I rarely make photos when I am on holiday with Emma, I find it hard to concentrate on what is happening around me. But London is so packed with people, packed with life and energy it is hard not to make photos.
These are from the only sunny day of our long weekend break last week.
Merry Christmas you filthy animal.
I made this photo in 2018 while Emma was shopping in Blade Rubber Stamps, near the British Museum. Suddenly the road was filled with Santas, who had obviously had a little too much of the brandy and mince pies.
"May the force be with you"
I made this photo while following a protest through the streets of Bristol. My eye was caught by the way this officer held his arms behind his back, with tattoos on show. It was only when reviewing the photos later that I spotted what was depicted. Perhaps I should call this one, "the long arm of the law".
You better watch out
You better not cry
I made this photo in December 2016 on Anchor Road behind @wshed. I feel there is tension and unease from these two children running to or possibly from something while the person in the background looks befuddled or confused.
He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows when you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
Our lives are filled with moments of hilarity, stupidity, absurdity, and frustration. I like to be there to make photographs of life, as it happens.
I made this photograph in an area of Bristol known as The Bear Pit. It was a haven of self expression through graffiti that changed weekly, but due in part to anti-social behaviour was sterilised back to being an underpass through a roundabout.
London; November 2022.
There are parts of London that are dark and dingy, that hark back to a different time, a different place - until something snaps you back into today as you see the chain coffee cup to keep them going through the remainder of a long day.
