I am a visual anthropologist and ethnographic filmmaker based in South Wales. A recent graduate from the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester, my projects thus far have aimed to explore people's relationship with place; how notions of place are constructed, experienced and how they shape one's sense of self. My interest in documentary extends from a background in the social sciences; prior to switching to anthropology I received a BA in Politics and Sociology also from the University of Manchester. I believe that documentary film, photography and sound have a unique capability of evoking story and experience in ways that go beyond the written word.
