I’ve spent most of the time since 1993 finding out what on earth a photographer is.
I was born in 1970 in Reading Berkshire and grew up in villages around there: spending my time riding and mending BMX bikes, playing guitar and plodding about the fields. I have lived in London since the end of 1989 and in 2008 moved to a village called Symondsbury just outside Bridport in West Dorset.
For me, photography remains a nice quick method of recording what I love about us; I believe people are good and this drives the decisions I make when photographing. I see my work as being in the tradition of documentary-photography-with-a-small-camera from the 1950s to about the 1970s. Loads of great work outside these dates of course but that’s where I’m coming from and what I see my work as a descendent of.
In 2009 the National Portrait Gallery in London acquired six of my portraits for their permanent collection.
I’ve worked as a contributor for NME, the Guardian, the Independent, the Times amongst countless other publications.
If I’m not studying photographers, studying the puzzle of what it is to be alive, writing songs or trying to earn a living, I’m doing what I’m most passionate about which is being with my family.
The definitive document.
