In an attempt at catharsis, which only lead to sifting through hundreds of pictures. Here are my selected highlights of 2011.
It’s been an interesting year which has seen my workload shift from news to features and commercial work. The selection of pictures here are the ones I’m proud of and that stood out to me either because of their subject matter or the environment in which they were shot.
I chose not to include the soul destroying wait outside News International for Rupert Murdoch during the hacking scandal; mainly because I doubt you would be interested in a wrinkly old man!
I did include a picture from the centre of the track at Epsom Derby; I shot this for the Independent. It’s was a completely different take on the toffs in hats synonymous with race days and a bit closer to origional idea of the Derby, which was open to “the people”.
Looking back through these, I really appreciate the opportunities I’ve had this year. I’ve traveled to 12 countries and met some truly inspirational people. The job that stands out to me is meeting the Batwa and Street children of Burundi which will stay with me forever.
I’d seen a couple of other Photographers do similar retrospectives of the year which prompted me to do mine. Here are posts from AFP Photographer Leon Neal and The Telegraphs Christopher Pledger.
Thanks for looking and stay tuned again for next year.
