In-A-Gadda-Da-England
2002-2020

For 20 years I've worked as a documentary photographer. I've photographed everyday life in England, predominantly in Kent, but also around the country.

Looking back over the photographs certain themes have revealed themselves: nostalgia, the rise of nationalism, the bizarre, protest, moments of serendipity with strangers and the sublime of the everyday.

Now after four years spent editing down thousands of photographs, ruminating on sequencing, layout and design, the book is ready to be made.

These photographs are largely unseen although you might have seen some of the work  over the years in National Geographic Magazine, The Guardian Weekend Magazine, The Telegraph Magazine, Newsweek Japan et al. Most recently the work won a Sony World Photo Award in 2019 and some of the work from the series was exhibited at Somerset House, London.

I will be launching a Kickstarter campaign soon to self-publish the book.
