Photographing Heritage ...

This 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. Although several buildings in Beihai and Shanghai have yet to be covered, this project is approaching completion.

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 (Jan 2015): The Land, City & Seascapes gallery has been divided into two with images from Greater China and those from elsewhere.  'The Southern Ports' (China) Gallery and relevant (Customs and British Consular) Special Collections have been updated for a visit to Beihai in November 2014.
