Latest news/Kabul Stories

January 19th, 2010

Most of the news coming out of Afghanistan is focused on the fighting, the deaths of soldiers, terrorism or impenetrable  political analysis. We seldom hear much about how the war has effected the ordinary Afghans or how they are coping and what they think. ‘Kabul Stories’ is a look via the medium of portraiture at the people of Kabul and an opportunity to personalise the people experiencing the war on Terror first hand.

It has been published several times most recently in Geo in the German edition and more recently the international edition available to buy right now in these countries: Croatia, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Finland, India, Brazil, Russia, Italy, Spain, Latvia and Lithuania. It was first published in The Guardian Weekend and soon after in  Politiken and US Marie Claire.

Hi There!

This is me

first blog

January 19th, 2010

Hi , I’m a photographer specialising in portraits and features usually for magazines like the Sunday times, Saturday Times, Telegraph Mag, Guardian Weekend, as well as respected consumer magazines like Marie Claire. You can see more about me and who I work for on the profile page of my web site at . I am based in the Greater London area, with a work base in Camberwell, South East London. My residential address is in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire which makes it easy to work equally well in the region north west of London.

I will be using this blog to keep you updated with interesting projects and relevant news as it emerges, for example those of you living in these countries as I write this in January 2010:  Croatia, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Finland, India, Brazil, Russia, Italy, Spain, Latvia and Lithuania might want to check out my recent story from Kabul, Afghanistan in the international edition of GEO Magazine. It’s about the people as opposed to the fighting, but more of that in the blog.
