My Normandy series is published in the September 2017 issue of the Italian magazine, Internazionale.
I have a new series of photographs published in the April 2016 issue of National Geographic Magazine, alongside an article by Ken Otterbourg: ‘How Urban Parks Are Bringing Nature Close to Home’
My photographic narrative offers a timeline of urban parks beginning in 1660, when St. James’s Park in London was made available to the public, up to the present day. It illustrates the evolving nature of urban parks over time and the philosophies behind them, reflecting the cultural history and social values of their origin. It includes photographs of urban parks in London, Barcelona, Katowice, San Francisco, New York, Houston, Seoul and Toronto.
Photographs from my We English series are included in the current issue of IL Magazine in Italy, the monthly news magazine of Italian financial newspaper, along with a new image for the cover. The photographs accompany an article entitled ‘Please Don’t Go’ discussing the upcoming referendum on British membership of the EU.

My National Property series is featured in the current issue of South Korea Monthly Photography, alongside an interview and profile.

A notorious, now partially demolished, complex of high-rise flats. Built in the 1960s, the flats were intended to house almost 5,000 people as part of an attempt to ease overcrowding and combat slum conditions. The six remaining blocks will be brought down in a one-off demolition in late 2015.
As new sustainable development goals are announced to tackle poverty, inequality and climate change, 10 photographers were chosen by Action/2015 to offer their perspectives on equality, with subjects ranging from the Awá tribe in Brazil to factory workers in Wisconsin.
Representing Britain, my three selected photographs examine the way in which the landscape can become a site of unease, a place where ideas of nationhood and what it means to be British are played out as diverse social groups inhabit and shape shared public spaces. My images for Action/2015 are my attempt to explore ideas of race equality in Britain and question how our often paradoxical attitude to immigration is played out.

Typhoon Haiyan (or Yolanda as it’s known locally) wreaked havoc across much of the central Philippines. In total, more than 8,000 people were killed, and more than four million people were forced from their homes.
In the short term, the typhoon left more than 14.1 million people in need of immediate, life-saving assistance. But it also pushed millions of poor people further into poverty and debt. Rice crops, coconut trees and fishing boats were wiped out, leaving people struggling to grow food and earn an income.
Over the past year I’ve been collaborating with Oxfam and The Guardian to create a series of landscape photographs which show the changes taking place on the ground after such a devastating natural disaster.
The results were published in the Guardian Weekend Magazine on 1st November 2014 (below) along with an article by Kate Hodal. You can view the feature online here as well as see the landscape photograph transitions.
