My work is centred around the moving image and photography, and is inspired by anthropological working methods. My projects start with conversations and are typified by a strong commitment to people and the stories they tell. Each project develops through several years of research and field recordings, eventually resulting in an exhibition of video installations alongside connected text and photographic material.
