Prints and Books For Sale

Due to a recent exhibition I put on I have some framed prints and books of my work for sale. The prints have been professionally mounted and framed by Tim Treslove at the Wiltshire Gallery Salisbury. They are £75 (not including P+P) and all proceeds go the help funding my photographic work. All the framed work is ready to hang by string on the back and all are the same colour in terms of frames and mounting.

Due to my work progressing onto new projects it is unlikely I will print off these pictures again so get them whilst you can. The images bellow are the ones that are currently available.

Oldham Athletic In Germany/ Book

As you may or may not know I have been doing a long term project following the fans of Oldham Athletic. Recently I was invited to Berlin to see a Frankfurt away game due to the friendship between Frankfurt and Oldham supporters. 

The work is to be published on Howler Magazine, Eleven Magazine and has been published on Vice Sports in both..

I am putting the Oldham Athletic work into a book and am currently working on a draft design, watch this space...

Oldham's Community 

I have been working on long term reportages about community issues in Oldham that range from poverty stemming from benefit sanctioning to drug addiction.

Some images from this work can be seen on these sites I have been featured on recently although I am sitting on the body of work until I feel it is done.

Here are some images from this upcoming work.

Poland Photo Diary 2015

I have just arrived in Poland where I will be for two months creating a body of work about Polish migration/ diaspora to the U.K. I will be investigating a few stories and themes relating to this subject including the core reasons and why it is popular for Poles to do so and the effects on Poland good and bad.

I am starting this online photo mini blog which I will be updating with a new image everyday (or two, or three...ish) so please keep an eye on this post.

Reszel/ Home 17th April

Sorry for lack of posting, I was in a very small town called Reszel for some time and there was minimal internet there, I have included a few of the pictures I took bellow.

I am now home from Poland and am now on to editing, writing and pitching so watch this space for my final piece in the coming weeks.

I have been taught a real lesson in how to be kind to strangers in Poland. So many people put me up, fed me, drove me around, translated, gave me lots of Vodka, let me take lots of photos and generally treated me very well. So a massive to thank you to everyone who has helped me on my trip, particularly in Poznan, Reszel and Zamosc, it was great!

Here are some pictures from Reszel
