Shortlisted for the Royal Photographic Society IPE 164

Shortlisted for the Royal Photographic Society IPE 164

I’m honoured that one of my portraits has been shortlisted for the Royal Photographic Society's 164th International Photography Exhibition. I took this portrait of Gazmend Bikaj, a nomadic shepherd in Albania’s Kelmend region, while working on a project about the Malësorë highlanders in 2019. Inhabiting some of the most remote areas of Albania’s northern mountains, the Malësorë have survived and maintained many aspects of their culture through centuries of upheaval. Today they are some of the last people carrying on traditional pastoralism in...

So grateful to have the chance to discuss my work in depth, and the impact I am trying to have as a visual storyteller.  Have a listen here:...

Dubrovnik for BA High Life Magazine - Part 1

Dubrovnik for BA High Life Magazine - Part 1

Was pleased to have the chance to shoot these photos of Dubrovnik in the off season for British Airways High Life magazine. I've had commissions in Dubrovnik before, but always in the busy summer season, so it was a real treat to be able to experience the city during a calmer time. Dubrovnik can often feel like Disneyland, with crowds of people, cruise ships, and most things tailored towards tourism. Wandering the quiet, cool streets in winter, I experienced a completely different atmosphere, with locals indeed "taking back" their old town, carrying on life as they have for...
