Image of the week…the arrest ..

22:04 23/06/2016

Day 4 I smell of goats. (To be explained another time) Today we visited the nearest town. Besa informed me it had a violent history. Around 1997 the gang culture and violence was rife. Apparently you’d lose your tyres if you parked there for more than 15 minutes. But once we arrived I found this hard […]

Here’s the post I pre wrote in the airport late Wed night… I suppose part of growing up is about letting things go. Taking that deep sigh and accepting that ‘It is what it is’. But the spoilt three year old in me is having a tantrum and as I watch the sun set over a glass of red […]

I have the lush excuse that my site was down last week so this weeks post will have more than one tale and a few pics to fill in the gaps. I wont reveal the image from this tale as it is still unpublished but will recall a specific story. The pastor and I text […]

Folkestone woes our tired limbs once again as we wave London adieu, tuck into some grub and catch up on life. Emily is a favourite of mine. Our moods are fortunately synced. We are up for a relaxed wander and as ever, a chance to escape the smoke. After negotiating the main roads like feral kittens […]

An apologetic editor from TIME calls me at 1 am to let me know the last min shoot tomorrow is on…she need not apologise, usually I’d fall straight back to sleep but I’m excited and drift off slowly looking forward to the rushed but intriguing shoot. All I know is that I am shooting the […]

image of the week…street scenes and talk shows

A short one before I hit my nest. I had the privilege of being a guest on a photo radio talk show this week with Michael Meinhardt. He got in touch explaining he would like to record an interview on Skype that would last about an hour. His manner was warm and curious and I […]

This week’s laaaaattttte post brings two very different images. One a tale can be told; the other will have to wait until it is released. As Rosie and I fish through my archive in an attempt to make sense of it I have found myself revisiting old shots. This one is from the school in […]

image of the week…I don’t want to know

What happened 3 seconds before and after? I often ask myself this when looking at a picture. It’s why I cherish stills. They have to ability to encourage confusion, suspicion and interpretation. The moments before and after the execution are sacred. Only a few know the ‘truth’. I don’t want to know; I want to wonder. […]

image of the week…be still

A short post before I fly into my nest. Fogged film was a disappointing result of my lab returns today. More annoyingly …what was on that roll?? Instead I decided to peek into my archive. I stumbled across this image from my Wales (test) shoot.   Forever drawn to shyness, Hannah captured my attention. As someone who rarely […]

Image of the week…new borns and fading light

After two glasses of Sauvignon Blanc I hesitated to press publish before some essential sobering sleep. So for this luxury I’ll post more than one. I heard a few days back that Malky gave birth. It seems such a short time ago I was with her in Israel, drinking coffee as she sported a weenie bump. […]
