My subject matter is the urban environment in its many forms. Initially inspired by the time I spent living and working in East London, I first produced work reflecting an area in a state of flux, from graffitied streets to the towering presence of Canary Wharf. I have since gone on to record some of the architectural highlights of the City from Wren churches to the latest skyscrapers.
