If I dress like an MP I will become one - (project)

I invited the sixth form of my alma mater in Leiston Suffolk to sit for a traditional 70’s style school portrait - instead of wearing school uniform I asked them to dress in a way that reflected their interests or personal style - the results were much quieter than I expected and invested with a slight pathos - however, I did feel that I captured a more honest version of the dreaded school photo for them to reflect on in years to come - The title of the piece is the actual response from the student in the suit and tie to my query as to why he was dressed so smartly -


Darts and Minds - a night at the people's palace - (project)

I finally realised my dream of documenting the fanatical darts crowd at Alexandra Palace on the opening night of the PDC championship in December last year -
On entering the main hall I was completely overwhelmed by the sheer scale and frenzied atmosphere of the occasion and for a moment wasn’t sure if I was man enough for the task ahead - I shot in b/w in an effort to turn down the volume of the subject matter and to enhance the sense of nostalgia that attending this event ignited in me from watching the darts on TV in the 70’s -
