Alpining


Fulham, London

I often get asked how long my installations last on the streets - but apart from a few exceptions, I don’t often check them and so don’t really know. This one, shot as part of a commission for NZZ Folio (a Swiss broadsheet supplement) is one of those exceptions. I shot it in September 2013 and two months later it was still intact, with one little intruder. A month after that and everything was still there too. The last time I passed by was March 2014, a few weeks ago, and all but one of the figures remained (with another little intruder - see if you can spot him!).
Which is all a round-about way of saying; sometimes the installations last quite a while!

Fez








I don't often post images of installations that are created for display in a gallery setting, so here are a few of one created at the end of 2013 for an exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey.

Why is it so hard to find a job? - Construction Worker























Université de Nanterre, Paris, France

I've just got back from Paris where I was helping to promote ReAct Paris, a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%. 

I was leaving miniature workers hidden around the streets of Paris and asking the question "Why is it so hard to find a job?"


The following installations were all shot in Paris for the event. 


Find out more about the conference at

Hide and Seek






Hop, Skip and Jump



Play Fighting


Wandsworth Common, London


I was humbled to be asked to work with War Child, the charity who support children affected by war around the world. The three installations above were created for 20 Years of War Child, a new exhibition celebrating 20 years of the charity's work. The show is being staged at The British Music Experience museum of popular music at the O2 in London, and will feature my works alongside photography and album artwork showcasing War Child's long-running collaboration with the great and good of the music industry. The exhibition opens on Tuesday 19th February and runs until 28th March.

Stroll



Gorky Park, Moscow, Russia


Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great festive season and wish you all the best for 2013!















I recently participated in the Question and Answer series for BetteryMagazine.com, in which one creative person asks another a question about the transformation of our cities. In my case I was paired with the singer Nelly Furtado who asked "The bigger, the better - Is that also true of cities?" You can read my reply here as well as see some more of my work.
