I've just completed a takeover of PARC's instagram account. The Photography and the Archive Research Centre is a University of the Arts London research centre, based at London College of Communication.
A recent interview that I did with COPYTRACK is now online. See it here.
This week (Monday 10th - Saturday 16th July) I'm taking over Metro Imaging's instagram account.
I'll be posting a walk-through of my photography projects and a couple of video pieces.
The August 2017 issue of the British Journal of Photography (BJP) - Look & Learn - has an article about the Breakthrough Awards, which features my image 21st April 2017 (Today's Look) and accompanying text. The image won Graduate Single Image in the awards.
The image and text is also in a newspaper that accompanies the exhibition at Shop 13, Old Truman Brewery in London which runs until the 3rd July.
The opening for the BJP Breakthrough Awards (where I won Graduate Single Image) is on the Thursday 22nd June 2017 from 6-9pm at Shop 13, Old Truman Brewery 15 Hanbury Street London, E1 6QR.
BJP are also running some sessions in the space with talks on various themes (Friday 23 June 2017 – Working in the editorial market / Monday 26 June 2017 – Breaking into the art world / Friday 30 June 2017 – Publishing your photo-book / Monday 3 July 2017 – Working on commercial projects and selling your images).
The show runs until the 3rd July and is open everyday from 10-4.
Today the BJP Breakthrough winners were announced and somehow my image 21st April 2017 (Today's Look) ended up winning the Graduate Single Image category!
It will be shown in an exhibition alongside work by the other 3 winners (Graduate Series - Ryan James Caruthers, Undergraduate Series - Todd R Darling and Undergraduate Single Image - Cathal Abberton).
The exhibition will open at Shop 13, Old Truman Brewery, 15 Hanbury Street, E1 6QR on Thursday 22nd June 2017, 6-9pm. It will run until 3rd July and will be open between 10-4pm.
The Black Country Edition of Area has an article about Girls, Girls, Girls! (a project that I have been commissioned to work on by Creative Black Country, Multistory and Delhi Photo Festival).
I've already made a few trips to the Black Country, a couple of which were to check out some of the events at Alchemy Black Country and to meet women for my project. It's a completely different way of working for me, but it's exciting and everyone has been super friendly and helpful so I am looking forward to future trips!
I'm excited to announce that I am working on a new project which has been commissioned by Multistory, Creative Black Country and Delhi Photo Festival.
As part of Girls, Girls, Girls! I will be making work in the Black Country, UK and in the Punjab, India with young women.
The project will be shown at Delhi Photo Festival in 2018.
One of my images from One Is Not Like The Other will be shown in a shop window exhibition in Landskrona, Sweden from June to September. It is part of Landskrona Fotofestival that runs from the 8th to 17th September.
