I am a photographer. I do not consider myself an artist. History will make that decision. Henri Cartier Bresson said that photography was the only medium which could capture a moment and I think that is what has fascinated me about photography since i made my first silver gelatin print with my father in the bathroom of my parents flat 59 years ago.
A chance meeting with a Ukrainian family in Crete in 2006 led me to visit Ukraine firstly in January 2007, a mild winter of only -10C. I have visited Ukraine on six occasions and until 2011 I only used Leica film cameras.
I now also use Fuji X cameras. In April 2015 , while I was back in Kiev Joe Mullholland exhibited his selection of my Ukrainian archive which he entitled "A Window on Ukraine" and produced an excellent brochure. I have made many friends in Ukraine and the archive is a major ongoing project. I always know that I can turn up at the Kupidon bar on Pushkinska Street and be greeted by friends.
