Teaching Responsibilities:

Senior Lecturer in Photography


After moving from Leeds Metropolitan University where I was the programme leader for Photography and Digital Imaging and designed both BA and MA programmes to validation, I am now the programme leader for Bolton’s BA (Hons) Photography course. In this role my activities include programme development, timetabling and other key duties.

I am currently engaged in key projects such as examining artefacts based in several sources (Abbey House Museum, Leeds; the Kitchen Table project; and the Garage project) and writing about the location of artefacts as emotive images with a view to audience engagement and participation.

With a keen interest in documenting and exhibiting my photographic work, with themes including typologies and the de-familiarisation of objects and artefacts, I have recently exhibited at Leeds City Museum and am planning further exhibits in 2014 (negotiations with several sites ongoing).
