About the artwork
Untitled, Costanza, Via Appia Rome, 2018.
This image like many portraits of the long-term portrait project I am working on, Emotional Geography, I have left untitled; preferring people to interpret the work drawing from their own sentiments to person and place. The project is concerned with our emotional relation to and consequential affect on the environment around us.

IWD 2019 is about #balanceforbetter. What does this mean to you as a female photographer and as a human?
I was considering how to answer this, similar to last year's hashtag I'm not sure it really resonates with me. Summing up International Women's Day in a hashtag seems to have initiated by a corporate website that appears to attempt to capitalise on a day, which was formed from a social justice movement and the fight for equal rights for women. International Women's Day for me is a celebration of women worldwide and also a day of mourning for the continued injustices that women bear daily, a reminder that much work must be done.
Perhaps the UN's website is a better reference and for me sums up this year's theme more eloquently. 'Think equal, build smart, innovate for change'.
They share that the '2019 theme Think equal, build smart, innovate for change focuses on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.'
With regards to how this resonates with me as a documentary photographic artist who is a woman. Well it’s the need to push for higher representation and equal pay for women in the arts.
