I am a visual artist and educator based in Manchester UK with a profound interest in domestic photography as a cultural artefact. Using methods of appropriation and intervention my work examines how we make and use the photograph as a culture. Funded by the Arts Council of England, my Ph.D. research reflects on Instagram as contemporary practice discussing its nostalgic origins and transformations. It demonstrates that visual culture is always active and in progress, negotiated through a complex temporal relationship which is observed in the present, refers to the past, yet faces the future
