documentary photography project
about women working in the uk comedy scene.

During this project I wanted to
understand how humour had been
used as a tool to unify and liberate
women within a predominantly
male-dominated industry.

To do this, I interviewed and photographed
four female stand-up comedians working in
the UK. From their stories, I discovered
how powerful stand-up comedy had been
in each of their lives, both as a point of
expression and rebellion.

expressing the sexual connotation of
sex text messages that I collected from
students at the royal college of art.

Flowers carry with them, feelings of
sexuality, love, life and death.

I wanted to experiment with
the different ways of visualizing
these emotions by manipulating
colour and light to reflect
various moods and tones.

it relates to cultural identity

While designing this book,
I was most interested in how
image and type could potentially interact.

I approached this book considering
how I could break the conventions
of traditional image and type setting
while simultaneously expressing the
socio-political themes in the work.

This book, is a visual narrative of
my experience in a country where
the traces of its colonial past are
hard to escape.

set alongside the photographs,
there are excerpts from a 1963
copy of Life Magazine recounting
moments from the war. On each page,
there is a timeline set between
three dates – the date of the Vietnam War,
followed by my date of birth, ending
with the date of entry into Vietnam.

The timeline set alongside 35mm
black and white photographs,
is meant to emphasise the significance of
time. Using black and white 35mm film
makes the timeline of the photographs
unclear, which points to the nebulous
qualities of history itself.
