This post presents my thoughts on the recent CONSTRUCTING WORLDS Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age Exhibition at the Barbican London. This exhibition closed in early January 2015.

February 6, 2015

0

I have been looking forward to this exhibition for some time. The concept of the exhibition has quite an overlap with my own work in East London. My own work does not deal with conflict, but does pose questions about what a photograph of a present day place can say, if anything, about what happened […]

Yesterday I attended an OCA Thames Valley meeting. It was a very worthwhile event. Sharon Boothroyd, my tutor, was there providing help and advice.

I attended an OCA Study Visit to the Brighton Biennial Festival recently. Other priorities meant that I could only attend for one day, but it was a full and excellent day.
