I’ve worked as a photographer off and on for over twenty years.  I am also a writer and that ‘me’ can be found here.   In recent years the emphasis has been on writing and performing, with photography largely being restricted to other writers and performers.

I am returning to personal projects this year, with an exhibition at Norwich Arts Centre in November.  This will include some of my ‘city’ work, which I have sustained over the last ten years.   I will making other new personal work, between now and then.  I will be posting examples of that.

In the past, I’ve been published by numberous magazines and all the British broadsheet newspapers, including features in The Independent Magazine & The Telegraph Magazine.  I was Arts Council England, East photographer for Year of the Artist.  I also worked for the BBC and Channel 4.  My work still finds its way into numerous publications and I hope to return to editorial work when time and opportunity allows.

My personal work has been exhibited widely, including at Side Gallery, NewcastleUpon Tyne; Watershed, Bristol; Firstsite, Colchester, Norwich Arts Centre; F-Stop, Bath; Imge Gallery, Bedford; Focal point, Wysing Arts, Southend; and included in several groups shows, including at: The national Portrait Gallery, The Photographers’ Gallery, Gottingen University, Gijon, Spain and Durham Museum.  The greatest erection to my ego is a permanet two story high installation of lightbox images at Tyneside Discovery Museum, which has stood for over ten years now.

I am based in Norwich, England and available for commissioning for editorial or commercial work.  I am also experienced in author pictures and performer show images (see Writers’ Page).   I can be contacted here:  m<dot>figura<at>ntlworld<dot>com   – hopefully you can follow this ‘bot’ avoiding presentation   <dot> is .   <at> is @
