METAMORPHOSIS video & book

Posted By admin / December, 4, 2014 / 0 comments

Following my Metamorphosis project at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford a couple of years ago, I am now in the process of publishing a book of the work with The Bardwell Press.  The book will be funded by a Kickstarter campaign we will launch early next year.  In preparation for this we have been working with Hellicar & Lewis and the improvisational quartet The Hermes Experiment to produce this short video:

ABERGAVENNY FOOD FESTIVAL 2014

Posted By admin / October, 20, 2014 / 0 comments

This September, I photographed Abergavenny’s award-winning Food Festival for the second time.  Growing every year, the festival has a vibrant atmosphere and, this year, included a night market and fireworks alongside the tempting food stalls, product demonstrations and children’s activities.   I had the chance to attend many of the demonstrations myself, and it was a pleasure to be able to capture the audience’s interest and enjoyment on film, preserving something of the festival’s animated and engaging atmosphere.  I also managed to catch a glimpse of River Cottage’s Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and Jay Rayner of the BBC’s One ShowMasterchef and BBC Radio 4’s Kitchen Cabinet, as well as the emerging talent Kizzy Crawford, a young Welsh singer showcased on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live which aired from the Abergavenny Food Festival itself.

‘WHAT IS FASHION?’ Project for Monmouthshire Museums and Vintage Vision

Posted By admin / November, 10, 2013 / 0 comments

I recently completed documenting the ‘What is Fashion?’ project for Monmouthshire Museums and the social enterprise Vintage Vision. The project aim was to celebrate our diverse costume collections of Abergavenny and Chepstow museums within their communities. A textile historian and conservators undertook assessment and conservation of the costume collany of he items from the collection were then used as inspiration in intergenerational sewing workshops within the community. Temporary exhibitions featuring the pieces made in the workshops, along side items from the collections were then set up at Abergavenny Museum, Chepstow museum and the Vintage Vision shop in Chepstow.

FORMAT International Photography Festival

Posted By admin / January, 8, 2013 / 0 comments

Several of my images were chosen by the curators for the biennale FORMAT International Photography Festival that took place in Derby UK between 8 March and 7 April 2013.

The main theme of FORMAT13 was centred on the FACTORY and mass production.

I lived in Oslo in Norway for 5 years and for some of that time worked for the Norwegian Employment service photographing in factories, building sites and offices. Norway is one of the wealthiest and technologically advanced countries in the world, and with lots of automation and very high health and safety standards etc, but physical work and production still has to be done just like many much poorer countries and often in very harsh conditions.

FORMAT is the UK’s leading international contemporary photography festival. Since it was founded in 2004 it has grown from strength to strength. FORMAT is curated by Louise Clements, Artistic Director of QUAD and FORMAT, and its patrons include the photographer Brian Griffin. The festival presented over 200 international artists through exhibitions, a conference, talks, tours, master classes, special events and participation projects. It was curated in multiple venues throughout the city, with QUAD at its centre.
