I was born in London, England in 1965. I started my photography career in the early 1990s as a freelancer for the Guardian and Observer newspapers. Over the course of the decade, he has documented the burgeoning Environmental and Animal Rights Protest movements. In 1999, I turned my attention to the Balkans covering the war in Kosovo. In late 1999, I moved to Kosovo, which I used as a base to cover events throughout Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East. In 2005, I moved to New York, where I lived for 5 years. I currently live in London with my wife and two children.
I am a regular contributor to the New York Times and his work has been widely published in magazines such as Newsweek, Time, Stern, Geo, Paris Match, Der Spiegel, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Independent Magazine, Mother Jones, Mare and Granta.
