This shot, 'Anglia Square' was recently short listed for the Royal Academies Eyewitness competition and won the monthly Print Space competition (November 2011) and will appear in this years SoShowMe exhibition.
For the last 18 months together with with people on or far beyond the outskirts of my local Market Towns community I have been recording through collaborative environmental portraiture, audio and video interviews coupled with straight documentary shoots their life stories and memories, musings, hopes and struggles.
I do this with a passion and belief that the photographs we can make have a weight and longevity beyond our time here, have an ability to communicate a story long after the characters have departed, they are time capsules awaiting discovery.
These are moments of daily endurance that in a generation will have passed forever.
I work as a full time Carer in my families home and at the end of the week there is no budget for any photographic work.
Portraits from the Market Town series are multi award winning and have been published in print & book format worldwide. Market Town has no end date, it's a project I will work on forever, constantly updating how I present the stories via essays, interviews, articles, stories, portraits, mixed media exhibitions and a series of books.
