I am a photographer born in Yorkshire, England. Mesmerized by humans, I began taking photos in early 2000’s assisting some great photographers in London.
In 2008 I left the UK to travel to Australia, I arrived not knowing anyone. As luck would have it I met an incredible community of artists, musicians and performers. This chance encounter led to my first major body of photographic work titled “This City Speaks To Me”. For three years I documented the lives of those that inspired me in Melbourne, taking portraits in a makeshift studio with a large format camera and some of the last Polaroid Type 55 film I could find. The State Library of Victoria recognized the project as a prominent documentation of sub-cultures within Melbourne’s underground, they purchased the entire body of work in 2011 the collection of work now lives in their archives.
I continue working on projects throughout Australia and the world and remain fascinated by humans of all walks of life.
