Upcoming talks, exhibitions, events:
In 2011, upon graduating from Manchester School of Art, I returned to Birmingham and set about initiating my first social commentary project: 'Sunny Intervals'.
This is a retrospective of my debut documentary portraiture project, which gave me the time and space to teach myself how to go about such a delicate process.
‘Sunny Intervals’ exhibition will continue until the 22nd of August, when a closing party will be hosted 6-8 pm, to celebrate the end of the show.
Limited edition prints will be available.
