A Walk with The Waste Land, Margate Bookie Festival (19th August 2017)

My 'Fortune-telling/Re-telling' (2007) video will be screened at Dreamland in Margate as part of an artist walk led by Elspeth Penfold for this year's Margate Bookie festival. This work from the 'Waste Land' project will be included in the forthcoming group exhibition 'A Journey with the Waste Land' which opens in January 2018 at the Turner Contemporary.

Family Ties Network featured in Exposure journal, Spring 2017 issue


The Family Ties Network is profiled in the latest issue of the 'Exposure' journal, published by Society for Photographic Education in the USA. I have been part of this research group since its formation after the 'Recollection and Representation' conference I organised at Senate House, University of London in 2012. This article features my 'Letters Home' project along with recent work by fellow co-ordinators Suze Adams, Nicky Bird, Jacqueline Butler, Lizzie Thynne and Rosy Martin.

'Global Photographies: Memory, History, Archives' (November 2017)


I will have a chapter in 'Global Photographies', entitled, 'Re-imagining the Family Album through Literary Adaptation', which includes an analysis of the 'PastPresent' (2005) photographs and the 'Fortune-telling/Re-telling' (2007) and 'The Deep Sea Swell' (2009) videos from the 'Waste Land' project.

This forthcoming edition by Transcript, edited by Sissy Helff and Stefanie Michels is a first collection to trace the relationship between history, photography and memory in a global perspective on three interrelated levels: firstly, in the artistic and cultural production of pictures, secondly, in the decoding of colonial and contemporary photography, and thirdly, in collecting photographs in picture archives dealing with colonial and anthropological photography. The contributions sketch the contested field of (post-)colonial photography and trace the manifold intertwinements between historical and contemporary photographs.
