I’m currently available for commission
Birmingham Women’s & Children’s NHS Foundation
In June 2019 I was commissioned by Birmingham Women’s & Children’s NHS Foundation Trust
to produce a series of portraits of healthcare workers who identify as ‘diverse’, have issues surrounding inclusion or have serious but not life-threatening illnesses, to inspire hope among patients, especially on the children’s hospital wards.
When commissioned to create a portrait series of ‘Asian women’ in Birmingham I asked what does ‘Asian’ mean? South Asian, British Asian? I photographed a dozen women from all over Birmingham and South Asian, being sure to include Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, as most people’s perception of ‘Asian’, or South Asian, is limited to India, Pakistan and Punjab.
