Bio

(currently based in Barcelona)

When I started working as a photographer, in London in 1999, it was just another medium for me to illustrate my fantasies. I started doing editorial work, for the likes of The Guardian, The Sunday Times Magazine and Penguin Publishers, and continued to work with Spanish magazines after moving to Barcelona in 2003. By that stage, my photographs had become a tool for me to express my curiosity for the world (and we live in a very curious world indeed). But mainly — and this is most visible in personal projects like “Albino Beauty”, “Pink Dreams” and “Life as a Transsexual” — photography for me is about the relationship between dreams and reality, both in others and myself. By learning about other people’s struggles, with identity, innocence, prejudice and beauty, I learn about my own. Photography is what connects me to the outside world.
