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.

The prints are A3 with the mount and framing making them 52 x 59 cm. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

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 below are the ones that are currently available. Please click on the pictures to make them bigger for better viewing.

Due to interest I have printed another copy of my degree work book - A Silent Crisis. I have four copies left to sell and unless there is demand I will not be reprinting. There are 20 printed over all. 
The book is my portfolio about various issues that are caused by the environmental degradation of the Gaza strip and its effects on the local Palestinians.

2014 Review and Update

Thought I might do a review of my 2014 in pictures as I have been enjoying other people's even if mine is a little late. I have chosen the images that are my favourite, not necessarily my best.

Both shots on the Dal lake in Srinagar - Kashmir. Kashmir was a bit of a failed venture but still a fascinating trip none the less.

Quite simple - on a bus in Mumbai.

Basanti Dasi, one of the widows of Vrindavan in her Ashram. She just seemed to get what I wanted out of the picture and just let me get on with it.

Like a model in a fashion shoot. A kushti wrestler having a shower in Delhi.

Syrian refugees chilling out on a landfill near Beirut. They where really sweet. I think they where just taking a moment away from everything.

Ali Srour is a land mine survivor from the south on Lebanon. We met up for an interview and he showed me around his town and took me to see the Israel/ Palestine border. He was very open to me about his experiences and I think he is a top guy.

A photo of my subjects Susan's father shot during my assignment at the Eddie Addams Workshop no 27.

I have recently started photographing Oldham Athletic fans. Very different to my usual work but I am having a seriously good time doing it. The fans have really made me feel welcome so cheers to everyone helping me out with the project.

George not happy at Oldham Athletics 7-0 loss away at MK dons

Keith at MK Dons happy to be allowed a half time cig.


I have stationed my self in Oldham, North West England. I am currently working on a number of projects. The Oldham Athletic work is starting to get published which is great. I am also planing a photo film as well as a potential book on the subject, so watch this space. I am also working on other long term investigations in the area which I should be able to start showing soon.

Peter Kirk Fund

I am very happy to announce that I have been awarded the Peter Kirk Scholarship this year and will be working on a project in Poland for two months starting February.
