  • Black Geographies
  • Visual Methods
  • Urban Change
  • Postcolonial Theory

Nathaniel’s research focuses on centering and framing everyday Black experiences via the utilisation of collaborative photographic practices. He is also committed to making portraits with places as a means of intervening in their representations. Combining his photography with human geography research techniques such as the use of photo-elicitation interviews, his research is advanced with people and places as opposed to working on people and places.
