The Photocopy Club’s brand new exhibition project has now been announced, and this time we are giving you the chance to exhibit your work in both the UK and South Africa in October and November. All you need to do is make a collective with 3 or more people and together make a photographic…

I’ve been mentoring some great photography students over the past year to photography London Sinfonietta Orchestra. They’ve produced some wonderful images. On Friday we are exhibiting their work. Everyone welcome!

Dad died nearly 5 years ago and yesterday more than 6000 people felt his love. WOW. It’s so wonderful that he’s still fulfilling his mission. And I’m so proud that he will always be a part of me.

I’m really pleased to be talking about Britain loves Africa on Thursday at Photo forum. Go to photo forum site.

Niall McDiarmid will also be speaking about his wonderful portrait work.

Struggling to let go of this image in my latest very small edit of Britain Loves Africa: Have a look.

So many that are hard to loose, but this one perhaps only speaks to me. I had swam in this spot in Lake Victoria (Uganda) the previous night at the end of what felt like an eric journey to nowhere. I was on an ill-advised mission to see an old friend/lover/proper nutcase who I hadn’t seen for 7 years. He thought we might take off where we ended all those years ago, but I found the black lake more appealing. To the soundtrack of frog-song that night-swim was a sweet antidote to my journey. The next morning I wanted to see where we’d swam. Now instead of black it was many many shades of green, and we swam again. 

I’m in Magenta’s 10th Anniversary Book! Highlighted among their best UK photographers. Curated by Aaron Schuman. Some seriously good work in there, so I am honored. Have a look.

I’m super happy that Britain Loves Africa is featured on Firecracker this month. This latest edit is heading towards the poetic and away from the informative. I’m feeling it. Features a mix of all the families I’ve shot in 2012 and 2014.

NICE.

Taking the fear out funerals, Leverton & Sons Open Day.

Sun May 18th, noon to 5pm

image

Leverton & Sons will be opening their doors for the first time in 225 years with a full day of fascinating talks, art and activities. At 1:00pm the topic is ‘Documenting Death’: three photographers, Briony Campbell, Priscilla Etienne and Miranda Hutton will show us how photography enters the intimate world of death. At 3:00 we’ll be asking the question; “What on earth are we doing with death?’:  philosopher academics David Waters (‘The School of Life’) and Mark Cousins (Columbia University and The Architectural Association) will be discussing how in a secular age we can manage death and loss.

Additionally you can meet a funeral director, explore a photography exhibition, watch documentary films, see Jake the Poet perform, delve into the ledgers of noteable funerals (George Orwell, Sylvia Plath and Anna Freud among others), take a limousine ride, enjoy the BBQ food, and learn how to carry a coffin properly!

All welcome. This is a free event (including free BBQ) at Leverton & Sons - 212 Eversholt Street NW1 1BD, near Mornington Crescent tube. Part of Dying Matters Awareness Week.
