About the Book
The Border Years is a selection of short interviews I conducted with London teenagers in 2009. I was interested to learn how experiences may have influenced their personal geography of the town they grow up in. While the experiences are often random the effect can often be life changing, funny or even everyday.
After hearing the experiences I visited the location described and made photos of what I found while thinking about the young persons account of what had happened there.
I work as a professional photographer and receive commissions from newspapers and magazines mainly in the UK but also Europe and USA. I also shoot for NGO's and commercial clients. I completed my Masters at University of the Arts London 2010. In 2014 and 2015 I delivered my Mobile Citizens project in both London and Bristol.
