Candid England

Candid England

A billion pebbles converse quietly in the loving embrace of an afternoon sun, smooth curves caressed by a turquoise tide lapping gently at the shore edge. Seagulls circle high above a regatta of solo yachts whose sails billow with a gracious sea breeze, their waxed...

Foreign Expert Bureau

Foreign Expert Bureau

Jets of murky water shoot three stories high, rhythmic cascading arcs swirling from the centre of a circular lake towards the outer edges. Eager crowds gather at the water side to catch a glimpse of the aquatic ensemble, jumping back at the last minute to avoid...

The Abattoir

The Abattoir

I should probably put a warning here, some of the images will no doubt upset - it is an abattoir, afterall. The livestock market leaves nothing to the imagination, it's a time-tested script of source to sell perfectly executed on a clockwork schedule. Stepping through...

Ethiopian Timkat

Ethiopian Timkat

Bisrate Gabriel buzzes with nervous excitement as children dressed in white robes hurry from doorway to doorway, their maroon ropes and golden tassels swinging back and forth as they weave amongst the busy crowd. Church elders embellished in resplendent garb pace...

The Tashkurgan Horse Fair

The Tashkurgan Horse Fair

The bustling cattle markets once sprawled across Xinjiang are slowly vanishing, the promise of a glistening international future fuelling the rapid consumption of valuable city-limit land. Hordes of bright-yellow gas-guzzling behemoths crawl over sun-bleached...

A Dawn Chorus

A Dawn Chorus

It's easy to forget that most digital and printed literature only ever really show us the best of the best, often hiding our learning and mistakes to the public. A Dawn Chorus was eventually captured from the living room balcony in our appartment in Addis. I posted it...

Shooting Joumana

Shooting Joumana

I first met Katerina in central Vienna. We shared stories over a coffee or two in a pokey coffee haus just off the Graben and soon started working together, shooting whatever and whenever our schedules would allow. Katerina Joumana has been a staple of the oriental...

The Wilds

The Wilds

The tide came in quicker than I'd expected; what was once a dry beach soon resembled the very deep-end of a swimming pool. Grappling with the sharp end of a huge boulder I levered my tired body up and over the pointy apex, sliding down the other side, bouncing all the...

Candid Ethiopia

Candid Ethiopia

Travelling silently through the southern Ethiopian lowlands our Landcruiser grinds to a momentous halt, tires raking through loose earth as the metal frame narrowly avoids the curb-side market stalls. Chickens squawk and flap as my Nikons crash into a dark footwell,...

Candid China

Candid China

As midnight chimes on an icy rooftop overlooking Meijiang Nan, seemingly every firework in the entire world goes off in unison. Rockets rocket skyward, a trillion fire trails lifting from earth’s surface heading for the heavens. They erupt in a dark sky set on fire...

Candid Cambodia

Candid Cambodia

A scent of oak filters through the morning streams of sunlight, wisps of white wood smoke twirling and dancing to the heart-beat of another day in Kep’s busy crab shacks. Not particularly interested in joining in the morning dance, I opt to sit as far away from the...

The Gelada Baboons of Debre Libanos

The Gelada Baboons of Debre Libanos

The Gelada baboon (Theropithecus gelada) exists exclusively across parts of the northern Ethiopian Highlands, living in unison with nature, tourism and, increasingly, urbanisation. Tracking the primates across the Ethiopian Great Rift Valley is not always an easy...
