The first post

 Welcome to my new blog. I plan to post news of recent work regularly and it would be great if you would consider subscribing. 

My first post is from a shoot in Zanzibar last month. Most of the images were taken in and around Stone Town, Zanzibar’s cultural and historical heart. The town is reminiscent of the Kasbahs of North Africa and as I walked through the ancient streets, I was also reminded of Havana, a city I photographed for a book ten years ago. Due to a mix of cultural and religious reasons, the residents of Stone Town were very reluctant to be photographed. I had to flatter and cajole my subjects before they inevitably turned away from my camera, politely protesting. More images from both Stone Town and Havana can be seen on my website.
