During 2017 I had two successful exhibitions and gave a talk as part of "Rewired", an event at the Royal Geographical Society in London. I helped raise several thousand pounds for neurological charities and was featured in newspapers, a magazine and local radio. I also got divorced and lost a lot of money to solicitors...

Street photography and printing and framing photographs for more exhibitions have been filling my days recently. I'm happy to say that the Movement for Hope exhibition in London was a great success. By a strange twist of fate the comedian Russell Brand came to the private view and seemed genuinely interested in my work - see... Continue Reading →

From years back, when I was still wearing the soles of my shoes out on street photo walks, I've found the idea of anonymising people and merging them into the urban landscape intriguing.

Until then, here are a few photos from my archives on the theme of "Moving" - These were taken with a Canon 6D and a Samsung EX1 compact,... Continue Reading →

Instead it was the sheer numbers of disabled people begging for spare... Continue Reading →

The beach was beautiful. As we relaxed, ordinary Venetians carried on their working lives. I like the similarities and the differences of these two pictures of... Continue Reading →
