Photography: A Portfolio from 2017


These images represent a selection taken while studying ‘Expressing Your Vision’ with the Open College of the Arts. Some are assignment work, others are personal explorations.

Westminster Bridge (part of a series that degrades) inspired by jpegs by Thomas RuffMarch (48 of 99)


An image exploring ideas for an assignment ‘languages of light’. I have heard the message of the bible described as ‘light’, and so the language of light I wanted to explore was biblical text. I was particularly interested in the way religious text is used by some to continue to exclude women from many areas of life. week to 6_5 (21 of 39)
