Scattering

 

The fourth in an ongoing series exploring the relationships between Catch 22, its client base, and other agencies.
The film highlights the initial impact of the 1st. round of cuts in Public Sector in the UK. These cuts, imposed by the Coalition government, are ideologically driven and are having a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable sections of our society.

Resettling

 

Resettling is the third of three short films exploring the tensions that revolve around the professional relationships between Catch 22, its client base, and those agencies who intervene in their clients’ lives.
Catch 22 is a local charity with a national reach (in the UK) working with young people on the margins of the Criminal Justice System.
Although the Charity’s main concern remains with young people at risk, their work also engages with the resettlement needs of older, long term offenders.
Resettling explores these issues.

Still Unsettled

 

Still Unsettled deals with the relationship Catch 22 has with older teenagers caught in the Criminal Justice System.
This is the 2nd of four short films exploring the tensions that revolve around the professional relationships between Catch 22, its client base, and those agencies who intervene in their clients’ lives.
Catch 22 is a local charity with a national reach (in the UK) working with people on the margins of the Criminal justice System.

Jamie’s Story

 

Scattered Lives: Jamie’s Story is the first of four short films we made for Catch 22 in Northampton, UK.
Catch 22 is a local charity, with a national reach, working with people on the margins of the Criminal justice System. Jamie’s story engages with one family’s experiences. Through these, the film explores the tensions that revolve around the professional relationships Catch 22 have with its client base, and those agencies who intervene in their clients’ lives.

Some encounters

 

From 1982 until around 2002 I worked as a documentary/reportage photographer for a number of different publications and organisations; the Economist, der Speigel, Unions and the like.

In the process of putting this website together I’ve seen what I always thought, always knew. I’ve circled around the same issues: class & conflict. They’ve surfaced in different ways, certainly, but have always been there. I draw from what I know, from my own life experience.
