I chose to photograph the Cuckmere Haven in East Sussex before it is tragically lost to the world. The sea defences are not going to be kept maintained and eventually this area will become salt marshes and mud flats.
I was educated at Brighton and Hove High School for Girls which is part of the Girls Day School Trust. Having spent 2 years at Brighton and Hove City College I successfully achieved a BTEC National Diploma in Photography and left with 2 Distinctions and a Merit. I graduated in 2011 with a BA (Hons) Degree in Photography from the University of East London. The image on the back cover of the Cuckmere Haven book was selected as one of the finalists for the SPA 2009 Exhibition and was chosen by a panel of judges as the overall winner in the Landscape and Interiors category. I was invited to hang it in the DegreeArt gallery in London and some of my images can now be found on the DegreeArt.com website. My favourite photographer of all time is Ansel Adams and I take inspiration from his work.
