The initial drive of this project was to raise money for brain injury and movement disorder organizations, achieved through the donation of photographic material for the publication of a book.' Life Still Dreams' became the first photobook to visually illustrate an illness through the medium of photographic storytelling.
Captured in a library of images dating from early as the 1970s using Kodak 8mm film, to modern day digital format - this photographic design style focuses on capturing geometric based, high contrast photography compositions in its general scope of work.

The published photobook follows a cinematic theme, illustrated as ‘Life. Still. Dreams’, and is a reflection of life experiences. The sequencing of the images is to evoke an emotional journey and highlight the vibrancy, yet stillness of life.

All proceeds from the 'Life Still Dreams' book will be equally donated to our charities.
SILENCE THE SHADOWS
By taking a holistic view, ‘Silence the Shadows’, is the exploration of the power shadows can have in presenting an object and, setting the tone of this particular photographic work. As the title entails, this book dwells into a dark and gloomy perception of post modernism, and foreshadows the inspiration for the ensemble of these photographs. Therefore, in order to retain this element of mystery, keen viewers will notice the gradual use of shadows, hiding the subject from sight. Doing so, the overall sequence can be viewed as a deliberate intention to mask any sources of light and, draw attention to the more sinister shift in visual documentation. (read more here)
SHADOWS SHAPES SPACES
These photographs were initially exhibited by the BBC in 2010, under tACEShe theme ‘Shadows and Lines’. This led to further exploration of this initial body of work, and became the springboard for this book. Overall, ‘ Shadows Shapes Spaces’ is an initial photographic illustration of how shadows interfere with spaces, with this focus being further developed in the sequel book ‘Silence the Shadows’. Several of the photos highlight how SHADOWS create geometric SHAPES, especially in empty SPACES. (view slides here)
