Researcher biography

I completed my PhD at University College London in 2012, and moved to Australia in 2015 to take up my position at UQ. I write widely on modern and contemporary art with a focus on documentary and artists' cinema. I am interested in the history of Australian photography and the role that lens-based images and visual culture have played in advancing social and environmental justice in Australia. My essays have appeared in Photography and Culture, Philosophy of Photography, Third Text, Afterall and Oxford Art Journal; I am the author of Documents of Utopia (Columbia University Press: 2015). I am keen to supervise students in all areas of Australian photography and visual culture.
