John's current on-going projects include Blood Brothers (bare knuckle pit fighting), Levelling Up (a disturbing documentation of the decline of Britain's towns and cities), Generation Grime (an in-depth study of the northern grime and drill scene), and The Life and Times of Shuttle Athletic which sees him return to the Bradford Sunday football league. His critically-acclaimed book "Tbilisi Raw" went deep into the Georgian underground amongst football hooligans and skinheads.
