I've made a new short video called My Body Is My Body Is My Body Is My Body.
It's here, but is also on my video page - where you can read the accompanying hashtags, which tells you more about the making process.

I've also made a short video called Holding Hands / Holding Of Hands.
My Body... has a whispered soundtrack, whilst Holding Hands... involves me singing, which is awkward but a natural progression with my work that has seen me push myself further out of my comfort zone over the years. I feel that my current work chapter is a lot to do with learning to become more comfortable with my own words, both written and verbal.
Again you can watch the video here or on the video page - where you can read the accompanying hashtags, which tells you more about the making process.

Address: HIVE, 80-82 Church Street, Blackpool, FY1 1HP.

Opening times:
1st – 30th September – 11-4pm daily

August 2019 News
Images from my series Nice Hair, Shame About Your Face are currently being shown at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, UK as part of Open Source #10 until 31st August 2019.
I gave a talk about my work on Thursday 22nd August at 6pm.

Poem about my talk that I wrote for an Instagram post:
'Do you know I have a talk next week?
You can come along and hear me speak
About photography and things that I do
I’ll probably be mainly dressed in blue
It’s on Thursday 22nd of August
Tell your friends to attend if you must
It’s in Liverpool at a gallery called Open Eye
Say hello and have a pry
All August I also have work there on a screen
The title of the project is actually quite mean
6pm is the time of the talk
If you go to James Street station it's not far to walk
The show and talk are free to all
So hop along to Mann Island and we’ll have a ball!

The talk was an in conversation with Declan Connolly of Open Eye Gallery. Photo by Convenience Gallery.

Thanks to Sam Phasey for writing about my work for Open Eye Gallery's blog.

4 of my images from Nice Hair, Shame About Your Face are in the latest issue (VIII) of TILT, which is Open Eye's publication. Accompanying my 4 images is a hashtag explanation of the project and hashtags for 3 of the images.

Girl Gaze: Journeys Through The Punjab & The Black Country is now open at Blast! Photo Festival in the Black Country, United Kingdom. The festival opened on 24th May and closes on 29th June.

Girl Gaze includes projects by Uzma Mohsin, Andrea Fernandes, Jennifer Pattison and myself. The work was commissioned by Creative Black Country and Multistory with support from the Nazar Foundation with funding from the British Council’s Reimagine India (a cultural exchange programme investing in creative collaborations between art and cultural organisations in England and in India). Iona Fergusson has curated the exhibition again.

I first got an email about getting involved with the project at the end of 2016, and the show (which includes my series You Will Live In This World As A Daughter) was exhibited in India last year.

You can see Girl Gaze at British Muslim School, Lodge Road, West Bromwich, B70 8NX.

Asian Women & Cars: Road to Independence by Dawinder Bansal is at the same venue.

The festival programme for Blast! is available here.
