The Financial Times asked me to document a day in my life for a series called The Millennials. The article can be viewed online (might be behind a paywall) and in the Life and Arts section of today’s paper. Here are some images from my day.
My work is included in a new book, Female Photographers Now, a compendium of artists featured on Firecracker, which is awesome. The book will be launched at TJ Boulting gallery in London on the 30th of August. Many thanks to Fiona Rogers and Max Houghton for putting the publication together.
A selection of images from the book are featured on the Firecracker website throughout August.
It is published by Thames & Hudson and available here on their website.
I’m pleased to be taking part in a forthcoming exhibition in the Gallery of Photography in Dublin, Engage. The exhibition will include images from Rural Fluorescent, alongside work from Aisling McCoy, Alberto Maserin, Andrew Rankin, Denis O’Shea, Jan McCullough and Ruby Wallis.
ENGAGE is a new collaboration between Belfast Exposed Futures programme and Gallery of Photography. It highlights both organisations’ sustained support for photographic artists living and working across the island of Ireland. The work by the seven selected artists reflects the vitality of the Irish contemporary photography scene. Each distinctive body of work is the result of a long term, sustained process of engagement by the artist with their chosen themes.
To launch the exhibition, I’ll be participating in a panel discussion at 5pm on Thursday 22nd of June, followed by the opening reception at 6pm. The exhibition will run until the 13th of August in the Gallery of Photography, Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin.

Thanks to Zoe Hamill and John MacDougall for including my work in the third issue of the collaborative series of zines and exhibitions, Milk Shots. Some images of the zine below.
Milk Shots is a collaborative zine showcasing photographers from Belfast Photo Factory and The Forgotten Collective alongside partner photographers from outside the collectives’ networks.
It aims to create ties between collectives as well as the selected photographers and their chosen contemporaries, creating a chain of new artistic connections for the audience.
