Henley Royal Regatta 2015

The Henley Royal Regatta has been a fixture on the English social calendar since 1839. This famous sporting event is not just a series of races, but also a delightful trip back to Edwardian times.  The men wear old school blazers and the women wear dresses covering their knees.

Michael has been photographing the Regatta since 2005 and not one year has been the same. The culture of the event is both fascinating and visually distinctive. Just as each year the Regatta has held different surprises for Michael, it has also shown the changes in his photography.

Michael is working on a book of his years covering the Henley Royal Regatta.
