Outside, Looking in: A Personal Project

I have a background in photography and before I became interested in hand binding books I was a photography lecturer at a local college. I have always had an interest in the photobook format and the power it has to convey a message to any given audience. Outside, Looking in was the culmination of a number of years shooting street images in Cities across Europe and America. It has gone through a number of versions and I think this won't be the last... although it is getting there.
