About the Photographer
"I knew from the age of about 16 that I wanted to be a photographer and that I wanted to do portraiture above all other things. I was lucky to start out at a time when great things were happening in music and film in Britain in the early nineties. I was photographing people who were the same age as me. There was a great sense of camaraderie and fun. Those years gave me the opportunity to gain a lot of experience in a relatively short period of time and since then I’ve grown into the kind of photographer that I wanted to be, which is one who uses his work to gain access to a lot of fascinating and varied worlds. Photography is the key that opens a lot of doors that would otherwise remain locked."
