Next week, I’ve been asked to talk alongside three other photographers at Photojournalism Hub’s first Photojournalism Nights event at Elephant West gallery in White City.

I’ll be talking about South London Stories (and this blog, where the project started in 2015) – the background to it, some of the ethical challenges it entails, looking at one previously published story in detail, plus a bit about what I’m working on at the moment.

Tickets are free, but you have to register for the event, which you can do on Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/elephant-x-photojournalism-hub-tickets-58988597483

When: Tuesday 21 May 2019, 18.00-21.00

Where: Elephant West, 62 Wood Lane, London, W12 7RH

I’m one of four photographers talking about their work that night – the others are Tavis Bohlinger, Giovanna del Sarto and Rob Pinney. I strongly recommend having a look at their work – they’re all doing very interesting, and different, things. There will also be the opportunity to network with other photographers and journalists. Please do come down if you’re free – it would be lovely to see you there!

I thought I’d also take this opportunity for a quick update.

The last story I published was in 2018, so it might feel like this project has gone a bit quiet – but the truth is I’m still working away at it, I just take a long time to finish each new story. I’m currently working on two stories – one I began about 18 months ago, the other just under a year ago. I hope to have the first of these stories published at some point over the summer, but it is not a process I will ever rush. I want to get it right.

You can visit the South London Stories website if you’d like to see all the work I’ve produced so far, and you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram for updates.
