Born in Wales, UK, 1974, I'm a self taught documentary and portrait photographer that discovered photography in the early 90's through the skateboard culture. I mainly focus on long-term projects that explore Wales and the Welsh; shooting stories in both traditional and contemporary approach.
My work has been featured in many publications including The British Journal of Photography, CCQ Magazine, Ernest Journal, Jungle Magazine and Black & White Photography Magazine. I've participated in over 45 exhibitions both nationally and internationally; including 6 solo shows.
2018, I was announced as one of the winners of the BJP, Portrait of Britain prize.
My second published photobook - Gap in the Hedge - Published by Another Place Press is available Here - A short edit of the series can be seen here on the site.
Several pieces of my work are held in the permanent collections at the MMX Gallery, London and Film's Not Dead Print Room, London. Suicide Machine & Gap in the Hedge books held in the photobook archive at the Martin Parr Foundation, Bristol.
