I am interested in architecture, especially where buildings have developed organically, without official planning; in how individuals and communities shape their surroundings and vice versa.

Since 2006 I have been working on photographic and video projects about the effects of colonialism and neo-colonialism in the Caribbean, especially in Jamaica.
