Oxford OCA Student Exhibition

February 9, 2015


I heard from John Umney and Penny Watson that they have decided to include some work from Lifting the Curtain  in their forthcoming exhibition to take place in Oxford in May/June of this year. This is great news and my thanks to them both for their generosity. As I am away a lot over the coming […]

East London Project – Bethnal Green Shoot

October 2, 2014


I am getting close to the end of shooting for the East London Project. Whilst I fully expect to keep making images right up until the end, from now on this will be directed at trying to improve existing images, rather than exploring completely new sites. Last night I visited what might prove to be my […]

Bank Street Arts Installation

July 6, 2014


We spent a full day yesterday in Sheffield installing the [(6)] exhibition. I’ve learned a lot from this experience about setting up an exhibition (methods of fixing photographs and their relative cost and ease of installation), laying out an exhibition space (no substitute for visiting the location, aligning the midpoints of the pictures – 157 cm […]

East End Prospecting – Working Practice

Anna Fox – OCA Study Group

May 8, 2014


Yesterday I attended an OCA Study Group in the OCA Farnham, where Anna Fox gave a presentation about her photography. Prior to the event, we had been advised to review Anna’s website here and a recent interview she gave published on American Suburb X here. These also serve as a reference point for my thoughts on […]

More images for Umbra Sumus

April 24, 2014


Out again this morning shooting early. It is quite tricky to get the shots I am looking for. I was up at 3.45 am and in the car headed for London just after 4 am. An hour later I was parked up and on my way to my location for the morning – The Highway. […]
