A UK based photographer and writer, I found her through her series of images with words that both carried this nuance that engaged me. Was happy to see this carried over into the visual interview that she approached as a cohesive visual essay and you can see the resulting ambiguity in her responses. Her half revealed cat in response to question 1 and the literal yet subtle response to question 2 set the tone beautifully. Check her links below:
