In May 2014 he was selected to produce a public space photo essay on Sustainable Transport, launched as part of the Brighton Biennial. In 2013 he won Best Video award at the Environmental Photographer of the Year. He was also selected for the Vignette Award and in previous years exhibited at London’s City Hall.
In recent years Brighton and Hove has transformed into a city with sustainability principles at it’s core. This summer I was commissioned to document Sustainable Transport there. Cycling on long uninterrupted bike lanes was second only in my experience to riding on those in Amsterdam, and preceded by coffee in the coolest cycling-themed cafe I’ve ever frequented. Green initiatives are offering exciting new opportunities for inhabitants of the city, bringing about tangible change.
