Quarr Abbey is a catholic benedictine monastery, just off the south coast of England, on the Isle of Wight.

I have been working as a professional photographer for the past two years. Trained in the arts, I live between Paris and London. My work takes me across the world, seeking stories of new places to share with my audience. From these travels I bring back unique memories of the moments I capture in new places.

I look for moments that are quietly unique. Often an isolated thing or person in an environment that on first glance is ordinary but on second glance tells a subtle story. Light plays an essential part of how I see that story being told, creating a mood and provoking feeling in each image
