Great to see my pictures in The Guardian yesterday Great to see a whole gallery of my pictures in The Guardian yesterday including these two side by side, one taken 

in 1990 and the other in 2016. 

It had the highest engagement on The Guardian's facebook page, well beyond even Bob Dylan winning the Nobel Prize in Literature!

This is mainly due to people's concern about environmental laws following Brexit. Many very good environmental laws came from the EU.

Most of the pictures are scanned from transparencies.

Real Women I have just started a portrait project photographing women of a certain age who would like 

to be photographed but are unsure they photograph well!

Women are beautiful but if we are always measuring ourselves against the airbrushed beauties in the media,

we may well be disappointed. As a photographer, I would like to challenge the western notion that to

look good you have to be young. I like to photograph women without lots of make up and artifice, letting the inner beauty shine through.


Let me know what you think
