so far it’a been a helluva busy year so i’ve been very quiet on the online front. but here’s something I can share, a little interview i just did for Kaltblut Magazine
My photographs have been included in a new book called “Lo-fi Photo Fun!” by Adam Bronkhorst and it’s all about (you guessed it!) Lo-fi photography. A selection of my images have been chosen to illustrate examples of pinhole photographs. Thanks for the accolade Adam, I’m really looking forward to receiving my copy!
You can get yours from Amazon. Here’s some blurb:
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.
20 international artists photographers: americans, asians, and europeans will be presented from 14 to 31 December 2011 in Lyon.
The two main promoters of the event, Charles BONJOUR & Manuel Javier RICHY gather here the strong, sensitive, and relevant artworks whose only the web interface allows a glimpse at.

Starting from tomorrow one of my photos is going to be on display in the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill. Taken as a contribution to Lucy Phillips’ What Cannot Be Seen project, her exhibition will be shown during the De La Warr’s Nod to Cage season. If you get the chance then do go over and take a look, I have been informed that my photo is going to big!
some more details about the exhibition below:
19 May – 5 June / Friday 27 May (Random Friday)
Lucy Phillips what cannot be seen
Ongoing project (started 2010)
Inkjet prints from scanned photographic paper negatives, handwritten and typed texts, printouts of emails. (in display cases) original paper negatives, handmade matchbox pinhole cameras, handwritten and typed texts and letters, related ephemera.
what cannot be seen is an attempt to create a visual and textual archive of the unseen by returning to the fundamentals of photographic image making. Inspired by the artist’s own experiments with pinhole photography and French artist Sophie Calle’s use of the camera as a covert device, Phillips constructed 20 pinhole cameras from matchboxes and invited people to take part in a postal photography project via a Facebook status update. See Lucy Phillips’ what cannot be seen at the next Random Friday on 27 May
