Through photography, I have discovered a medium that I can use to record and reflect my environment as I find it. In my studies I focused mostly on displaying my own environment with regards to the variety of different environments Britain offers depending on what economic and social bracket you fall into, a topic I have always found to be fascinating. Photography has been both a creative and scientific medium that has allowed me to explore art differently, and to display my experience of British society in a transparent way. A photograph is a way of translating light into a visual message: a way of communicating in a manner that words cannot, for this reason, photographs feel like truth. This is why I find it such a powerful medium to display social environments, because to see is to understand.
