I was really happy to find out recently that I’m on the UK winners’ list for the Magenta Flash Forward Awards 2017, having been nominated for my ongoing project Parade. Flash Forward is an annual competition that showcases the work being created by the very best emerging photographers from Canada, the UK and the US. Every year, judges from each of the participating countries review the submitted work and identify the young people that they believe show promise as professional fine art or documentary photographers.
A preview exhibition of my project Parade was held at Studios Paris gallery in Montmartre from April 1st – 29th. Initially shown over the opening weekend of Le Mois de la Photo / Off festival, it was then selected to run for the full festival month. Parade was hosted by Alisa Gallery curation.
Parade has been featured in the 2015 edition of Photoworks annual, as a part of a brilliant feature by Max Houghton on women and wit in photography. Additionally, one of the images from the project (taken at Reclaim the Night in 2014) has been featured on the annual’s back cover. See the full project here.
