Strangers Amongst Strangers
The advent of decent mobile phone photography came at no better time. Accelerated by the mass interaction of easily accessible internet, this medium of capturing images became convenient and almost documentary-like in the way that it documents our lives.

Her photos also create a visual commentary of the urban environment and the relationship people have with it.
