Students have had a tough time lately with Covid related disruptions. I was assigned by Microsoft to photograph “Eedi”, their AI online math tutoring service.
I spent the morning with Eithne and her family in Chorley, photographing Eithne using the math tutoring service both in the house and on the move in the car.
Newly enrolled students on Eedi are asked to take a dynamic quiz of 10 multiple choice diagnostic questions that the service uses to learn where students struggle most in math. This information allows the service to place students on a learning pathway to overcome those specific obstacles, or misconceptions.
The dynamic quiz is powered by AI developed by researchers at the Microsoft Research Lab in Cambridge, United Kingdom, who specialize in machine learning algorithms that help people make decisions.
The AI uses each answer to predict the probability the student will correctly answer each of thousands of other possible next questions and then weighs those probabilities to decide what question to ask next to pinpoint knowledge gaps.

JLL’s new 38,000 sq ft offices at 20 Water Street is featured in the current issue of Mix Interiors Magazine and on a number of websites including Office Snapshots and Costar. I was commissioned to photograph the space for the design and build team, Tetris.
The Canary Wharf workplace is JLL’s first office specifically designed to embrace a new way of hybrid working. JLL wanted a collaborative, sustainable, inclusive, health-led, tech-smart, energy-efficient and flexible workplace (targeting WELL Platinum, SKA Gold, BREEAM Excellent). The user experience is at the centre of the design, promoting wellness through biophilia incorporated in spaces both inside and outside of the offices. The project had to be an exemplar for both JLL's people and clients, while meeting JLL's targets for their Net Zero Carbon 2025 milestone.
The workplace benefits from AI powered sensors to monitor occupancy and air quality, as well as smart lockers and ultra-high-speed Wi-Fi complementing JLL’s own intelligent workplace app.
Sustainable elements include worktops made from recycled post-industrial plastic and tabletops within the demise made from recycled suit textiles.
The office features a variety of meeting and hybrid rooms, breakout areas, cafe and kitchens, huddle spaces, demo and innovation zones, standing rooms, study libraries, acoustic meeting pods, plus garden lounges and balconies.
JLL has employed a forward-thinking and holistic approach to the design of their new offices, with innovation and employee wellbeing at its heart.

I am honoured to be included in the film celebrating The Phillips Collection centennial year. The video is a round-up of their exhibitions, new commissions and parties featuring the work of Pablo Picasso, Daniel Canogar and Marta Perez Garcia.
My “Portraits of Resilience” series that share the stories of survivors of torture is being exhibited at the Phillips Collection @ARC till the end of the month. The exhibition is held in collaboration with the artist, the survivors, and Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition (TASSC). The exhibition is on view from April 27 to July 29, 2022.
Portraits of Resilience features photographs by Jonathan Banks that share the stories of survivors of torture from around the world. The work is being exhibited in collaboration with Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition (TASSC) at the Phillips Collection (Phillips@THEARC) till the end of July 2022.
Survivors are the strongest and most effective voice in the campaign to abolish torture.
Not all survivors want to be recognised for fear of repercussions to their friends and family. As such, each survivor selected a photograph that was significant to them. The photograph was then projected over the individual, sometimes obscuring their identity if anonymity was requested.
“Engaging the public through art is the focus of The Phillips Collection’s work at THEARC,” notes Director of Community Engagement Nehemiah Dixon III. “We hope that this exhibition leads to deeper conversations about the refugee crisis, and the role that race, national origin, and class play in impacting who we extend empathy and humanity to and how.”
