Photographing Heritage ...

The website is largely devoted to two projects, both involving historical buildings in China. The first is to photograph the many surviving foreign-inspired buildings in China's former treaty ports and leased territories.  This project is approaching completion ... at last!

The second is to record Hong Kong's 108 Declared Monuments. The collection continues to expand.

There is also a collection of landscapes and, for the ultimate landscape, one of panorama images. 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.

Latest update (June 2015): The 'Shanghai' Gallery (China's Old Treaty Ports) and relevant Special Collections (i.e. all except the Tientsin Country Club) have been updated for a visit to the city in April.  A new book, "The Tung Wah Museum".  The Tientsin Country Club Collection has additional images from the 1930's.
