I have been taking photographs since the 1990s, when I bought my first camera: a Praktica MTL50. It gave me many hours of joy as I taught myself to balance shutter speeds and apertures, to make long exposures, and, most importantly, how to frame a shot. Since then, I've dabbled in digital photography, but I keep coming back to film, both 35mm and 120mm. There's texture in it, and touch too: something tangible, even if only faintly so. My photographs have been used on travel websites (both UK and internationally), in marketing material, on album covers and in various publications. I had a little feature on them in The Guardian, participated in an exhibition called 'Bogotá sabe a cine' that explored Bogotá's cityscape as a site of generative intersections between cinema and photography, and showed my 'Untangling the Mangrove' images at the Mangrove Festival (Festival del Manglar) in Barranquilla in December 2017.
My job regularly takes me to Latin America, most frequently to Colombia, but when I get time off I like photographing life in busy streets, and encounters with others who have stories to tell. I think I'm getting better at that, slowly.
