I was asked to respond to some of the history of Tedder House in Llandudno for Ideas People Places, working alongside Marc Rees, Lisa Carter and Helfa Gelf. Now standing empty stripped back to the bare bricks, all the that remains of the old R.A.F.A Club are stories and a few artefacts amongst the survivingContinue reading “Manau Coll | Lost Spaces”
I found this packet addressed to my Granddad‘s house in Hough Green, Widnes in the loft at my Mum and Dad’s, it contained a 16mm cine film. It did not look like it had ever been viewed, it is the perfect time capsule. I’m not sure who is filming, I guess it is him but at one point he disappears into the darkContinue reading “1975 Cine Film”
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the artist Tim Pugh over the last few months. Always intrigued and captured by meticulous patterns he works with. I took the opportunity to capture his tools of his craft in work in progress. So seeing the burst of light come through the window I had to captureContinue reading “A Room With A Pugh…”
I keep my eye wide open all the time because your mine I walk the line as Johnny Cash once sang. From the start of my photography I have always liked my eyes to be pulled into a picture. The visual split second Journey. Where will it take you?
This is a series of work that took on a Canon Demi film Camera. It’s a half frame camera so from 36 images you get 72. It was a rather considered piece in that sense. It was a total conceptual idea based around the object we all recognise. The Anthony Gormley‘s statues at Crosby. IContinue reading “Crosby Stills And Nash”
Adding Photography to music is something that really interests me. I was approached by Joel Cockrill to work on a project with my images to his music. I think the music changes the feel of work. What do you think? The work is from three bodies of work. The now demolished car park from Get Carter in Gateshead called Trinity Square.Continue reading “Will it Change your View”
On it rumbles… I feel like I’m really getting behind this concept. I wanted to draw on something that would be so far from my creative spectrum as possible. I’m working in fiction what if. Maybe this is the inner depth of my minds self preservation. Which generally makes me pretty boring. I’m still thinking what official direction this goingContinue reading “Your Last Breath #6”
Grid Iron 2 is my second collection of metal grills and vent covers. Its funny im getting some really funny looks off people as I lean to the floor camera in hand seemingly taking a picture of nothing. Ha I hear you cry! Little do they know? This work is from Conwy, Hereford and Abergele.
Diane Arbus said “A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know” I think this body of work documents well. I think this is a nice way to describe them. ‘Its like opening the curtains in the morning, you know that they are there but until youContinue reading “I didn’t want people to feel pity”
I recently read John Szarokowski’s 1964 book The Photographers Eye. This was produced to cover M.O.M.A first critically acclaimed photography exhibition, in the book he cover the topics which he sees are the 5 basic principles of a photograph. They are The Thing Itself The Detail The Frame Time Vantage Point THE THING ITSELF This is my Cat MillieContinue reading “Using John Szarkowski Photographers Eye Theory”
