Paul Wenham-Clarke

What links his work is a strong desire to communicate with the public on social and environmental issues that he feels passionate about. Whether it is loss of human and animal life on our roads, or the terrible plight of our homeless, or as in the case of his latest book Urban Gypsies a community fighting to protect its cultural identity. His documentary work often asks us to consider topics that are virtually on our doorstep.
