Behind the scenes

One of my favourite things to photograph for the V&A are the family performances. They are fun and joyus and interactive and you'll love them even if you're not age appropriate.

Below are a few behind the scenes images from a pop-up performance covered for them about Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and a dog called Jim.

Fun children portraits

From time to time I go back through my V&A photos just to smile and get a feel good mood. Below some fun portraits from past events I covered for the museum.

Documenting Malene Hartmann Rasmussen’s clay workshop for the V&A

I love documenting the school and family workshops at the V&A, they're always fun and insightful.

One workshop I particularly enjoyed was held by the Danish ceramic artist Malene Hartmann Rasmussen. Inspired by one of Malene's projects, the children learned to create their own surreal troll masks. 

Below, a few images from the session.
