Photography has been a passion throughout my life. I ran the Half Moon Gallery in London's East End from 1974 to 1980. Teaming up with some wonderfully talented people we put on regular exhibitions of documentary photography and created the magazine "Camerawork".
In 1981 together with eight others I co-founded photo agency 'Network Photographers'. Over the years the agency built an international reputation for photojournalism, documentary photography and corporate work of the highest quality.
Photo stories, assignments and projects have taken me to more than 70 countries and my pictures have been published in the major magazines around the world.
In 2002 Acqua, a project on water I had been working on for four years in conjunction with Grazia Neri was published by Motta in Italy. In 2003 Acqua was made into an exhibition that has toured Italy for two years and has been seen by more than 100,000 people.
