About the Book
Roller Derby on Film, Photographs from the Flat Track is a collection of images documenting the re-emergence of Roller Derby in the United Kingdom, Europe and beyond.
Spanning the years 2010 to 2013 it includes photographs from the first ever Blood and Thunder Roller Derby World Cup, held in Toronto, Canada, between 1-4 December, 2011 and Track Queens, Battle Royal, the first WFTDA sanctioned tournament in Europe, 16-18 November, 2012 in Berlin.
I have been shooting Derby since 2008, in the UK, Europe and America. I shoot with a mix of digital and film, primarily using Canon cameras but also use Pentax film slrs and Zero Image pinhole cameras. I covered the first Roller Derby World Cup in Toronto, Canada in 2011 for Blood and Thunder magazine where I put up a miserable showing in leg wrestling Suzy Hotrod. In 2014 I covered the first Men's Roller Derby World Cup for Team England in Birmingham, England, and the second women's Roller Derby World Cup for England Roller Derby, in Dallas, Texas.
