I am a Photographer, and Community Artist . The digitally produced book is the greatest tool available for the community artist and activist,small runs of the highest quality photo-book make it possible to show the world what happens in our locality, giving voice through art to those who would be overlooked . I started, working with Theater Workshop in Stratford E15 with Joan Littlewood. Since then I have worked with community groups and exhibited my work in galleries in the UK and Europe. Working with poets and sculptors I have made books, exhibitions and multimedia within communitarian and with other artists explored the overlooked culture of the ordinary.
