ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I'm an artist at heart, or rather someone who would like to be one! I work in the international development sphere, which gives me plenty of opportunity to take photographs. My photography took off in 2016, whilst I was doing project work in Nigeria. I was able to capture images that truly reflected the countries I worked in, and not the stereotypical images that were peddled in the media. My style is mostly street and predominantly people too. I have a mix of my London life and fabulous people I meet in Africa. There’s something about capturing people in their environment that I really enjoy. It wasn’t easy to begin with and, it took me a while to be brave enough to move on closer to take the shot, as well as, being able to approach people and take their portraits. Fortunately, I had a lot of good advisers at hand!
