In 2016 I exhibited A photographer’s life – part one, a retrospective of my work from eleven years old, from my first plastic camera to my media work for international news organisations.

It documented the changes in the news media over the ages… from film to digital capture … the way news photography and photojournalism evolved over the decades.

The 2016 exhibition demonstrated that mainstream media faces massive challenges and a fight for survival and relevance. The message to all involved in the media – myself included – is to adapt.

Since then, I adapted and shifted focus and am back with (Selections from) A photographer’s life – part two, a fundamentally different body of work. While part one was almost exclusively ‘assigned’ media work, these images are less so.

A recent decline in opportunity and funding in media has meant that much of the new work was made independently, at times self-funded and sometimes purely personally observational.
