I photograph and write on community life, social health and education and serve as a social planning consultant to public sector and non-government agencies in South Australia, Bangladesh and India. Upon completing a social planning project (2006) in southeastern Bangladesh I established the Healthy Communities Foundation Inc. in partnership with DORP (Development Organisation of the Rural Poor). The Foundation supports women and children with schooling and primary health care.
I am an executive board member of the International Visual Sociology Association and reviewer for the World Health Organisation Bulletin, Visual Studies and Current Sociology.
We have unique skills and interests, when brought together promise a very exciting project. Amy is a skilled artist with a wonderful eye for interesting objects and sourcing them from the most unlikely places. I have a background in community planning, women’s health and education, and a love of textiles, travelling and photography; this seems to be the perfect way to bring all these together.
