Forgotten Little Creatures

Forgotten little creatures is an exciting project that celebrates all the smaller things that we have around us bringing together creative photography and science facts. By encouraging others to find and understand the importance of these smaller species I hope that they will help protect them and their habitats for future generations to enjoy and the health of our local ecosystem.

This is no ordinary photographic project, the images are more artistic aimed at bringing out characters and details of my subjects encouraging people to look different at the amphibians, reptiles, invertebrates and plants we have around us here in the UK and more specifically everything is taken within 40 miles of my home in Frome.

Who are the Forgotten Little Creatures?

These are the plants, invertebrates, amphibians and reptiles which are often feared, ignored, overlooked and even forgotten about despite the important role they play in their habitats. I hope to widen the appreciation of them and show their beauty and characters along with demonstrating the wide variety we all have on our doorsteps.

Why I believe this project is important

During my research and photography of a wide range of little creatures near my home it became very clear there is a lack of media coverage - particularly positive coverage - of them and the critical roles they play in maintaining healthy ecosystems not to mention just how fascinating they can be.

This first part of the project will culminate in an exhibition with an accompanying book and a series of talks all about the project, the stories behind the images, interesting scientific facts about my subjects and all the fun anecdotes of my experiences working on this project.

I am absolutely delighted to share that the book is being published by Redfern Natural History Productions Limited and the exhibition will be at the Royal Bath Literary and Scientific Institution in Queen Square, Bath from Thursday 22nd February through to Saturday 17th March 2018.

A huge thank you to everyone who supported the project through Crowdfunder, every little really does help in putting on the exhibition and printing the book. My Crowdfunder project has now finished and I have split the book and the exhibition into separate parts. The book is available to pre-order through "The Book" gallery below and I have added a "Sponsor A Print" gallery where there are a selection of images that will be printed on aluminium and displayed in the exhibition that are available for individuals or a company to sponsor, for more details please check out the gallery.

If you are interested in hosting one of the talks please do get in touch, these are 90 minute presentations with a break half way through.
