I thought i had better quickly post this before it was too late! After having a major stress out where my work almost didn’t arrive, I am pleased to say that one of my images is currently being shown in the FÉROCES Festival de Photographie Internationale 2011 in Lyon, France. It is a pleasure to be invited alongside so many other artists who’s work I admire. If you are able to go here is some information :
FÉROCES Festival de Photographie Internationale 2011 is an overview of selected International Photography today.
It was born of a common desire among artists, photographers and curators to showcase to a broad public most creative contemporary aspects, and its most prominent authors, present and becoming.

The Robot Heart have just released their first album, self titled: The Robot Heart, on Bleeding Heart Recordings. This lovely piece of packaging features my photographs on both the cover as well as on the inside.
The first time i saw the Robot Heart perform a few years ago, i had just received the sad news that a couple of friends of mine had died earlier that day in a tragic accident. That gig was particularly powerful to me, as their haunting melodies and 4-part harmonies strongly resonated with the way i was feeling. So i was pleased when I was later asked to do a photoshoot with them, the results of which can be seen here
Their album is available to buy from the Record Store who are also offering limited numbers of signed copies with a free EP.
Good luck Robots! I wish you guys all the success with the album xxx
