Fotofest International Art Fair
With the assistance of an AN Travel bursary I was able to meet with museum curators and gallerists at this year's Fotofest International
Taking place only once every other year, this festival features
multiple exhibitions across Houston and the surrounding area and is one
of the oldest running and most respected Photo Biennials in the world.
Funding for The Parlour
Accompanying my new Madonna Lactans work, will be a website dedicated to discussions on and around breastfeeding, motherhood and time.

Photographs: in Celebration of Britain
Christie’s London Photographs department celebrates Britain in all its
forms and guises: from British photographers and sitters to scenes of
British life. On 15 October, Christie’s will offer works depicting
famous British faces and places of the 20th
estimates ranging from £400 to £35,000. Offering collectors the
opportunity to acquire affordable works with exceptional provenance, the
sale will feature over 140 lots. The sale will explore the history of
the medium; from vintage black and white to contemporary photography,
via fashion and the natural world.
Press for The Instant Garden
"In 1932, the Leica 35mm helped Henri Cartier-Bresson invent the
‘decisive moment’. In 2010, digital manipulation has helped persuade
Lisa Creagh that we’re entering a new phase. “Digital technology is
changing photography,” she says. “There’s a very modernist aesthetic of
the instant moment, and that’s defined photography for the last 80
years. But I think pattern is very relevant in digital photography. It’s
more about repetition and a series of endless cycles, something being
the same but repeated over and over. A new language is evolving and
that’s what I want to explore."
