Time Zero

There are an infinite number of things that I love about film photography but one of its major attributes has to be the community surrounding it. No-one quite enthuses about photography like a film photographer, and no-one has quite had my back like the film photography community. Everyone is so supportive of one another and I’m always…

Sans Peur

I’m very lucky to have ticked another country off of my list, as I find myself exhibiting in Rennes, France this month. I am in great company in the exhibition which is showcasing the work of many other wonderful artists, as part of the Expolaroid event celebrating art created using Polaroid film. The show opened on Saturday and…

Social Butterfly

I was recently sent an Instax Wide camera to test out from the lovely people at Lomography in London. There’s a little interview that has gone up today on their magazine (thank you to the lovely Eunice). You can have a peek at my usual rambling replies to work related questions here: www.lomography.com/magazine/319468-newcomer-of-the-week-elegia I must…

In the wee small hours

I feel like artists (in any form) adapt to and are inspired by their environment. During these cold, dark winter months I’ve been making the most of the night hours by spending much of my time outdoors shooting self-portraits. I’ve always been a night-owl, having had terrible insomnia as a child that I didn’t shake…

Keep on keepin’ on

So 2016 is here and mine is beginning with a few print publications impending. I’m excited and chuffed, but mostly I’m working on where to go next. As someone who works with tangible imagery, print work is one of two main end goals that I have when it comes to creating; the other being exhibiting. I can’t express…

Bubbly

The other day, I was counting up how many times that I’ve moved house over the last five or six years, and the total amounts to a scary five. Argh. With relocating comes well blogged-about stress, and packing, and new cat beds, and occasionally gifts. I’ve garnered several bottles of champagne as housewarming presents, which is…

Lost and found

My SX-70 broke two or three months ago, and in between moving house and packing, I staved off sending him away for repair until I was all settled into my new place. I was unpacking some of my boxes of cameras recently and dusted my SX-70 off to pack for posting; but not before quickly giving him a…

Thirty-four

I wrote a quite blog some time ago about my plans to write my Dad a letter telling him about my work and what I do. Sadly though, despite writing that letter I never posted it. I don’t know why. Lack of confidence I guess and my superstitious nature. I have been worrying that my…

Cellar Door

I recently updated my website which has caused my blog posts to go completely skee-whiff, so apologies for the hideousness of how this section looks. I’m trying to figure out how to fix the layout and get everything back in order. The images and text just don’t seem to want to co-exist on the blog posts…
