I am a London-based documentary photographer. I am fascinated by people who, in one way or another, are trying to change the world. Recent subjects have included Malala Yousafzai and Davis Guggenheim (HE NAMED ME MALALA); THE POSH CLUB in Hackney, run by Duckie, where swanky senior citizens dress up to the nines and are royally entertained by outrageous cabaret; and Hatoon Kadi, the Saudi YouTuber, blasting edgy female oriented comedy to the Arab world, from a highrise in Sheffield. (HIGHRISE - NATIONAL FILM BOARD OF CANADA).
I am always interested in the tiny details that reveal people's relationship with the world; the small yet huge stories of the everyday. The couple who suddenly had to abandon their family home of 50 years, leaving behind a trail of personal effects (LORDSHIP PARK N16); the carefully preserved dresses marking life's milestones (KARIN); or the collection of NIGERIAN BUTTERFLIES & MOTHS captured by a wide eyed 19 year old from Tunbridge Wells, doing his National Service in the last days of the Empire.
My commissioned work is a mixture of production stills for film and TV as well as reportage and portraiture for editorial and events. I am an Associate Lecturer in Photography at LCC where I also studied for my MA.
