Street & Urban Photography is what I love. It comes with endless opportunities to interact with people from all walks of life, ethnicity and backgrounds.
In the last few years, I have been very fortunate considering my random approach to photography. In 2015, one of my photos of Dillan, 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 story can be seen on my Blog page.
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. 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. Some of the Testimonials received from visitors to the NPG exhibition 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.
Most of my photography happens around the Brick Lane area of East London and it's a place which holds a special place in my affections, several branches of my family have passed this way in the last 160 years. I give occasional talks to photographic societies and clubs.
