In 2015 I was granted permission to shadow-photograph MP Nia Griffith as she went about her Parliamentary duties and constituency visits.
From the 5th until 31st August, I captured many of the engagements of this extraordinarily busy, committed, and energetic woman. It was an amazing opportunity to capture the working life of my MP.
The finale of my project was an invitation to tour the Houses of Parliament and lunch on the terrace overlooking the Thames. A remarkable day, and a fitting end to a fascinating journey.
