• Up West

    After I had shot the Underground images during the mid 1990′s, I set my sights on a project about London that was based on street level. For a few years I started a number of unconvincing stabs at this, but never really figured out exactly what would have worked, as London was too large a city to really do justice over a set of 60 or so pictures. Then in 2001, I realized the West End was usually my first port of call to take pictures, and the phrase ‘up west’ came to mind and a project was born. Over 12 years I wandered the busy shopping areas of Oxford Street and Covent Garden, drank in almost every pub in Soho, and stumbled across dozens of demonstrations, events, street parties and cultural festivals. Along with all the other usual comings and goings, I finally managed to put these pictures together into something I hope will make sense.

  • Happenstance

    Black and White Photographs 1990 - 2007

    Happenstance is a collection of my earliest street based work, shot mostly when I was studying Documentary Photography in Newport in the mid 1990’s. The subject matter varies from the Road Protesters in Leyton to Wall Street Bankers in New York and shows some obvious homages to my earlier influences such as Tony Ray-Jones and Garry Winogrand.

  • Underground

    Released simultaneously with ‘Happenstance’, ‘Underground’ is the product of my first series of pictures of my home city London. Inspired by Bruce Davidson’s epic New York Subway series, this was shot in colour with flash over a short but intensive three month period between 1994 and 1995.
