The artist

The son of a farmer, born in Kenya, the artist developed a love for Africa and its people. After graduating in Horticulture in the U.K. he moved in 1969 to reside and work on agricultural development in 9 developing countries first the Pacific (Fiji), then S.E. Asia and Africa.

Often living in remote areas, this gave an opportunity for insight and understanding of rural people, their culture and some of their developmental problems.

Digital photography became a hobby in 2004, with a first exhibition in Vietnam, May 2006.
