WELCOME

Welcome!

I am a Franco- British photographer/writer/multimedia artist, based in Cornwall, UK.

After over 30 years as a successful actress and theatrical producer, I embarked on an MFA in Creative Writing, followed by an MA in Documentary photography at LCC, from which I graduated with Hons, in 2019.

Since then, I have been published by the Guardian as a journalist and a photographer.

I was awarded the ‘The Photographer’s Gallery’ photography prize, given by Brett Rogers OBE, for my photographic investigation into Colonia Dignidad, a German sect in Chile, which is now published as a Special Edition of 50 numbered and signed hardback books, by Blue Orange Press to mark the 50th anniversary of the Pinochet military coup.
You can view some of the work by clicking on the menu bar and select ‘Under Dark Roots/ Colonia Dignidad’.

In 2021, the Anne Clergue Galerie held an exhibition of my work on the US photographer and diarist Peter Beard, in Arles, France during the Rencontres d’Arles. One of these portraits was chosen for the cover of his biography, by Graham Boynton, published by St Martin’s Press on 11th October 2022.

I work with analog cameras for my private work, but can use Digital if required for any editorial commissions.

My joy is making prints in my studio/ darkroom at Studio 111, Krowji,
Redruth,
Cornwall.
