She also curated Photo Reference: Photographic Image in Contemporary Japanese Art Practices (2012) and is co-programming a section ‘Archiving on the Line: Photography, Collecting and the Web’ for Either/And, a major project developed for the initial stage of The National Media Museum’s new web page Ph – The Postgraduate Photography Research Network.
