1_2U8I7QPB1YlV0nLEMEfA6A

In May 2018 I was asked to shoot The Bartlett School of Architecture’s one-day symposium exploring climate change and its impact on cities across the globe. The day was packed with range of speakers from multiple disciplines and featured a mix of panel sessions and key note addresses. Some of the images also appear in a write-up of the symposium by Paul Dobraszczyk.

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of capturing another UCL Urban Laboratory event, David Olusoga’s Cities Imaginaries lecture on how Britain’s cities were born with a ‘housing problem’ already hard-wired into them. Here is a link to the gallery.

Student-led conference report and photos – ‘(Im)mobility: Dialectics of Movement, Power and Resistance’

As part of my PhD I recently co-organised a student-led conference funded by the London Arts and Humanities Partnership and hosted by the London School of Economics PhD Academy.  A write-up of the conference, co-authored by Sara De Martin of King’s Classics Department, can be found below. An album of my images from the conference are available on the LAHP website.

A selection of my shots from the LAHP Annual Research day in May of this year in the strategically located Southbank Centre terrace rooms are viewable at this link.  The theme of the day was ‘Rhetoric and Rights’, and we were particularly pleased to receive a keynote from Christopher Campbell, the literary manager of the Royal Court Theatre.

Engaged Urbanism: Cities and Methodologies launch at the Free Word Centre

Another ‘catch up’ post from a project late last year.  This time it’s the photos from the UCL Urban Lab ‘Engaged Urbanism’ book launch at the Free Word Centre, Farringdon.  It was great to see old colleagues and peers from my Urban Studies MSc and to capture the book contributors in a space made for critical thinking. The full stream of photos is available here on Twitter.  And you can check out what the Urban Lab and Free Word Centre are about here and here.
