Hong Kong - Between the Shadows

Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places on the planet. Standing on the city streets, it is all but impossible to be alone. Yet, hiding in the shadows of this chaos are countless moments of serene isolation.


Inside the Weekly Market that Feeds Hanoi

This series was published on Fodors in October 2018.

Hanoi is well known for its vibrant, busy streets that provide a plethora of ways to stimulate the adventurous traveler’s senses. Yet, while most of the city’s visitors are safely tucked up in bed, an extravaganza like no other is developing under the cover of night. From 2 a.m. onwards, seven days a week, Hanoi’s restaurateurs, food retailers and street vendors flock to the sprawling Long Bien market complex. Over 1,200 stalls, lockups, and trucks sell wholesale fruit, vegetables, and fish by the crate. By 5 am, as the sun breaks over the horizon, the market is complete pandemonium. Come midday, however, the crowds have dispersed and peace has returned to the area. The daily cycle of boom and bust allows visitors who are willing to skip some shut-eye to witness the compelling, truly Vietnamese story of the Long Bien market.


In the Presence of Absence

In May of 2017, I took my terminally ill father to Armenia, his cultural homeland and a place in which he had never set foot. As we explored Armenia’s majestic landscapes and ancient historical sites, there was an unspoken, yet palpable sense that this was our last journey together.

He would pass away just two months after our return. In documenting the final months of my father’s life in this way, this series explores how knowledge of our own mortality, and later the presence of absence itself, affects our perception of the world around us.

This series was shortlisted for the Hellerau Photography Awards 2018, held in Dresden, Germany.


Hanoi - A view from the street

Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi, is a place rich in history and tradition. The city’s visitors are treated to a plethora of exciting items to add to their itinerary. Yet, it is the serendipitous moments that occur in passing, as one wonders the chaotic, vibrant streets, that reveal the most about this wonderful, surreal place and its unique people.


The Nag's Head Market

London’s streets are changing. Gleaming monoliths of glass and steel are replacing dilapidated retail spaces, filled with chain stores who spend millions developing brands that emulate the ‘local charm’ of the independent businesses they replace. Even the markets, once the staple of working class London, have become the domain of the middle class yuppie.

Yet, tucked away in a discreet corner of Holloway, North London, is a market which so far seems to have escaped the ominous march of gentrification. The Nag’s Head Covered Market, on Seven Sisters road is a small collection of around 60 stalls, both temporary and permanent, that has been in the area for 25 years.

I spent two months documenting the comings and goings of life in the market. What I witnessed was a rare thing in today’s London: genuine humanity, warts and all.
