03.11.14 - Greeting from Musèe Nicèphore Nièpce, France

Greetings from France,

I am currently on an artist residency at the Musèe Nicèphore Nièpce, France. I was announced as the winner of the BMW Artist in Residency Award 2014, during Recontres d'arles this summer. Thank you for your best wishes when I revealed I was shortlisted. I am sure all your crossed fingers helped.

During my time at the museum I am working on a new photographic series which searches for the truth behind Love at First Sight. I am drawing from literary and personal narratives from the people of Chalon-sur-Saône. Accompanying this material is an examination of key scientific studies analysing the phenomenon.

I will be presenting a small work-in-progress show within the BMW collection, Paris Photo, Grand Palais, 12th - 16th November. If you're heading to Paris Photo this year do pop along and have a look. If you are unable to make it, please put Arles 2015 in your diaries. During the festival I will be presenting a solo show and launching a book publication of the completed work. 

To glimpse into my life here at the museum; my research, sketchbook, shoots and adoption of French culture, you can view my weekly visual diaries posted on my facebook artist page
