About me.

I’m a Melbourne-based photographic artist whose work questions the transformation of space and our relationship with the environment. I have participated in artist residency programs at Lethbridge University, Alberta, Canada, and the Centre for Art and Architecture, Kanazawa, Japan, with additional research trips to China, Thailand, Alaska and the Arctic.

In addition to my exhibiting career, I have designed and released several artist books, working with publishers such as the Velvet Cell (2017) and Perimeter Editions (2018). My books have been exhibited at Art Book fairs including Paris Photo LA, Off-print Paris, Off-print London, Unseen Amsterdam, New York, Tokyo, Beijing, UAE, Melbourne, Sydney and have been shortlisted for the NGV Cornish Family Prize for Art and Design Publishing 2019, Libris Art-book of the year 2016, and Australian photo-book of the year 2016.

My work features in collections globally, including the V&A Museum National Art Library (London), New York Public Library, Printed Matter Inc (New York), Sharjah Art Foundation, National Library of Australia, NGV Shaw Research Library, the National Art Gallery of Canada Library, and Gippsland Art Gallery.

On the educational based side of my practice I am currently enrolled in the Master of Communication Design course at RMIT where my focus is Publication Design. In addition to my own practice I'm a Mentor for the Masters of Photography Program at PSC Melbourne and work with the CCP on projects relating to photographic research and book design.

In July 2020 I founded acb press, a multidisciplinary practice centred around the photo book.
