I'm a British freelance photojournalist, based in Istanbul, Turkey. My personal work often focuses on the intersection of identity, migration, social and political actions, and the ramifications of those for individuals. My work often tries to stretch the narrow definition of photojournalism, using conceptual approaches to visualise and convey issues to the viewer. A vast chunk of my work has focused on issues connected with the theme and meaning of 'home' – the loss of home, the search for home, and the forming of a new home. Regularly covering feature stories and portrait assignments in Turkey, the Balkans, the Middle East, and Europe, for a range of international newspapers, magazines, and online news media. I'm a National Geographic Explorer, having receiving support for two projects from the Nat Geo Society since 2018. My first long-term project Kütmaan (started in 2010) tells the stories of LGBTI asylum seekers, refugees, and IDPs in and from the Middle East, forced to flee their countries and lives for reasons connected with their sexuality and/or gender identity. This work led to my latest ongoing body of personal work called Gayropa – a visual documentation on queer migration to Europe. Based in Istanbul, Turkey since early 2012, but traveling often. Began my career freelancing across South & Central Asia 2005-2010.
