Portable: Having studied graphic design at school, when and why did you start taking pictures too?

Alice Connew: I’d always been interested in photography; I grew up surrounded by it as my dad is a photographer so it almost felt normal to for me to start dabbling. After finishing my degree it was quite difficult to start pursuing a design career as I moved around a lot so taking photos became way of maintaining creativity amongst the chaos in my life, and it was an interesting way to document what was happening around me.
