About the Book
I was content to let these pictures live together as a stack of prints. I'd just published two books and wanted to absorb the process and consequences of that. However at the end of last year I felt ready to think about how they could be presented on the printed page.
My original book "loved; life; London" follows the traditional approach of a monograph: same-size images sequentially presented as they'd appear on a white gallery wall. The second, "Portrait of a Street Photographer", is an attempt to put the photographs into the context of why they were made. To reflect the street experience different layouts are used to give the book a rhythm and dissonance. My new book "the distance between us", develops that approach and deliberately presents the images in a fractured way. It's not a printing error!
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 email@example.com
