Newsletter for exhibition news and dates
Born in Rotorua, New Zealand. I came to photography through my father's broken 35mm Voigtlander camera. My first photographs were made for my high school magazine and then for my musician friends after moving to London . In 1994, I attended a remarkable lecture by Magnum photographer David Hurn. He outlined how this group of willful photographers created influence and change. The other major influence came after meeting photographer Tim Flach in London during 1997. I went on to become his first assistant and his continued mentorship is invaluable.
In 2016, I was awarded Royal Photographic Society's Environmental Bursary and have begun, as such, to chronicle human environmental landmarks and interpret the cause and effect at a critical time of accelerated climate change.
