My work centers around using the photographic medium to explore contemporary scientific ideas and research. This in essence is an attempt to create something aesthetic and engaging out of what can be unrelatable and dry research. I hope to highlight issues within science and particularly medicine which are tragically unappreciated and underreported. The work shown comes from two different but related series; one explores the prevalence and importance of bacteria in the human body and how it's both vital for our existence but can also kill us. The other looks at our reliance as a society on medication and how years of consistent over-prescription of antibiotics has rendered increasing numbers of them ineffective by encouraging the growth of resistant superbacteria.
