About the Book
Creating a book based on this website, where I've examined why I do what I do, felt like a natural next step. Street photography for me is not purely about the final image. The act of taking them is an expression of my feelings about the city and how we conduct ourselves on its streets. I've reflected that in a layout with a variety of picture size and crop, some of my own text and other visual ideas.
"Portrait of a Street Photographer" is more an impression than a documentary. It's not a life story, just a snapshot.
I've practised street photography in London and, occasionally, Paris, Tokyo & New York since the 80s. I enjoy discussing, showing and writing about my work. My photographs are in the collections of the Royal Photographic Society and the Bibliothèque Nationale and my work has been selected for the Museum of London's survey of London street photography. My latest work is the Ambiguous Book Project, a collaboration between photographers from around the world, now published on Blurb! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
