My residency is focused on exploring the connections between my practice as a photographer and my work as a curator, simultaneously looking at Bank Street Arts’ role in lens culture and providing a space where photography can be explored and debated.
So far interventions have included an exhibition of Finding Lost Time, a international project I curate and contribute to; delivering Photo Finish, Bank Street Arts’ Sheffield Children’s Festival Project; I Am Karen: reinterpreted, a curated project featuring the photographs of Sabine Dundure and text contributions from other Bank Street Arts residents; and Surface Tension, a series of photographs of liminal spaces from 2007-2011.
Forthcoming events include The Big Society: snapshots of 21st Century Britain, a curated project running at Bank Street Arts from Nov to Jan featuring the photographs of Si Barber; and PushPull, a photography slideshow screenings evening run in collaboration with Jessa Fairbrother of S1 Artspace.

Longer-term I’m thinking about the Motorway Service Station as a Destination in its own Right, and childhood, moral panics, and the photographic image.
I’m always eager to hear about the work that photographers are engaged with and welcome proposals for projects than can be exhibited or undertaken at Bank Street Arts.
