my family's past for a number of reasons. One was discovering some information written in my grandmother's filofax, the other being my grandmother's letters. With these clues I made a journey and in the process tell a story about my heritage and a journey that my grandmother made.
Any additional comments?
I've been interested in filmmaking for a while, a logical extension to my photography. I'm just about to embark on making a short film virtually all from stills with a friend and this has been a wonderful introduction. Creatively and spiritually enriching!
