THE HAIR OF THE DOG THAT BIT YOU THE NIGHT BEFORE

A photo essay commissioned by the homelessness charity Thames Reach. It looks at their campaign to achieve a ban on the sale of super-strength lagers and ciders from the perspective of their clients.

CARING

Commissioned by Carers Network Westminster, these images observe two mothers providing full time care to their respective adult sons, both of whom have learning difficulties. While the sons are very vulnerable and in need of ongoing care, these images witness the care, support and affection they give back to their mothers.

THE MARQUIS OF LORNE

The rate of pub closures is accelerating and the most vulnerable are local, community pubs. This three-and-a-half minute photofilm laments and celebrates a dying institution, but also presents an urgent and positive call to action. (See also the BBC version).

CARLTON THE STREET PREACHER

For anyone who has spent much time in Brixton in South London, Carlton is a familiar face. Many people treat street preachers with suspicion and even contempt for what they see as their self-righteous moralising. But Carlton is a gentle soul who is well liked by the local community. This short photofilm gives a very brief insight into the life of a street preacher.

WATCHING THE DETECTIVES

This short photofilm is an introduction to the issues of police brutality at protests and an invitation to participate in its solution. Anyone with a digital camera can now play a vital role - as a 'citizen photojournalist' - in holding the police to account for their actions at protests and demonstrations.

SO WE STAND

So We Stand is an emerging grassroots activist group that supports communities to fight for environmental justice. This two minute photofilm was commissioned by SWS as part of the launch for this radical new movement.

STORIES OF ENVIRONMENTAL INJUSTICE

Environmental Justice is the basic right to live in a clean and healthy environment. Poor communities and ethnic minority groups are more likely to face environmental injustice.


The Stories of Environmental Justice website brings together photojournalism, activism, research and blogs to find solutions to environmental injustice. (Opens in a separate window).

PORTRAITS

These non-studio portraits were all taken many many years ago, before I had a professional camera. They’re all shot on cheap ‘point and shoot’ digital cameras.
