How do I know if it chooses me?

This morning I’m flying to Ireland to speak to photography and fine art students at CIT Crawford College of Art and Design.

Compiling my presentation was surprisingly difficult this time as I didn’t realise how much work I accumulated over the years and a guest lecture can only cover a fraction.

It’s been 17 years since I accidentally saw an exhibition in Berlin that told me to be a photographer and my journey since has been far from plain sailing...

My biggest ambition for today is to say something to the students that would actually make a difference, something I wish someone said to me when I was starting out. So I will be talking about all the mistakes I made and the lessons I learnt...🙈😆
