image of the week… monochrome poems

00:38 08/10/2016

Uh Oh…it’s Friday…. I’m late I’ve been shooting more black and white recently and really enjoying how it can offer a refreshing relief. Shapes and light become a different graphic puzzle to solve.It’s also helping me out when I’m in harsh sunlight. Possibly the most unusual but perfect location to teach some students on a […]

image of the week…seeing double

01:17 30/09/2016

Past the hour but does it count? THE CHASE These past two weeks have been a beautiful contrast. From roaming the Danube and being bitten by wild dogs before jumping on a Eurostar to cut shapes with friends, see some great art and explore Amsterdam. I’ve landed back in the smoke and browsing through my edit from […]

Bumper post for a crap attempt at writing one last Thursday. I started and abandoned it when my head kept jogging in tiredness. Strangers are easiest to shoot. You can unravel them rather than battle with what you know and what you don’t. Morgan and I spontaneously met on a balmy eve in Dalston. From […]

image(s) of the week…paddling pools revisited

22:56 02/09/2016

A day late….  As the rules state 2 images for this week East Tilbury stole our hearts many years ago. It was one of our first train roulette rides and an epic success. We spent the day hanging out in a suburban cul- de- sac with a group of young girls on roller skates.  Painted […]

image of the week…dreamy lakes

22:41 25/08/2016

The intense heat was relentless. As the crack of the broken passenger window let in a slight breeze I sucked in as much as I could.  Never one to moan about the summer weather I relished the feeling on my cheek and looked out to the beautiful Tuscan hills.  Soon we entered a small gravel […]

image of the week…memory loss

23:43 18/08/2016

In my sleepy state I can’t actually recall if I’ve already posted this image? The heat of the Albanian sun feels like a lifetime ago and I am itching to return. I’ll save a story for another Thursday when I am not so deliriously tired. Paul crossed my path as I walked with intent towards a lady hanging […]

Image of the week…Italians and Geese

23:22 13/08/2016

If only there were such thing as train miles. I am a Eurostar pro and my French is improving. More surprisingly so is my knowledge of geese. But first, a Tuscan tale. There were 5 tutors and 35 (ish) students. I had 4 eager pupils, each creative and unique. The loose structure of the workshop […]

image of the week ….double scoop

23:47 04/08/2016

I have reached a new level of slackness but the situation is a rare one. This is a double scoop from a tiny town in beautiful Tuscany where I am currently getting little sleep teaching a workshop. We are eating and drinking a little too well and the heat here is relentless, but the sunsets […]

image of the week… invisible alien

00:06 22/07/2016

I keep returning to this image. It seems the roll that I shot near the arrest held many moments within a small window. I’m used to feeling alien, the glistening stare from local faces that follow me as I stroll with a sense of acceptance. It seems where ever I travel I never blend in. […]

image of the week… how many men does it take to change the internet?

00:02 15/07/2016

The water stubbornly refuses to warm as my hand begins to go numb as I hold it under the shower. It’s early and the room is dark but the lights wont come on. A power cut I presume. Taking a deep breath I brave a rabbit wash hastily and dive into layers the other side to warm […]
