Most, if not all of my photographic life has been spent 'on the street' and soon into that life I decided there were certain areas that I wouldn't enter. Not geographic areas but ethical areas.
London has more than its fair share of people that are down and out, homeless, drink addicted, victims of Maggies 'care in the community' undertaking or just plainly bewildered, these are the people that all need help, not exploitation, not by me anyway.
I therefore find it a bit strong to be linked to the Paparazzi!
