Senior Lecturer: Photography
T: 87 6628
I am a Senior Lecturer in Photography at York St John University. I am a photographic artist and researcher whose practice has been based on interdisciplinary collaborations with healthcare institutions. Between 2002 and 2013 I developed a series of projects with Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust and the MBBS Honours Medicine and Surgery of Newcastle University (one of the most highly regarded medical degrees in the UK). For over a decade my research activities have positioned the narrative properties of fine art photography within a diverse range of scientific and pedagogical contexts. My research profile includes exhibitions set within various hospital sites (for example, The Northern Surgery Skills Institute at Hexham General Hospital and The Royal College of Physicians in London). I have received research awards by The Arts and Humanities Research Council, The Arts Council England and most notably, The Combined Royal Photographic Society and Royal Medical Colleges Medal in 2011.
