I am a freelance photographer based in London’s East End.

Since the 1980’s I have worked with numerous theatre companies including Complicite, Clean Break, Second Wave, the Almeida Music Festivals, the Royal Court and other fringe theatre companies. and for the Whoopee Club which intitiated the revival of burlesque in 2001. My television work includes Stephen Poliakof ‘s For Perfect Strangers and The Lost Prince – both as production photographer and creating images that become an integral part of the film.

Since 2000 I have also facilitated on community photography projects for elders, young people, teenage mums and the homeless with, All Change, Photoworks, Blackfriars Settlement and Four Corners Film and Photography where we are exploring analogue photography. I also worked with Theatre Nomad in the UK and in South Africa to collaborate and explore ways of people telling their stories.

My personal work continues to be inspired by living and working in the Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Islington areas, and includes Arsenal football supporters, working women in Hackney, Smithfield Market, Spitalfields, Shoreditch at night and strip pubs in the East End. Most of these projects have been exhibited and published in various publications both at home and abroad.

Over the last ten years I have been a contributing photographer on the Spitalfields Life blog.

In 1991 I was commissioned by Hackney Musem, London to photograph working women in Hackney and this has been an on going personal project since then. I will be starting a new commission with Oxford House on working women in the Bethnal Green area later this year.

I have collaborated on several books including  ‘Complicite Rehearsal Notes’ (2010)  a book that illustrates the unique working methods of this company, and ‘Baby Oil and Ice’ (2002) which records the demise of strip pubs in the east end.

Over the last few years I have been curating exhibitions with Alternative Arts for ‘Women’s History Month’ and ‘Black History Month’. Also for The Gate Darkroom in Woolwich.
