A current portrait of a historic town.

    Started in 2014, this project, only half done, is attempting to bring together everything in Stratford-upon-Avon. I'm constantly taking hundreds of images for this project so this web page is a kind of showcase of the best, with words and images that will not make it into the final documentary.

    Stratford-upon-Avon, a town known from the outside as Shakespeare's town and as such it relies on tourist numbers. Within, everyone knows everyone. Recurring faces are a regularity at events.

    It's large for a town and as such there are a great number of things that happen people miss. Using another thing Stratford is known for as an example; Swans. When poorly people in the town know to call Ex Mayor Cyril Bennis who, voluntarily along with his wife and a friend or two along the way, has taken care of them since 1978. So I'm documenting these things and telling Stratford's current story to people outside the town.

    I'm trying to see if it's possible for me (as a new documentary photographer) to document the whole town.
