I want to produce a large-scale exhibition all around Camden showcasing the power of the community through faces and stories.

New stretch target

Produce more exhibits and display them over a wider area to increase overall impact of the project.


Isolating Together aims to showcase the faces and stories of 70 strangers who came together to support their community during lockdown.

In response to the pandemic, I initiated the Kentish Town Mutual Aid group to support those who were isolating. Through it I met people who reached out to their community, both to help out and ask for support; Isolating Together was born out of these interactions.

My vision is to have these faces and stories transform into an outdoor, public exhibition in locations such as local businesses, vacant shop fronts, billboards, public libraries and community spaces all over Camden to remind people that they are not alone.

Local residents and visitors will be able to walk through the neighbourhood; viewing the exhibits and reading the stories of each person in this celebration of community spirit in the Camden area.

Isolating Together is supported by Camden Council, with spaces secured in St Pancras Station and on Kentish Town Road.

I am a photographer and graphic designer focused on shining a person centred spotlight on social change by amplifying hidden & lesser-seen perspectives.
