This month I received the thrilling news of being awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund project grant to allow the London Alternative Photography Collective, which I currently co-direct, run a series of exciting events!
This April I have had the pleasure to do a series of artist talks at the Science Museum presenting my practice and the chlorophyll printing process. The talks have been very popular with an estimated audience of +200 attendants !
This March I was approached by The Auction Collective to show the Piece Mariah Idrissi at Menier Gallery and participate in an auction. I was interviewed by their curator Francesca Wilson (you can read the interview on this link), and I was invited to present my work to a selected group of collectors.
This February I have been working with BBC Four on a commission for the Victorian Sensations documentary which will be launched in May at BBC Four and at the Institute of Contemporary Arts. On this occasion, I demonstrated my practice as a specialist on Victorian photographic techniques and did an interview with Philippa Perry.
BackThen, a new media outlet that works as part of In the NOW - a platform with over 3.3 million followers- also came to the studio to do a short documentary focusing on my practice, which will be launched on early April.
2019 has started with a fantastic course at National Portrait Gallery, as well as a day lecture at University for the Creative Arts and the regular wet collodion courses in my studio!
