As an artist working with lens-based media I regularly undertake projects that challenge me both as a photographer and director.
My work is often influenced by concepts that include mapping, narration, exploration and science. Building on past experiences and a passion for the environment led me to set up Project Pressure, a UK-based charity that documents the world’s retreating glaciers. It combines science, art and education to depict the repercussions of climate change.
A significant body of my work is 'Hybrids', which was produced over a period of four years when I mapped peculiar hybrid cultures around the planet, such as Snow Polo in St. Moritz, Gay Rodeo in LA, Underwater Striptease in Chile and Underground Gardening in Tokyo.
I have been fortunate enough to receive grants from Arts Council England, Danish Arts Council, Getty Images, Hasselblad and The Queen of Denmark amongst others. In 1996 I was the youngest ever winner of the Scandinavian Kodak Gold Award, and in 2013 I was the recipient of the Sony World Photography Award in fashion.
I have lectured at Oxford University, The Photographers' Gallery and at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design. And I have been featured in the BBC, Wired, the Guardian, the New York Times, National Geographic, Vice, Creative Review and more.
