Some initial rough work planning a peice based on 2015 explorers of the year - the team of rangers at virunga national park. I've been inspired by the dedication and will power shown to defy the odds. I look to explore their stories and the issues they face in conserving not just the mountain gorrillas, but virunga, and the future of the Congo
I'm currently away in Thailand so here's a few reportage images, it's not all lying by the beach drinking Pina Coladas...
After doing lots of research for my final year university project, a picture book on famous explorer David Livingstone I came across the works of the late Irving Penn. His images hold fascinating characters and I really enjoyed getting the stark contrasts struck down in graphite!
Just completed an exciting project off based on the stories of Baron Munchausen, he's bit of a crazy man. Excited to see the work of the other contributors. Heres a few sneaky crops and shots.
Some recent works in progress
Rough for a personal project on pub signs.
