ARTIST'S STATEMENT //

I am a photojournalist and a street photographer. I was born in Malta in 1966 and from a young age took an interest in photography with the only available medium at the time which was film. When I was 18 I joined the armed forces. In 2008 I decided to take my photography to another level by enrolling for courses organised by the local photographic societies. In July 2009, soon after passing an accredited course in photography, I was appointed the Official Photographer for the Armed Forces of Malta. On retiring from the Armed Forces of Malta in 2010, I began a career as a freelance photographer and as a photojournalist for a leading newspaper. I have been shooting street photography for over ten years, organising street photography workshops since 2015. I also lecture locally on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. In November 2016 I organised my first solo exhibition called ‘Malta Street Life’ and also have had my works exhibited in Egypt, Greece, Italy, the United Kingdom, and in 2020 Japan.
