I am a British photographer based in Brighton. I work on my own projects and on commissioned assignments.

I document British life, its communities, practices, cultures and subcultures. I'm curious about mainstream culture as well as those that it excludes. I'm interested in what separates and what unites; what is forced upon us, what we force upon ourselves, and each other. I'm interested in those who have to strive for their status. This has led me so far to social class, youth culture, nightlife, masculinity, gender and sexuality. My techniques include candid unposed photographs in public places (street photography) and portraits.
