Journey to the Center of the World (2019) is a short documentary about a festival called ‘Ziro Festival of Music’ which takes place every year in the north east of India. I was privileged to travel there and work as a cinematographer on this project. I collaborated closely with director Haider Hussain, together we crafted the story.
While visiting Seoul and other places in South-Korea, I became obsessed with how the winter sun shaped my surroundings. I searched for quiet scenes in a generally bustling city, creating imagery that suggests a certain kind of peace and quiet that doesn’t actually exist beyond the four borders of its frame.

Looking at her is an ongoing series of photos that I take of my girlfriend. As she is frequently around me, there are many photographical occasions that would have gone wasted were it not for her always being ready to stand in as a model. Basically, instead of me being an “Instagram boyfriend”, she has found herself in the position of the “photographer’s girlfriend”.

In 2017 I directed, shot and edited this commercial video for a start-up called VOGSY. They created a useful project management tool that works with Google’s G-suite, about which I created a commercial that promotes their product in a fun and easy going way.
Before it died an untimely death in a foolish attempt to repair it’s self-timer function, my Ricoh 500G 35mm camera witnessed some nice scenes. Here’s a collection.
