Street & Urban Photography is what I love. It comes with endless opportunities to interact with our fellow human beings and to create images of never to be repeated events and moments. This site will develop as hopefully, will my photography. So, it's work-in-progress. For the stories behind the people I meet and the photos I take, have a look at my Blog page.
In the past two years, I have been very fortunate considering the sometimes random approach to my photography. In 2015, one of my photos of Dillane, the Singer Man was chosen by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to promote their Black History Month (BHM) programme. This resulted in an extensive street poster campaign, the image was also used for the brochure cover and futher images used within the brochure. The story can be seen on my Blog page. It doesn't get much better than that.
But it did. In 2016, I entered one of my portraits into the prestigeous Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize and it was one of the 57 photographs chosen to be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery from 17 November 2016. Used for the exhibition catalogue cover, postcards and an extensive poster campaign on the London Underground network, my image must have been seen by tens of thousands of Londoners and visitors to the capital. The story of Abdel may be seen HERE. I collaborated with Tower Hamlets again when they selected my portrait of Abdel for their 2016 BHM poster campaign and brochure cover.
In 2014 and 2015, I organised the RPS Documentary Photographer of the Year competition and staged a successful exhibition of the winning entries at The Rag Factory (follow link) in the heart of Brick Lane's Banglatown in November 2015. I give the occasional talk to photographic societies and clubs and in 2014, contributed to the publication costs of the book 'Spitalfields Nippers' featuring early 20th century photographs taken in the East End by Horace Warner
