I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1991. I graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in photography in 2013, and have since been based in between London and Cape Town.

I see my upbringing and experience in post-apartheid South Africa as a catalyst for the direction of my practice. Growing up and working in South Africa, my identity as a white female photographer largely implicates my position in society, often underlying the interaction with my subjects, this is something I am constantly trying to examine and appreciate.

The politics of discrimination and inequality associated with race and gender in society is a constant theme in my work. Using photography as a tool to negotiate my relationship to my subjects and the people around me, I aim to challenge the traditionally dominant narratives that characterizes 'western' or 'modern' representations and ideals of beauty and success.
