Professional membership

I am a member of Ph: The Photography Research Network since 2012.


My research explores the importance of photography as spatial representation and re-assess ways in which visual information relates to real experience. Using an experimental approach, I examine the mechanisms of site-specific installation in photography, drawing on contemporary architectural debates around relationships between image and space, as well as debates in fine art.
