I have been facilitating workshops with cultural organisations, charities and universities since 2015. With a focus on documentary and street photography, we have used Augusto Boal's 'Theater of the Oppressed’ methods to share and transform personal experienecs of public life in the city into visual narratives. Together with paula roush, I have been developing ‘deep mapping’ approaches in the context of the Lower Lea Valley. Through photography, printmaking, drawing, writing, dialogue, and listening, ‘deep mapping’ offers learning from a place in a relational and embodied way, responding to the ecologies and communities within it, transforming colonial ways of seeing, and learning to sense landscape as a living organism. These methodes have been informed by Brett Bloom & Nuno Sacramento’s research; their writing proposes methods to decolonise our understanding of the places we inhabit and learn to respond to the ‘needs and desires’ of the earth, marginalised communities, devastated landscapes, urban, social, ecological and spiritual spaces.

‘Follow y/our river: a manual for deep mapping in the Lower Lea Valley,’ is a guide that paula roush and I created for the Photography program at London South Bank University. Students were invited to conduct fieldwork in the Lower Lea Valley using transdisciplinary approaches such as photographic, geographical, ecological, and experiential methods.
