NEW JONAS EXHIBITION HELD IN BRISTOL
FLEETING ENCOUNTERS WITH TEN CATHEDRALS
Commissioned by Bristol Cathedral, this exhibition was on for May 2017. Taken from my cathedral series, it illustrated our transient relationship with surrounding culture, amid the glorious architecture of ten cathedrals.

WESTMINSTER ABBEY ARCHIVES PROJECT
I am working on a contemporary photo-documentary of the lives of those who work in and around Westminster Abbey for the Abbey's archives.
This involves unposed photographs of the Abbey staff and volunteers going about their daily lives, including much of the less publicised work that goes on behind the scenes. The project runs to early July 2017, after which we shall need to filter a wealth of material into a series that will make sense as a contribution to the Abbey's archives.
What a privilege to be doing this!
