In 2017 I will be publishing a new zine on the life and work of male sex worker and political activist Thierry Schaffauser.

I’ve been documenting Thierry since 2010 looking at the social, economic and political issues facing him. A new edit of pictures shot between 2010 and 2012 are in my picture library. Later this month I will be spending time with Thierry in Paris to bring the project up to date and looking at the locations and spaces that he first used when he was a young sex worker for the new zine.
