Abstract exhibition

“Scratch” selected for inclusion in the London Photo Festival “Abstracts” exhibition being held at Harris+Hoole in Twickenham London for 3 months from 15 September

“We are delighted to announce the winners and exhibitors of our abstract photography competition. The standard was so high that we’ve opened up 5 more exhibition places!” – really pleased that my entry has made it into the exhibition

My image is of a vintage and well used leather covered desktop at a country manor in Norfolk; unclear what it was used for to have been marked in this way, and whether it ended up in this condition before or after being relegated to a stone outbuilding used by the servants – either way, full of character and history

Mirror Man

“Mirror Man” – a life size mannequin in the reception area of the gym I go to for physio, taken from a low angle to make it appear bigger than it actually is – has been selected for inclusion in the Loosen Art Gallery “Mannequins and Puppets” exhibition to be held at the Millepiani in Rome this November

“Chania International Photo festival has been created by Blank Wall Gallery. Its aim is to gather 350 photographers from around the world each year, turning the town of Chania into an international centre of artistic expression focusing on photography. At the same time, we aspire to make this festival the biggest photographic event, since this will be the first time that so many international artists will be exhibiting their work in Greece.”

It’s A Life… Is Live

On April 1, 2017, I participated in the “A Day In The Life of Manchester” project, a social experiment aimed at documenting 24 hours in the life of the modern day city.

The captured photos – including several of mine – have been used to create a mosaic paying “tribute to Mancunian icon, Emmeline Pankhurst, who received the most votes in our poll.

The wonderful piece of artwork has now been created by artist Nathan Wyburn and will be on proud display in Manchester Corn Exchange from tomorrow. It will remain there for the foreseeable future and you are all invited to view the artwork.

Most impressive how the artist has created the portrait using only the photos. I’m hoping to get to the Corn Exchange this Friday to view the real thing, in the meantime here’s how it looks, with one of my contributions highlighted (image courtesy of the organisers and included here with their permission):

The Party Is Over (it isn’t)

barrel manchester

“The Party Is Over” – a random barrel on Catlow Lane, Manchester at the end of the night – has been selected by the jury as one of the winners of the Chania International Photography Exhibition competition, to be printed and displayed in the exhibition at the Chania Center of the Mediterranean Architecture (CAM) from August 28 – September 5, 2018

This is the fourth image from my trip to Manchester with Chris in February to succeed in a competition, I’ve told him he should set up a business as a photography tour guide 🙂 He spotted this up a side street as we walked past and the scene was so perfect it only took one shot to capture it, probably my favourite image of the year so far
