A couple of recent publications. I won first prize for Manifest's International Photography Annual 1 and unfortunately for everyone my face is on the cover too. My copy should arrive in the next couple of weeks, so I'm excited to see it! Also 'Being Mum' from OINLTO is in Flash Forward 2012. I went to the London launch the other day at Photofusion, which runs for a few more days.
I've been lucky enough to receive a bursary for my MA, which I will be starting in a few months. I'm excited to start work on the project that I have in mind.
The printing of my book has been delayed until I can find a date that suits me, which means more time to really feel happy with it. I'll be glad to finally have it in my hands one day...
17th October 2012

Also added some new portraits of the lovely Sophie to the portraiture page, as well as having moved 'American Summer 2009' into there as well - the black and white portraits.

13th May 2011
Updating on last time it looks like the 'visual arters' amongst the UKYA-ers are heading to Thessaloniki, Greece in October. At the end of the day I don't think it matters which country we head to its just going to be a great experience meeting a lot of other young creative people from many different countries.
The venue for my work in Guernsey has been confirmed. It's going to be: 11 Commercial Arcade, St Peter Port. The festival opens on the 1st June so its not far away now, I'm looking forward to having time to go over and see all the many exhibitions - I'm especially excited for Samuel Fosso's talk.
& yesterday the lovely Aline over at Lenscratch made a post about my work.
& I'm also in the summer issue of Visual Overture with a couple of pages showing pictures from Reality of Youth Going Backwards in Vain & One Is Not Like The Other.
6th April 2011
So the other week I went to Nottingham to meet up with the other UKYA-ers who are going to Morocco. Due to the circumstances in Libya it might be moved so we're waiting to find out if it remains the same or if we are going somewhere else. Everyone who took part in UKYA were invited to take part in being given 48 hours to respond to someone elses work which would be sent to them.You can see the result here.
Also some of my R.O.Y.G.B.I.V pictures were chosen for Issue #46 of F-Stop Magazine.
& I won first place in the students self portrait catagory of the Pollux Awards. You can view the many awardees here.
14th February 2011
Have finally got round to uploading One Is Not Like The Other. I finished the project around October and have been sat on it since then. It's the project I've made in response to the theme of 'identity' which was given to me by the Guernsey Photography Festival and which they funded. I realise that identity is one of the main themes within my work anyways so it was great to make the project for them. I am excited to show it in June 2011 along with Reality of Youth Going Backwards in Vain at the festival.
28th January 2011
Few online links:
'Why?' is on Plates to Pixels Gallery for an online showcase of self portraits
& The other day I received a nice email asking if Esquire Russia could show 'The Squirrel's Playground' on their website. So those went up this morning, its nice to have that project asked for as since I made it and completed it I haven't done anything with it.
& a small article on Sick of the Radio about my Hunting For Bees project.
14th January 2011
Added a Self Portrait section to the website. It includes some portraits from the last month from a project in progress...
4th January 2011

Got a pleasant email through this morning from '30 under 30 Women Photographers' sending me a link through to their website that showed me having been selected for their 2011 edition. Big thanks to them! Am intrigued by their choice of selection of my work, but its nice to see some of my earlier university stuff being appreciated as well as my new project! Go check it out (as well as 2010's which I spent the year admiring.)
27th December 2010

I am included on Lenscratch's online exhibition with the theme of 'Family' - which can be seen here. Lots of great images on there... just weird to see my work with the words 'London, UK' next to it. It's the start of a new chapter...
11th November 2010
Moved to London on Halloween so been busy getting my life in order and working on/continuing with new projects.
Couple of things have come up since I've been here. Firstly I made the finalist list for the 'art & photography' category in Creative Works 2011, which is run by Aesthetica Magazine. The photograph that made it was 'Who?' (first image from R.O.Y.G.B.I.V) and you'll be able to see it along with the other finalists from my category, fiction and poetry too in the Annual that comes out in December.
& also I was sent some questions a couple of months ago from Eye Magazine to do with the course I recently graduated from (Photographic Art at University of Wales, Newport). The article wrote about my university course is in the latest issue of the magazine - Autumn 2010 (77) - which is accompanied by a few pictures from graduates including 'What?' from R.O.Y.G.B.I.V & there's also a blog post on their website with some of the q&a's.
30th October 2010
A while ago Russian magazine F5 contacted me about showing my R.O.YG.B.I.V project and giving them 5 interesting facts about myself. Gina from the magazine was kind enough to send me an image of the spread:
and I'll hopefully be receiving my copy soon.
Also you can check out Cut Click's photography special for a couple of images by myself (one which isn't on this website) and also a fellow graduate from my university David Taylor is tucked in there as well.
26th October 2010
Recently (couple of days ago) I attended UK Young Artists which was a great 4 day event where I got to see what artists all around the UK are up to. Saw some great visual art, music, performance, poets and dance - has really opened my eyes up to where my work can go on from here and other mediums to play with.
Very excited (and shocked) that I was one of thirteen chosen to go to Morocco. Something great to look forward to later next year and you can check out my work in Derby until the 31st at Déda along with all the other artists.
8th October 2010
From the 21st to 31st October my series 'Reality of Youth Going Backwards in Vain' (all 7 pictures) will be shown at Déda in Derby as part of UK Young Artists. Around 75 artists will be exhibiting and performing around the city. I'm there for a few days with the other artists to participate in events together which I'm looking forward to.
Also I found out today that I received an honorable mention in the The Nadar Award for Students for 'Why?' from ROYGBIV so thanks to them for that!
1st October 2010
Uploaded 'Making A Difference' photographs. They can be found under 'Selected Other Work' or: by clicking here. You can see the photographs in person at the Washington Gallery, Penarth until the 20th October. Big thanks to Carolyn Merrifield for inviting me to be involved with her project.
23rd September 2010
Edited the site a bit today. Made it that all the work is horizontal scroll. Was going to do that when I originally made the site but wasn't. However I think the images take ages to load when you click on them so seemed like the best option.
A couple of opportunities have arisen for me, but I'll write about them or put them on my exhibition&publication page once the event is closer and the other has happened.
Will be uploading a couple of new projects within the next few weeks.
7th September 2010
My copy of Photo+ arrived today. Its a beautiful magazine with lots of great work so I feel privileged to be included in the current issue! (terrible pictures of the magazine but you get the jist.)
Also going to Liverpool/Manchester tomorrow for a couple of days to go see the New Pornographers (great band!) with my Jazz Cakes cronies. They're working on a new project called 100 Postcards so check that out to get involved!
2nd September 2010
Picture of my work in [sixteen] at the Old Library, Cardiff which has since finished.
'Why?' won second place at Didsburys Art Festival's open photography competition so will be showing there from 25th September for a week at Didsbury Library.
& the Birmingham Zine Festival Postcard: Mail Art Exhibition opens today (which I'm part of.) That's at the Framers Gallery at the Custard Factory, Birmingham during September. Private view is tomorrow from 7pm.
18th August 2010
Updating work news: Uploaded four instax polaroids today from the last couple of weeks.
One of my new projects is well underway which is exciting and hoping it will be complete within a month or two (working title: One is Not Like The Other.) Also looking forward to uploading my photographs from 'Making A Difference' to the site as once the show is up I can reveal them.
Also was interviewed about my ROYGBIV project by Photo+ Magazine (photography zine in Korea) so excited for that to come out in September/October though I'm guessing I won't be able to read it as my Korean translation skills are severely lacking. Though will probably post the questions and answers on my blog.
7th August 2010
Exhibition with Carolyn Merrifield at Washington Gallery, Penarth. Starting working with Carolyn in March whilst doing my last year at uni. Together we went and met people who had made a difference to Wales, whilst I photographed them and she later painted them from the images. Those we visited included Rhodri Morgan, Stifyn Parri, Saleem Kidwai OBE, Judith Hall & Jane Davidson AM.
Opening is on 1st October between 7-9pm or check it out between 28th September and 20th October!
Also I have also been selected to show in The Big Fuss' exhibit [Sixteen] at the Old Library in Cardiff. Work goes up this week and show starts on Saturday 14th and ends on the 29th which is a Sunday. Facebook event.
Today I finished my contribution for the Birmingham Zine Festival's Mail Art Exhibition. For my postcard I made a photographic collage - first one I've ever made but quite want to make others now. Check the festival out if you can!
& Booooooom blogged five of my photos this week which was awesome! Hi if you're visiting from there.
22d July 2010
Added a few new pictures to site in: Instax Polaroids, Portraiture & Sarah Williams.
Currently working on two new projects which both look at the theme of identity - hopefully one will be strong enough for the Guernsey Photography Festival commission.
Also check out a very short film (little over a minute) that Sarah Williams did a couple of weeks ago. First time I've ever shot video but maybe it will be something that I can explore more in the future: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUBK8ucvjRU. (Check out her animations whilst you're there too!)
AND its the Foto8 Summer Show tomorrow. So tripping to London early to see some shows - Wolfgang Tillmans, Sally Mann & Camille Silvy I'm thinking (also 'Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera' if my wallet and watch allow me to).
15th July 2010
Present by Photo Art 2010 at Newport
13th July 2010
Been away for Les Rencontres d'Arles 2010. Saw some really great work including part of the European Polaroid Collection, León Ferrari and Jean Francois Lecourt as part of the Shoot! Existential Photography exhibit. Looking forward to going again next year.
I have 'Why?' from Reality of Youth Going Backwards in Vain showing at the Foto8 Summer Show which opens on 26th July at the HOST Gallery in London. A few of my friends from documentary photography as well are also showing work as well as other names that I recognise which means the opening show should be good fun!
30th June 2010
Come along to my course's book launch tonight! My Reality of Youth Going Backwards in Vain work is in there along with loads of other awesome work from my fellow students on photo art.
