Research, Exhibitions and Screenings

My research is concerned with the ways in which contemporary documentary practice can be used to engage with localised social issues, and often explores themes of Place, Work, Identity and Socio-Politcal phenomena. I'm currently undertaking a PhD by practice at Manchester Metropolitan University. On this page you will find a selection of practice based research, links directing you towards published articles and a list of selected exhibitions and screenings.
