|Returning to London in March, I threw myself into a project about Free Party Rave culture, a subject close to my heart and my major project for MA Photojournalism at the University of Westminster, graduating with Distinction. Some of the work was published in Dazed and the Telegraph online. In November 2014, it’s 20 years since the Criminal Justice Bill made raves illegal, ‘Free to Party’ is due to be published in book form, showing how this important subculture has continued, regardless of being outlawed for so long. Available for syndication as a feature, contact me for further details (+44 7748 800276)Other notable moments in 2013 included; photographing the West Indies Cricket Team for sponsor Confident Group; updated website and licensable online archive; new representation by Mike Kemp’s In Pictures and music culture archive PYMCA. I’ve also added lots to my collections managed by Robert Harding and 4 Corners, did an assignment in Prague for BBC travel, got Lewes bonfires into GEO Saison, spoke on a panel at One World Media festival about Retomada (which they funded in 2012) and saw Retomada shortlisted for the Amnesty Media Awards.
2014 I’m based in Brazil, available for assignment throughout Latin America
First stop is Salvador de Bahia to shoot Afro-Brazilian Candomble for the religion project. Then Buenos Aires for National Geographic Traveller; the Street Child World Cup in Rio; after that further plans TBC.
The final, and possibly most significant piece of news is that as Gaia Media; Jonathan Perugia, myself and Toby Richards are about to start a two year contract for the United Nation’s – WSSCC / Global Sanitation Fund (GSF). The project will be documenting the implementation and auditing of WASH initiatives in 10 focus countries throughout 2014 and 2015.
It recently came to my attention there was a technical issue with my email hosting, so if you sent a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and didn’t receive a response – it’s because I didn’t receive it. My sincerest apologies, it has now been rectified.
