The auditing company Ernst & Young organises this event at Excel for all their UK staff, several thousand in total. It’s a day of directional corporate pep-talks and was the most visual event I photographed on this project, given that the world of accountancy is one of the dullest. Otherwise, our journeys together have taken us to South America, the Indian Ocean and Beckton sub-station.
Richard Baker studied Documentary Photography in the mid-80s at Newport College of Art and has been working for magazines and corporate designers since then. He hooked up various agencies – most of whom are now extinct – but since 2005 has been representing himself with an archive presence at Corbis and Alamy, while freelancing for clients like the Guardian Weekend, Telegraph Saturday Magazine, Flair, ESPN and Time Magazine.
More recently he photographed and wrote a book about the RAF’s Aerobatic team the Red Arrows, which was published in 2005 (ISBN 1-85443-217-6). Last year Richard took part in ‘UK at Home’ a book sponsored by Ikea and Google about Britons’ idea of living space, which appears in early April 08.
Photographer since 1985, EPUK member since 2007.
