About the Book
A humourous look back to my childhood- endless days in glorious sunshine with space all around in the 70's and 80's.
Remembering all of the games, tricks, treats and accidents that befell us growing up in the Outer London suburbs.
Includes a revisit and photographs, old and new of the areas we frequented.
Born in Sussex in 1973, my parents moved us to the borders of South East London when I was 3 years old and I spent the formative years of my life trying to escape the suburban sprawl. With very little to do but stare at fields and walk the dog, many weekends were spent in London with friends, or staying over in Brighton enjoying the crisp sea air and lazy days on the beach. My love affair with Brighton continued and evolved when in 2002 I moved home and job to the city. Having worked in photography since the age of 17, I have a vast collection of old and unusual cameras which were used to create the photographic documentary +/-; a very personal work documenting a difficult period in my life. I also enjoy illustration and painting- and the next book in the pipeline promises to be a real challenge. I look forward to unveiling it later in the year...
