Here is a selection of my work from the Lake District in the UK. These have been taken over the past five years and have involved thousands of hours of work. Many of them are taken at dawn and dusk and from high on the mountain involving very early starts, late nights and wild camps. Check out my website for background info on each photo and more work.
When USA-based photographer Adrain Chesser tested positive for HIV and was diagnosed with AIDS, he had an extreme physical reaction from just thinking about breaking the news to his family and friends. That’s how his photo series “I Have Something To Tell You” was born.
Photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher spent over 30 years taking photos of ceremonies, rituals and the daily life of African tribal peoples. These extraordinary images tell the story of the Dinka tribe in Sudan.

In Memphis TN- Overton Park
I gently kissed winter on the lips, hoping she would say goodbye.
As a child growing up in Zimbabwe, I often heard my mother make reference to ‘spring cleaning’, I think that was her smart way of encouraging me to tidy the disaster that was my living space, and had nothing to do with actual spring. Having lived in the four seasons go Memphis TN, I now understand fully what it is like to anxiously await the arrival of spring after a relentless winter! We are mere days away from official spring according to the calendar, and today we have a snow/ice/sleet storm that has crippled the daily practices of this southern city.
Here in spring everything changes. The lively atmosphere of the city becomes tangible. Runners and cyclists frequent the sidewalks, parks flood with all forms of recreation, the sky shines brighter, yard sales appear on every corner and life becomes lovely again.
Today I woke up to a frosted ground, hopefully the last one until the next cycle of this loathed polar vortex. I thought to myself ‘this is probably the last snow i’ll see until next year. I must capture and remember it; remember how gently a snow flake falls, how this entity is so small as an individual and so totally encompassing as a collective.’
Thus, I put on every piece of clothing I own, grabbed my camera and commenced the adventure!
This photo series is somewhat of a premature reminiscence of winter, what I hope to be the final goodbye.
Local graffiti artists turned this abandoned, decaying hotel into an “alternative” art exhibiton. I had no idea how many pieces were in this building so after making my way to the roof I slowly explored every floor and room on my way back down to the ground. The show did not last long though as the local authorities, To deter explorers and art lover alike from exploring this structure daubed paint over all the pieces making it not so much of an attraction. I am so glad i got to see this before all was lost!
