Part environmental activist, part aspiring stage, portrait and documentary photographer, I'm fascinated by people, what makes us 'tick', and how we relate to each other and the universe we inhabit.
I've been campaigning against corporate globalisation and for environmental and economic justice for some 25 years, mostly with Friends of the Earth International and Global Forest Coalition. I am also co-founder and a co-director of Critical Information Collective (which includes an environmental and social justice image library).
For me these two interests meet in world music festivals, which bring the very best of the world and its people together, in the most vibrant and life-affirming of global parties, where cultural diversity is shared and celebrated. I see these as the antithesis of neoliberal economics, which devastates and sterilises communities, cultures and the environment.
