Sociologist turned photojournalist, capturing the true moments in life is what my photography is all about....

Having completed my degree, I was curious to see if the text book theories applied to the real world... So I took to the road, travelling to far flung shores, until a boating accident left my spine so damaged, doctors feared I may never walk again. It was during the years of rehabilitation, that I picked up a camera for the first time and enrolled in a black and white photography course. Desperate for a solution to the chronic pain and eager to fill the void, I headed to the African sun, armed with a Canon Eos 5 and a huge bag of film...

The images I captured during a stay on a tobacco farm in Zimbabwe during the land invasions of 2000, formed my first exhibition at the Zimbabwe High Commission in London. Tipped as a ‘Shooting Star’ by the British Journal of Photography, I have since worked with international humanitarian organisations such as WaterAid, CARE, and Médecins Sans Frontières; my images bringing awareness to major social issues as well as gracing the covers of international newspapers, books and magazines.  My photos and video from ‘To the Beat of the Desert’, a film documentary with the Touareg tribe in the deserts of Mali, led to the ‘Secrets of the Sahara’ displayed at the prestigious British Museum in 2005.

Bouncing between fine art and editorial, my Moroccan portraits gathered after five years of living in Marrakech, were selected by the French interior designer Jacques Garcia, to line the walls of La Mamounia following the iconic hotel’s renovation.

 

Becoming a mother to a beautiful daughter and relocating to France was a chance to refocus my life and career. I now split my time between photographic commissions, managing my PhotoArt business and running my Photo Experiences in Morocco.
