'Photography isn't looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.'
The fundamental thing is the search after truth and putting a love and reverence for the subject before self-expression.
'I think if I ever get satisfied, I'll have to stop. It's the frustration that drives you.'
I've just returned from another trip to Tanzania with PiXL International. This organisation's work with secondary school head teachers is really making a difference to the life chances of students leaving school.
Returning each year it has also been fascinating to see the changes that development and urbanisation have brought to the Rukwa region.
I'm very pleased to be starting a portrait project with this organisation for their fascinating oral histories work http://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/about/latest-research/oral-history-project. I'm looking forward to meeting the interviewers next week.
