Last week I learnt that Southern Water regularly releases untreated sewage onto these beautiful beaches as reported in the documentary Our Troubled Rivers. Self-regulated dumping by water companies, together with storm runoff from livestock farms, means beaches and designated bathing waters are often closed, and disgracefully all our rivers are now polluted.

To right this desperate situation and put a stop to profiteering and abuse of our vital natural resource, the activist group SOSWhitstable are urgently petitioning the government to bring the care of our water back into public ownership.

Similarly Surfers Against Sewage ask us to sign their Dirty Money petition. Both groups hope that with re-reinvestment and upgrades the water industry will have the resources to nurse our ailing natural environment back to good health.

Horrible fact that in 2021 alone, water companies released effluence into English and Welsh waterways amounting to 25 years of untreated sewage.

Meanwhile my thanks to the kind and generous people of Tankerton and Whitstable, The Marine Hotel, and this super team :

I am completely honored, and more than excited, to be the featured artist of the current Photo London magazine. Previous artists include Sarah Moon and Stephen Shore, both of whom are personal photography heroes.

My sincere thanks to Photo London, for including me in their publication, the Association of Photographers, for the nomination, and Kirsty Mackay for her curatorial eye.

The magazine includes an interview, a curated selection of works, and a behind the scenes video from a photo shoot with girl band Bananarama. You can view or download the complete issue here.

I photographed Alex Jones for Stella magazine in June 2020, my first commissioned shoot since the beginning of lockdown.  Working in the #newnormal means temperature checks, face masks, face visors, individual computer screens, social distancing and the constant application of hand gel.  Alex, who has been working throughout lockdown, was completely at ease with all these changes.  A calm, consummate professional, and an absolute pleasure to meet and photograph.  You can read the full feature here
