The third year of Labyrinth’s anniversary exhibition A Year In Development opens this Thursday the 3rd of April.
I will be showing a picture taken in Sweden and it will be in great company amongst over 70 photographs, all shot on film throughout the last year. All hand printed by John McCarthy, curated by Clare Hewitt. Come!
Telerama Magazine recently commissioned me to go to Bradford and photograph Conner Chapman and Shaun Thomas, the lead actors of Clio Barnards recent film “The Selfish Giant”.
Just like her previous film “The Arbor”, “The Selfish Giant” is based on a true story from the Neighborhood Buttershaw, using local residents as actors. Apart from meeting the film’s local stars we also wandered the streets of Buttershaw and Homlewood with its scrap metal business and racing horses and met the real people that has inspired Conner and Shaun’s characters.
I was thrilled to get to go behind the scenes of this beautiful film, if you haven’t yet seen it I can warmly recommend it.
I am very excited to have won the Contour by Getty Portrait prize with my project Mady & Monette. This means the project will be exhibited at Galerie Polka in Paris, opening the 10th of October. If you are in Paris then please join me, Mady and Monette at the opening!
The lovely people at New York Magazine commissioned me to go to Paris to shoot some new material with Mady and Monette for them. The accompanying piece, written by Mary-Kay Wilmers, is out in New York this week for their special fashion issue.

I am excited to be part of this small group show along with five great and inspiring photographers. The show opens on the 14th of March in Belfast. Luke Stephenson, Peter Watkins, Tereza Zelenkova and myself will give a talk at the gallery on the 15th of March. If you are in Belfast then please join.
“The exhibition addresses the relationship between truth, fiction and fantasy that exists within documentary photography. The artists included in Thresholds are interested in documenting specific subjects and sites. The resulting images however, pose a challenge to our expectations of reality and resonate with the realm of the imaginary.”
Here is a link to the gallery’s website with some more info about the show.
