Street Portraiture is my passion. This wonderful genre comes with endless opportunities to interact with people from all walks of life, ethnicity and backgrounds. Much of my photography happens around the Brick Lane area of East London. It's a place that holds a special place in my affections, several branches of my family have passed this way in the last 160 years.
2015. My photos of Dillan, the Singer Man were 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 story can be seen on my Blog page.
2016. My portrait of Abdel Tavares was one of the 57 photographs chosen to be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery as part of the prestigeous Taylor Wessing Portrait PrizeTaylor Wessing Portrait Prize. Used for the exhibition catalogue cover, postcards and an extensive poster campaign on the London Underground network, my image has been seen by tens of thousands of Londoners and visitors to the capital. The story of Abdel may be seen HERE.
2016. Tower Hamlets selected my portrait of Abdel for their 2016 BHM poster campaign and brochure cover.
