“My photography is inspired by a desire to capture fleeting moments; the small details – shadows, light – that express the essence of places, and the dignity and humanity of every person I meet and photograph. Much of my photography is taken in countries that are far ‘poorer’ in material terms than the UK (where I happen to live). But I often make a choice not to focus on poverty and desperation in my work – these are worthy subjects for the news photographers. In places where material wealth may be absent, I try to present my subjects with respect and dignity, and in a way that they would wish to be seen, rather than through my own Western filter. In this way I strive for a more positive, less voyeuristic and less superficial perspective with my photography”.
