image of the week …seeing Dad

23:28 12/01/2017

Unraveling a subject is so much easier when they are a stranger. Dad and I started taking pictures of each other last year when I treated myself to the Wista. It has become an organic way to get to know each other a bit better and have some fun. Last weekend my living room table […]

Image of the week…All for nuthin

23:44 06/01/2017

“Who’s idea was it to come to Texas anyway?” I avoid the question. 21 days and over 2000 miles later I still don’t know the answer. The working title of our trip ‘All for nuthin’ gained a stronger relevance as the days passed. Nevertheless, the true value of any trip is the adventure. “Something will […]

image of the week…Italian games

23:10 29/12/2016

Before I tuck myself in for the night I’ll throw a few frames from Italy your way. The sun was intense as we targeted a local village about an hour from base. I strolled the two main ‘high streets’ expecting to find little inspiration until I saw a large hall with a cafe inside. I […]

image of the week…Thanks for the hate

17:05 22/12/2016

  I recently heard that Krzysztof Kieślowski’s retired when he felt he had peaked and succeeded. He wanted to avoid the rejection of critics and the inevitable downfall of his career. He believed that like all successful artists, he would eventually have to plummet into failure. Pleasing the trends as an artist doesn’t make any sense […]

images of the week..they say running away isn’t the answer…

23:54 15/12/2016

But I still think it may be…. I’ve been back less than two weeks and I feel ready to climb aboard a plane. The banality of Christmas sends me into a coma. I can’t take the slow pace colliding with the consumerist frantic rush …where has this moaning rant come from…I sound like scrooge? Has the once […]

image of the week – past lives

00:55 02/12/2016

There are so many tales from Texas I am yearning to vent but until I’ve got my eyes over the film I’ll hold off on the stories. In the mean time I was looking back at some images from the ‘Our lives’ series and thought I would post a few that didn’t make the final […]

image(s) of the week… offline in Texas

04:12 21/11/2016

This mammoth bed is the size of my room at home and I now have Wi-Fi; it turns out the highway budget motels are totally hit and miss. I’m on the road in Texas and wishing I could do this forever. A chilled routine of strolling the vast state left me without connection to post […]

Image of the week..half a tale from Texas

05:32 11/11/2016

I post this in haste before the wifi connection fails again. For now, Texas is a quiet place despite the US drama and I’m seated at an old wooden desk in a seedy motel room off the highway. The lighting is dim, the bedspread loud and Alberto the receptionist is attending to my every need. […]

Image of the week…I fell in the woods

03:38 04/11/2016

The warmly lit, remote pub held a handful of locals who all glanced over to see a clear Londoner stroll in and order a glass of red. Amongst the smell of roast dinners and a crackling fire I sat down at a large wooden table. With no shame but ample self-awareness I opened my dark tent and […]

images of the week…double trouble

23:57 28/10/2016

Time is evaporating. My to do list of to do lists grows and I’m treading the London tide. I’ll make this a bumper post to excuse my silence over these past two Thursdays. The first image is from a shoot for the guardian weekend.  ” Sometimes we wake up and we’ve had the same dream” […]
