A few months ago I was strolling through a fancy shopping area in Hong Kong, when a realisation hit me: I don’t want to buy anything at all!

There, my art resides on life support, hidden away from anyone’s eyes to see. How sad. Here I explain why I now have decided give away all my photographs for free – and show your where you can go to download my artwork!

I’ve always enjoyed visual expressions of creativity. But until recently, photography has monopolised my creative outputs, effectively blocking other creative pursuits from entering the picture (no pun intended). That’s no longer the case. As part of my Year of Learning project, I spent February trying to teach myself the very basics of graphic design. By the time February was over, I … Read More
