Very happy to have been asked to speak about what photography means to me for UN of Photography. Not an easy thing to do in just five minutes, but I gave it a go! If you want to listen, i'm in at around 12 minutes on the podcast.
The winner and shortlist for the Unveil'd Photobook award has just been announced! It's never easy having to judge such varying work against one another, and as a photographer it's not a responsibility I take lightly! It was however a real pleasure to see so many exciting and diverse books, and we are all really excited to announce the Winner and shortlisted books! A big thanks to the judging panel (Tom Coleman, Hannah Watson, Jessica Lennan, Max Ferguson, Lola Paprocka) for their time and particularly Hannah at Trolley for hosting Unveil'd for the day. Congratulations to the winner Fabrixio Albertini for his book Radici! You can see all the Shortlisted photographers on the Unveil’d website.
It was really interesting to see The Moor on press at Wells printers and to watch the litho printing process and the technology now used to manage this traditional printing method. Really looking forward to seeing the finished bound book!

Steve Bisson kindly interviewed me for the Urbanautica Institute Journal. I always find interviews a very productive exercise as they afford you an opportunity to reflect on your work and the motivations behind the photographs. Click <Here> for the interview.
