Exhibitions a go go!

The past eight weeks have been crammed with the organisation and implementation of various exhibitions and competitions. Some things are yet to be decided, but November will see the fruits of my labour, as I will be featured in four exhibitions across London Town!

Here they are in chronological order…

PHOTOMONTH PHOTO-OPEN

Preview 2nd November 6- 8pm

Rich Mix E1 6LA

Runs 02 – 26th November

Sun-Thurs 10am-12am, Fri & Sat 10am-1pm

 

This exhibition was open to all kinds of photographers, professional and non-professional,

students and young people from all over the UK and the rest of the world. All images

submitted will be screened on a projector, and a selection printed. Participants will not

discover if they have been selected for print until they visit the show!

***UPDATE! I had a piece selected for the wall, which was  nice surprise!

 

ISLINGTON ART SOCIETY AUTUMN SHOW

9th – 26th November

The Original Gallery, Hornsey Library

Crouch End N8 9JA

Private View Wednesday 9th November 6-8.30pm

I’ll be there armed with my camera. There’s lots more than photography to see.

Please come along!

The picture used for the exhibition poster was taken by yours truly and is an image of Alexandra Palace that I shot on black & white infrared film. Several people have commented on never noticing that tree before, but it seemed well-established to me. All the more reason for walking around with our eyes open!

LONDON INDEPENDENT PHOTOGRAPHY 28TH ANNUAL EXHIBITION

Espacio Gallery

159 Bethnal Green Road

15th – 20th November

 

London Independent Photography is a community organisation for amateur and

professional photographers with more than 500 members. There is a wonderful array

of satellite groups across the City who come together once a year to hold an annual

exhibition. Our independent selectors this year were Max Houghton (Senior Lecturer in

Photography at London College of Communication), Melanie King (curator and founder of

London Alternative Photography Collective), and Michelle Sank (Senior Lecturer in

Photography at Falmouth University).

I am pleased to announce that I have had a piece selected.

The Private view is on Tuesday 15th November, and I am not sure if I’ll make it myself! It

happens to be my son’s birthday and the day I hang my own show, so it will take a concerted

effort and a great deal of efficiency to find time to drop by for a quick hello!

DOWNTIME & HANAMI

16th – 21st November

The Gallery at Republic

Capstan House

2 Clove Crescent

E14 2BE

Private View Wednesday 16th November 6.30 – 9.30pm

Weekdays 11am – 7pm Weekend 12 – 6pm

This is big!

Two projects come together to form my biggest ever solo show…

Downtime shines a spotlight on what we do for kicks, outside of office hours.

Hanami captures some of the people who visited Yoyogi Park, Tokyo, to welcome the arrival

of the Cherry Blossom.

Needless to say that I am very excited to have this opportunity, and I do hope you will join

me at the show!

We are half way through Photomonth, and although I have managed to squeeze in a few shows, there is so much I have missed. Never have there been so many image-makers in the world!

My favourite so far was a small yet exquisite collection of black & white images by Mimi Mollica: Terra Nostra is his personal project, documenting Sicily and the impact the Mafia have had in the region. Expertly printed by and on display at the Printspace. Blink and you’ve missed it.

I nipped by the launch of Girl Town (celebrating the culture of the Female in the 21st Century), a collaboration between Shutter Hub and the Old Girl’s Club. There were 200 images from photographers across the UK and the world. A simple idea, well executed; recreated screen shots of instagram images with their numbered hearts and comments for all to see, and displayed as snapshots on the wall.

Talking of Shutter Hub, they have been very kind in writing a couple of pieces about my show and me. There are worse ways to spend your time, so why not grab a cuppa and settle in to what’s hot on the Shutter Hub site https://shutterhub.org.uk/blog

Not technically part of Photomonth, but within the timeframe I went to see William Eggleston Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery. I particularly liked his use of angles and unusual viewpoints. Something I am trying to incorporate more into my own work.

Keep smiling!
