BIO

I'm a 22 year old Photographer, who is currently based in Leicester. Throughout my three years at De Montfort University, I have been a keen portrait and fashion photographer. However, after my near fatal car crash which happened last year, I have been exploring the ideas of Phototherapy. By producing self-portraits, this has enabled me to move on from my traumatic experience.

Rebuilt:

16th January 2016; the day my life was put on hold. These images are from my self-portraiture series called Rebuilt. After a near fatal car crash, I broke my right humerus in 3 places and  was warned I might never fully recover. Relying on 24hour personal care, I felt useless and depressed. Now a year on and 4 plates of titanium and 9 screws later, I am rebuilt. This series is a reminder for me to never give up, I can survive anything.
