The Matador

Bullfighting is a huge part of the Spanish identity and history, with origins as early as 711 AD.
With growing division in the opinion of whether the killing of an animal should continue for entertainment, I went to Spain in search of the next generation of young hopeful matadors.
I found young men who felt they’d learnt respect, courage and discipline from the teachings of bullfighting. Some were from generations of bullfighters and the culture around this performance of strength, movement and machismo was their life in and outside of the arena. 

Made with the support of the Joan Wakelin Bursary and The Guardian.

Ground Clearance  

In the mid-to-late 1940’s a new subculture in America emerged.
Mexican-American youths had been known to place sandbags in their custom vehicles so that the body of their car would ride close to the road.
This was aesthetically pleasing for those involved in the scene and would later be technologically advanced, for the same effect to be achieved by hydraulics.
Lowriding was formed out of Mexican-American culture, and the vehicles were decorated to hold political statements and sported images representing the culture from which it was born.
As the years passed, and the 21st century began, Lowriding culture became extremely popular.
Often seen in popular music videos, the scene was embraced by cultures all around the world and amassed huge global appeal.
Last Days Of Summer  
United Kingdom
2019 - Ongoing

Last Days Of Summer is an ongoing photographic documentation of Southend-on-Sea. It aims to capture the multifaceted ways in which people, representing various age groups, backgrounds, and cultures, engage with the coastal environment.
As a new resident of the city, this series of images has served both as a means for exploration and connection to my new home.

Young Fathers  
United Kingdom

Although outdated stereotypes of parenting between men and women are starting to change for the better, I still rarely see the important representation of young men as loving father figures.
These images are a selection of young fathers and guardians, who portray the gentle, influential and caring relationship between fathers and their sons and daughters.

Skins and Suedes  
United Kingdom
2015 — Ongoing

Skinheads drew influence from the early Mod style and originally had the music of 1960s Jamaican musicians as their soundtrack.
Those involved in the subculture had a sense of working-class pride and this attribute was often recognised in the white and black youth, who grew up across England.
The distinct skinhead look went on to be adopted by various fascist groups and many original skinheads felt it was time to abandon their style, due to the negative association.
Some true skinheads refused to give up their style, which ultimately caused a divide within the subculture between those with differing political stances.
