Wild Beer and Westcombe Cheesemakers are both artisan producers, they’re also neighbours, working from adjoining plants. Their products might be different, but to my palate at least, cheese and beer compliment each other admirably, a delicious marriage of flavours.
One thing is true of both, they graft! There is a deep rooted belief in what they make, by people who love what they do, embodied by a core value that if something is worth making, it’s worth doing well, with imagination and creativity.

I have been working with People Against Poverty since 2012 following an Awareness trip to Iasi, a city in the east of Romania. There I documented ‘Way of Joy’, one of several projects the charity supports globally. In 2015 I joined the charity to document their Starlight Scholarship Scheme in Nepal which supports very poor families. The images shown here represent some of the people helped through each scheme, and show the environments in which they live their lives.

Hands up who likes to have fun? Run or Dye say "you become part of the rainbow", true enough as I photographed the frenzy of fun amongst the colourstorm of eco-friendly dye throwing.

The cloth mill at King's Stanley, just outside Stroud in England, with its brick-walled grandeur, marks it out as different from the usual stone of the Cotswolds. Dating back to 1813, it was designed to house spinning mules, looms, and other textile-manufacturing equipment, all powered by five water wheels fed from a mill pond nearby. Sadly it sits idle nowadays, devoid of any machinery, and awaits redevelopment.
Still in the hands of its family owners, these photographs archive this monument of a glorious age in British industry.
