 documentary film and photography

I have spent the last few years documenting the refugee crisis producing work for the Refugee Council, Channel 4 News, Ai Weiwei, the BBC and UNHCR.

I am working with musician Sophia Brous on the project, Lullaby Movement and am currently exhibiting photographs I took in Lesbos of the refugee crisis, at the National Portrait Gallery in the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize.

I have just began a photographic project for UNHCR documenting the resettlement of refugees in the UK and am creating a VR project: PARWAZ in collaboration with two Afghan brothers who made it to the UK after nearly suffocating in the back of a refrigerated lorry.
