I am thrilled to have been invited by designjunction, the premier West End venue for The London Design Festival, to exhibit my photography of designers and design events, in a show entitled THE JOY OF DESIGN, from 18-22 September 2013, in the old Post Office Sorting Office on New Oxford Street.

There will be at least 40 pictures in this show which is a mixture of reportage and posed photographs. There is a mix of people who are already well known, and less-known or emerging names.
My photographs show designers passionately involved, engaged, expressing their personalities, happy in their work, never posed in a studio but always "on the job." As it happens, many pictures are very natural with smiles or spontaneous expressions and many do include the designers’ work. Hence the title, which has evolved from my original title of DESIGN PORTRAITS.
My show will celebrate the huge energy, enthusiasm, commitment and creativity of our best designers, not only from the UK but also internationally. It will reflect how designers give so much of themselves to their work.
