Allan O’Neill uses photography and moving image to explore the authenticity of the self. His practice explores identity as a performance of body and mind, scrutinising the psychological tensions within the socially-embedded individual.

Allan has a BA in Sociology and is due to commence the third level of a BA in Photography. He was born in the north of England to a Chinese mother and an English father. At the age of 54 he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). His work is grounded in his experiences of racial, class and neurodivergence identification.
