A seasoned scuba diver, Cherie studied a BA in Marine and Natural History Photography, but is just as adept above the water, with a passion for documentary and conservation photography.
In 2017, she spent a month in Myanmar, during a period of wide-scale human rights abuses by the Myanmar’s military against Rohingya Muslims – which lead to mass displacement of refugees, and accusations of ethnic cleansing and genocide. Cherie interviewed and photographed citizens on both sides of the divide, sharing their accounts across multiple media platforms.
Cherie has since worked internationally as a freelance underwater photographer, collaborating with Greenpeace, Oceanographic magazine, and Surfers against Sewage in campaigns against global ocean degradation. Her recent work has been featured by PADI, Wild Film Festival, and the Tate Modern.
