I’ve always loved photography and have a passion for landscape, nature and the environment; I am also interested in the links between social justice and the natural world, as well as the ways in which our modern lives are connected to our surroundings. I encourage students to develop sustainable ways of working, including the economic, social and environmental aspects of their practice.
