I was a "social landscape" photographer before I knew what it was. I bought my first Kodak Instamatic camera when I was 11 while on vacation with my grandparents. This unleashed a fury of image taking that my grandmother described at the time as wasting film. By 14 I had appropriated my father's Nikon F and my uncle taught me to develop film. My heroes were Garry Winogrand and Robert Frank and by the time I got to art school I was one sophisticated street photographer. These images represent a selection of 30 years of picture taking.
