Thus, They Bloom (2015) is a collection of staged, large-format narratives, created with the intention of exploring the ways in which sentimentality as a theme, manifests itself within the modern age.

Building upon the intimacy of previous series’ such as Studies (2013), with the pathos and poetic aspects of the graduate series Weep Not by Day (2012), Thus, They Bloom presents itself as an intimate series of definitive moments within seemingly everyday lives, unlimited by age, sex or race.

Recurring themes such as relationships, artefacts and solitude lie at the core of the series, not without the presence of both emotional vulnerability and optimism.
