Girl Gaze: Journeys Through the Punjab and the Black Country premiered in Chandigarh at the Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi on Friday 9th March.
At the end of 2016 I found out that I had been selected as 1 of 4 photographers (2 Indian, Uzma Mohsin and Andrea Fernandes, 2 British, Jennifer Pattison and myself) to make projects about Punjabi women in the Black Country, UK and The Punjab, India, for Creative Black Country and Multistory, with support from the Delhi Photo Festival and the Nazar Foundation. They had received funding as part of UK/India 2017 from the British Council.
I started shooting the project in May 2017 and frequently made trips to the Black Country for long weekends, as well as visiting Jalandhar, India for a month in late 2017.
The first show of the 4 commissioned projects, including mine - You Will Live In This World As A Daughter, is next month in Chandigarh, India with the title of Girl Gaze: Journeys Through The Punjab & The Black Country, UK.
Afterwards the project will travel to Jalandhar. Other dates will be announced once they are confirmed.
I'm one of thirteen photographers working on All Change, which is a collaborative project documenting the areas around the London Underground's final stops.
I've been assigned Watford (the last stop on one of the westbound branches of the Metropolitan line).
The project is in a very early stage, but after doing some research about what kind of pictures take in Watford in instagram, I've found that the majority are Harry Potter related and to do with fitness. I like Harry Potter, but fitness, body image, self-esteem etc. is more interesting to me as my personal work looks a lot at representation, self-esteem, anxiety, self-confidence, body image and hiding & revealing.
I want to photograph women who live in Watford for the project, so if you would be interested in being photographed please get in touch.
I'd like to have an initial meeting first so I can tell you more, you can ask me any questions and we get to know each other. It's important to me that you feel comfortable.
Or if you know someone who you think would be interested, please pass this along.
(& thanks to Owen Harvey for organising this project and letting me be part of it)
I'm looking forward to having an exhibition with a couple of friends, Paloma Tendero and Silvia Gentili.
'Between Selves is an exhibition that features the work of three artists who question the concept of self in relation to their own experience. Their existence is confronted by exploring issues related to appearance, mental and physical health through self-portraiture.'
The private view is on Saturday 16th December from 6 to 9pm.
The address of the exhibition is: 44 Ashdown Crescent, London, NW5 4EA, which is between Kentish Town and Belsize Park.
The exhibition will be open from 12-5pm on Sunday 17th, from 1-7pm on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th, and on Wednesday 20th Paloma and Silvia will be running a self-portraiture workshop from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Ticket details are here. The exhibition can be viewed during the workshop.
Portrait Salon 2017 is now at Ravensbourne (Greenwich Peninsula, 6 Penrose Way, London, SE10 0EW) until December 7th.
The show is open to the public from 10am - 8pm on weekdays, and 10am - 6pm on Saturdays.
I have one photograph in the show (one of 3 pictures not shown in the photo typically).

The most recent issue of Source Photographic Review is about studying photography. Part of the issue looks back at its Graduate Photography Online annual showcase and a photographer has been chosen to represent each year from 2007 to 2016.
The selection was made from a list of 150 longlisted projects, which after scanning through and seeing a lot of familiar faces and names it was nice to find my BA project (Reality of Youth Going Backwards in Vain) included.
One of my images, Tiago & Me Wearing Skirts (28th July 2016), has been selected by Julie Cockburn for this year's Portrait Salon.
This year the exhibition is one night only on 16th November, outdoor in the grounds of Pub on the Park at London Fields, from 6.30-9pm.
The facebook event is here.
Exploration and Investigation by Photograd and Pop My Mind.
I have one picture in the show, which along with other photographers work was used as inspiration by other artists to make new work for the exhibition.
Venue: Subterranean Arts Gallery, Ipswich, IP1 1XF
Opening night: Thursday 26th October at 5:30pm - 7:30pm
General exhibition: 28th October - 18th November (10am - 5pm, closed on Sundays)
A couple of my images are part of Photography on a Postcard, where the postcards will be sold as part of a lottery and the money that is raised will go to The Hepatitis C Trust’s campaign to eliminate hepatitis C from the UK by the year 2030.
The pictures will be on show from the 12th October to 25th October at theprintspace.
The printspace is open from 9am to 7pm from Monday to Friday and closed at weekends.
