His chief interests lie in photography, architecture and history and he combines all three in his lecturing career. He has taught at University College London, since 1997 and became a NADFAS lecturer in 2003. He is a member of the Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography and an exhibition of his own photographs has been staged at UCL. In an attempt to gain a deeper understanding of the skills of some great photographers of the past, he has begun to work with a pre-War Leica camera, as used by his great hero, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and many others.
Women Behind the Lens: outstanding female photographers and their contribution to the art of photography
The work of women photographers has often been unfairly neglected> this lecture seeks to correct that by examining the contribution of three British practitioners: Julia Cameron, a Victorian pioneer; Jane Brown, a brilliant portraitist; and Fay Godwin, who excelled in landscape photography. We also explore the work of two highly influential Americans: Dorothea Lange, who excelled in documentary images and Annie Leibovitz, who continues to both surprise and delight her audience.
