DIGITAL PHOTO ART LTD company closure

It is with sadness that I announce the forthcoming closure of my company. The previous blog post reports the direction my work has taken since attending Asim Rafiqui's workshop: 'Rethinking the Photo Project' with NOOR, which was part of the Fotografia Europe 2015 conference in Italy. This direction is humanitarian, not for profit and fits more closely to my former practice as a therapist and researcher. For these reasons it is not compatible with a commercial business. Those who are interested can access my current work at the following website:

Translating Humanitarian Emergency into Medical Aid in Syria

BIPP feature article

The British Institute for Professional Photography featured my humanitarian work documenting medical aid to Syria in the Photographer magazine, August 2018. This is a difficult subject that many do not attempt to cover and turn away, but those affected really do appreciate all the efforts of those who try. So my sincere thanks to Jonathan Briggs, editor and the BIPP for the thoughtful and closely observed way in which this project has been conveyed to the membership.

NOOR at fotografia europea 2015 - italy

NOOR Images was the guest of this year's festival at Reggio Emilia in Italy 15-17th May and I was delighted to be part of a theoretical workshop under the guidance of photojournalist:  

Asim Rafiqui - Rethinking the Photo Project

Asim was truly inspiring in presenting his contemporary view of photojournalism. His teaching opened doors to many new ideas about complex, multilayered projects that has taken me on a whole new photographic journey and relates more closely to my practice as a therapist and researcher. So it is now a case of watch this space!

RPS Members' Biennial 2015 Touring Dates

I was awarded my licentiate as a documentary portraitist by the British Institute of Professional Photography on 4th November for a portfolio of images entitled 'Living Carnival.' This project tracks a male couple who attend Venice Carnival every year as they put together their costumes and refine their persona for the fantasy world they inhabit during carnival.

Wonderful feedback from the panel inspired me to continue with this project again this year, mount an exhibition and publish the book!
