I’m originally from London, and started doing street photography in 2012, during a 7 month stay in Lima, Peru, where I was teaching English. People have always interested me. I want to take photos that make people smile, or ask questions, that consider the human condition, and our behaviour and relationships with each other as well as the way we behave when alone. I practice meditation at home, and in a way, street shooting is a meditative and cathartic process for me. If I’m very lucky, I find that my imagination becomes reality when out shooting, I can only liken this to when I meditate, and the feeling of it being just me and the universe, having a quiet conversation without words.

I’m also a member of Observe, an international street photography collective, focused primarily on the practice of candid street photography.
