‘I’m a portrait and reportage photographer. I love to photograph moments and movement, the spontaneity of life and cross cultural boundaries. I am currently working on a project called ‘Diversity in Dance’ which aims to explore the photography of movement and dance across all ages and cultures. I’d like eventually to exhibit this work in schools, hopefully helping young people identify with the broad diversity of dancers and encourage more diversity in youth dance in Bristol. I’d like to meet you all and discuss the possibility of photographing you as a part of this project.’
