His next book was a collaboration with Mandeep Samra and Paul Huxtable about Huddersfield's connection with Sound System Culture.
More info on that book and in fact all of Al's books you can find out more here:
Al's latest project is about the Jamaican graphic artist Wilfred Limonious who produced some of the most iconic dancehall artwork from the 1980's. The book In Fine Style is a collaboration with Canadian writer Christopher Bateman. Al popped into the studio to shoot the book ahead of it's launch and exhibition.
It's always a pleasure to photograph Al's books and hear about his latest projects. He's well worth investigating further if you're not familiar with his work:
