I am delighted to have recently been selected to participate in the 2015/16 ISSP International Masterclass with Aaron Schuman, "Labyrinths: Navigating Photographic Paths".
I will be heading to Latvia on 14th March 2015 for the 1st of three workshops in Kuldiga, Latvia and Braga, Portugal.
Over the course of a year, I will be making a new body of photographic work that will in some way investigate, incorporate, or be influenced by the idea of the labyrinth; a single, complex path that turns in and out on itself.
I look forward to sharing more information and initial works from the project shortly!

I am extremely pleased that Disposable is now in print, accompanying the current issue of Uncertain States I Open Call & Issue 20.
Disposable is a collaborative project that started in 2012, involving people experiencing homelessness in London. Using photography as a means for expression and articulation I worked closely with 3 artists over the period of a year to develop a significant body of original photographic works.

I am really pleased to bring Disposable to it's 3rd exhibition, this time at Ziferblat London*. This exhibition brings together the works of Bill Wood, R.O.L and Spike Aston. The photographs were taken between September 2012 and October 2013 with disposable cameras.
Disposable is a photography project working with people who are affected by homelessness in Central London. The essence of the Disposable project is collaborating with others and building a community. This ethos is echoed in its current exhibition space at Ziferblat* London, a social co-working space.
I will be at Ziferblat London for the duration of the exhibition and I ask you to join me and collaborate with me, through conversation, in turning Disposable into an artist’s book to share with the wider community.
To find out the times when I will be working please contact a member of staff at Ziferblat or contact me directly: email@example.com
The exhibition is now open until 8 September. Open daily from 12pm - 11pm.
*Ziferblat is a pay-per-minute space at a rate of 5p per minute (£3 an hour).
Disposable’s first exhibition took place at GLO’s outreach venue in Soho in April 2013, followed by a pivotal exhibition at Four Corners Gallery, Bethnal Green in October 2013.

I will be exhibiting again in Labyrinth Photographic's annual exhibition 'A Year in Development'!
Back for its third year running, this popular exhibition is a representation of the continued, diverse and expanding use of analogue photography realised through the art and craftsmanship of hand printing.
