mobiles, music and merriment ... fun on the streets

There is a lot of humour on the streets. It's not all angst and loneliness. These street photos and candids were all specially taken for the book.

The collection focuses on three closely related themes; mobiles phones and their ubiquitousness in modern life, music, and the everyday fun seen on the streets. 

Successful submission for the LRPS (Licentiate) Distinction of the Royal Photographic Society.

smile ... a journey with the children of the world

During a vacation trip to Cambodia in 1994, we fell in love with the country and its people. But we were especially touched by the impact on children in areas still controlled by the Khmer Rouge, almost twenty years after "Year Zero". Education and health care were rudimentary. In 1999 we were lucky enough to find a way to help, via a school building and teacher training program started by Save the Children. From the early pilots, this is now a vibrant program covering hundreds of schools and thousands of children. Our personal journey led us to other countries, meeting hundreds of children, many of whom are pictured in this book. We are pleased to donate proceeds of this book to Save the Children.
