Enjoy a coffee & immerse yourself in Africa in Norwich

The feedback for the latest installment of Give a Child a Camera continues to be extremely positive.

I’m sure one or two of my students could have promising photographic careers, Thanks to those of you who were able to attend the supporters evening on the 4th November – it was lovely to chat and explain some of the work and I’m really pleased it seems to have gone down well.

The exhibition is on until the 1st December, plenty of time to pop into the lovely Playhouse, view the work, read the stories behind the images and have a coffee – unwind, relax and immerse yourself in Africa.


Give a Child a Camera | Norwich Exhibition

Really excited to announce the next Give a Child a Camera exhibition is being shown at the wonderful Playhouse in Norwich this autumn.

Visit the Playhouse between the 30th October to 1st December and witness first hand a selection of wonderfully emotive images that the children, taking part in the project in Southwest Uganda shot during the month-long workshops this year.

A chance to gain a true insight into the lives of children living in a border town in East Africa, as they use photography to document their lives.

Give a Child a Camera Edinburgh exhibition is up!

Give a Child a Camera Edinburgh exhibition is up! Huge thanks to Wex Photo Video and in particular Emma and the marketing team for showing such passion for the project and for assisting & providing a great store venue. A special mention also to store manager Francesco, who equally demonstrated so much love & passion for the children’s incredible work.
It feels wonderful to be able to display work from the children in Southwest Uganda in the Scottish capital – I know for a fact they can’t believe their images are on display for the world to see.
The mini exhibition is up until the end of June, so please, if you’re in the area do pop in and enjoy the work of 15 children.
Plans for #giveachildacamera 2019 are well underway…..

Give A Child A  Camera Exhibition | Edinburgh

Give A Child A  Camera Exhibition | Edinburgh

This exhibition illustrates the latest work of the students in Southwest Uganda who were part of Give a Child a Camera V3 in 2018. Working with a group of children whose mothers are largely sex workers on the Ugandan/Rwanda border, this new project has without doubt been one of the most moving to date. This insightful, vibrant and truthful collection of images documents the children’s lives using their own photographs. See around 15 beautiful images that the children in this part of Uganda have shot using 35mm film cameras over a 3 week program working with Julian Claxton

Buy the book | Life in Rural Uganda

Thanks to all who paid a visit to my exhibition over the last couple of days and to those of you who joined me for wine and lovely canapés (thanks to Funnells for those) Monday evening.

I hope the photographs inspired you and from the point of view of the children’s work from Eden School, made your heart warm.

I’m at the Forum in Norwich until 4pm on the 8th August so be sure to pop in.
I was also on Radio Norfolk yesterday afternoon, on the Stephen Bumfrey show (around 14:30) talking about the project and featuring some superb sounds from the children as they sung aloud! fantastic! I’d encourage you to listen again if you are able to.

On another note to do with the project, exhibition and to continue the growth of the project, as well as telling a story of my time in rural Uganda I have published a photographic book.

The book features a stunning selection of my images from rural Uganda, while half the book is devoted to the photographic students of Eden School and their amazing photographs of their life.

The book is available to purchase through the link below as well as Amazon (within a couple of weeks) or if you pop into the exhibition order a copy for £25.00

Of course, proceeds from the book go towards my continued involvement in the project “Give a child a camera”


Western Uganda | Photographic Exhibition in Lowestoft

Between 12-16th August I will be exhibiting images from a recent journey into Western Uganda.  The exhibition is the first body of work that I have shown locally for some six years, usually displaying my work in Norwich, Bury & Cambridge.

The collection of images, entitled Western Uganda | A Perspective is an exhibition of images documenting people I met, the landscape around me and the impact one particular school had on me.

Planning to return to the school in 2015, I wish to return with some basic materials for the children, as well as returning with a collection of photographic equipment for the children to use. I plan to teach them how to take photographs and will be getting them to tell a story of their life through pictures, that I would love to show at some point in the future.

I would dearly love to see you at some point  next week.
