About the artwork
My work explores broader social issues through the intimate stories of these strong & inspiring women.
About the artist
My photography often takes a critical view of social, political & cultural issues. Of a documentary & portrait nature my mostly intimate visual stories form part of larger bodies of work that together create a visual narrative - exploring our relationships to the wider community within cultural constructs & a changing environment.

IWD 2019 is about #balanceforbetter. What does this mean to you as a female photographer?
I’ve engaged a varied range of subjects over the years, in more recent times this has included ones of a female perspective such as Australian Muslim Women In Sport, The New Australians, Tokyo’s Oldest Grisha & Female Survivors of Violence in Australia. Upon reflection of this year’s theme ‘Balance For Better’, I think more diversity in storytelling on all platforms could be a most effective way to encourage inclusivity as we look to the future.
