My Final Frame


My final frame shot at the Kurmaguda Academy for Relief and Education in Hyderabad. Housed over several floors in an old building to the south of the city, hundreds of local children are provided with a free education. One of my favourite places that I have visited in India over many years, KARE is an inspirational project. Visiting and meeting the staff and children was one of the highlights of my year. Thanks Tom Holloway for the opportunity to visit.

Stars Shining Brightly


In a world where world leaders and potential US presidents, openly push forward anti Muslim sentiment, three small muslim girls living in the slums of a poor Hyderabad neighbourhood grasp an opportunity to get an education. Hurting nobody, their Hijab offending nobody, they pose happily for my photograph. Hyderabad August 2016

I was given the opportunity to photograph the staff and students here by a friend of mine, Tom Holloway. Tom lives in India and works extensively in humanitarian causes. Thanks also to Ghouse for getting me there.
