“I’ve always been fascinated by people and what drives their actions. A camera is the perfect tool to study human nature. Our reaction to a camera pointed in our face reveals a lot about us but it’s even more telling when we are unaware of it.

Whether I’m documenting power struggles between oppressive governments and marginalised groups or capturing random elements colliding in a bustling cityscape or anything in between, the common elements are the streets on which these stories play out and the simple fact that we are all the same. We all smile, cry, display anger, passion or empathy, show emotion, no matter what background, story or perspective we come from.”

Luke’s work has been published in The Guardian and New Yorker Magazine, and exhibited at the Royal United Services Institute in association with NATO. His work was also featured in two group shows at Head On Photo Festival in Sydney, Australia in 2015.
