“Whilst circling around photographing people, I like to get involved myself and often bet on the races, so this certainly helps keep my photography fairly discreet and, of course, during the race itself most people are naturally caught up with the action on the track. Everyone is usually having a good time, so they tend not to worry about being photographed, and when a few have asked what I’m doing, they are usually just relieved I am not from the press.”
“The Gamblers” by Martin Amis will be published by RRB PhotoBooks on April 30.
