2018

So, This Is Christmas - A small book of images made on two shoots, one in Manchester, the other in Huddersfield exploring the commerciality surrounding Christmas

The Northern Quarter - A coffee table book featuring 45 images made within Manchester's Northern Quarter and featuring the fifteen images from my ARPS panel (see below)

ARPS - Awarded an Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society in September for a panel of images of Manchester's Northern Quarter - the culmination of a project that started in April 2015

TWENTSIX FACIAL EXPRESSIONS - This small photobook was inspired by the small books of American artist, Ed Rusche. As the title suggests it features 26 street images of people with different expressions

TRANSPORTED - A book that was a long time in the making. In 2014 I visited Tasmania for the second time and during that trip spent a day at the Port Arthur Penal Colony now a World Heritage Site. The book marries monochrome images of Port Arthur with the stories of several convicts who spent time there and lived under the brutal penal system of the time.

Its All Behind Us - My first book of street photography for some time and the first with a specific theme - All images rely heavily on the backdrop within their composition

2017

AFTERMATH - This book is a very personal project. In March 2017, I visited Marysville and Lake Mountain in Victoria, Australia. Both were devastated in the Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria in February 2014. I found this visit a very moving experience and have tried to convey my emotions through the text and images reproduced in the pages of this small book.

HOLMFIRTH - A West Yorkshire Town - The images in this book capture the diversity of Holmfirth's high street through photographs of the shop fronts and portraits of some of the people who own or work in the shops. All the images were made between April 2016 and July 2017. Following the success of the initial edition of the book which sold out, I have subsequently published a luxury edition of the book. Both versions are available to view in my Blurb Bookshop.
