My collection of images I called "the distance between us" came into being over a year ago. While revisiting my work, I began to saw a number of photographs with two figures interacting with one another through a gesture, eye contact or just being in close proximity to one another. Some of those interactions were obviously intended by both parties, others were not. What interested me was their record of moments that we are all party to, throughout our public lives on the streets. The effect of sharing public space with a random cross-section of others means we experience a level of intimacy that I think is worth cherishing.

I was content to let these pictures live together as a stack of prints. I'd just published two books and wanted to absorb the process and consequences of that. However at the end of last year I felt ready to think about how they could be presented on the printed page.

My original book "loved; life; London" follows the traditional approach of a monograph: same-size images sequentially presented as they'd appear on a white gallery wall. The second, "Portrait of a Street Photographer", is an attempt to put the photographs into the context of why they were made. To reflect the street experience different layouts are used to give the book a rhythm and dissonance. My new book "the distance between us", develops that approach and deliberately presents the images in a fractured way. It's not a printing error!

For over twenty years I've practised in London and, occasionally, Paris, Tokyo & New York. I enjoy discussing, showing and writing about my work. My photographs are in the collections of the Royal Photographic Society and the Bibliothèque Nationale and in, 2011, my work was selected for the Museum of London's survey of London street photography. I'm currently busy with the Ambiguous Book Project, a collaboration between photographers from around the world, now published on Blurb! Contact me at
