When making books I work collaboratively, sharing responsibility for idea generation, concept development, picture editing, and layout development. I’m always actively involved with the writing and editing too.
Working with Anna Douglas always results in a volume that will have meaning long after the associated event or exhibition has closed.
Designed to support an exhibition of Shirley Baker’s ‘street’ photographs at The Photographers’ Gallery (June–September 2015) curated by Anna, the first edition of Shirley Baker: women and children; and loitering men sold out within weeks, becoming something of a collector’s item.
Two more editions followed, the latest coinciding with the opening of the same exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery (May–August 2017).
In May 2016 the book was included in the photography book award exhibition at PhotoEspaña 2016.
Other work included the design of the logotype and exhibition graphics (for the London exhibition).
