I am an awarded documentary and press photographer, multimedia journalist and participatory facilitator/educator based in London, UK. My work focuses on communities and individuals to address vital environmental, human rights, and health issues from a socio-cultural and political perspective.
I started taking photographs as an underground music and art fan when I was 15. Then, after a university research career, I became a street photographer. After a PhD in China Cultural Studies and a specialization in International Cooperation to Development, I was awarded the University of Bolton-BFSLU joint MA in International Multimedia Journalism (U.K./China, 2017).
