Photographing Heritage ...

The website is primarily devoted to two projects, both on historical buildings in China. The first is to photograph the many surviving foreign-inspired buildings in China's former treaty ports and leased territories; the second is to record Hong Kong's 114 Declared Monuments.

There is also a collection of landscapes and, for the ultimate landscape, one of panoramas. Finally, there is a small collection of people I have met on my travels.

Please contact me should you wish to use any of these images. I am keen to support heritage projects, historical publications and anything involving education.

Recent update: In March 2017, I revisited Shanghai to photograph certain buildings missed in the past. As a result, the Shanghai Gallery has been updated as have the British Consular Service and the Butterfield & Swire Special Collections. Back in Hong Kong, also in March, the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals published a book of my photographs of the Man Mo Temple in Sheung Wan - details are on the Books page.
