I like the ordinary, to celebrate the ‘what is’.
Because I am a visual narrator. My whole life has been all about videos, films and photographs.
Actually I lie. I studied music and though I can play a fair tune on the piano and classical guitar I decided that, that wasn’t for me.
So I became a documentary film maker for nearly 2 decades where I produced, scripted, photographed and directed TV programs to short documentary films. I particularly enjoyed covering children’s and women’s rights as well as social, environmental, and developmental issues in Asia.
I then had children.
Motherhood brought many changes and I now use photography to tell stories.
Stories about people, places and moments.
Stories that matter.
Stories that linger.
Stories that say what words can’t.
This is a sample of some of my work since 2012.
