My photography is varied and ranges from landscape to documentary.

What first made me want a camera in my late 20s was the work of photojournalists like Don McCullin and Brian Harris (in the early Independent newspaper) and I also remember being impressed by shows by Chris Killip and Sebastaio Salgado. I like long term projects, one early one being on Speakers Corner, and in the last 10 years I’ve photographed a wide variety of historical re-enactment, perhaps the fruit of my history degree from Cambridge meeting my inner McCullin. In 2018-19 I started a project on Brexit.

Landscape has always been my other love. Maybe surprisingly, McCullin was an early favourite as I had his wonderful book of harsh black and white Somerset landscapes. Others would be Fay Godwin and William Neill, while more recently some of David Ward‘s ideas have been thought-provoking. Yet just as much inspiration comes from my interest in art history.
