Earlier this week I was commissioned to photograph the Beazley Designs of the year award exhibition at the Design Museum. 

The show features work such as the Pussy Hat, Refugee national flag and the Nike Pro Hijab. 

Carmody Groarke architects design the exhibition, and created a cave like environment using pulped newspaper. 


Autumn 2017

Early in September I visited the new hotel by Another Place, at Ullswater in the Lake District. I will post a page of shots from the shoot over the next few months, but in the meantime I want to share this image of the beautiful  twisting road leading to Howtown. I love the shapes that are made by the combination of man made structures and the landscape combined. 




Aberrant Light

We all like to capture the world around us in unique and intriguing ways. Showing otherwise mundane and normal views, and capturing them in a way which gives a new sense of atmosphere and feeling. The twilight view, where low light plays tricks on the eye and mind. Its never the same.
This is a series of vignettes, looking through a wooden box, with only the sun and a pinhole to project the scene on to the paper. The cold and steely print might might seem like an image of mid winter. Whereas many of these were taken in stark sun.
These images were taken on hand cut paper neg, developed in chemical trays under the stairs.
The combination of long exposure, paper neg, and a lack of lens sharpness helps give a natural grounded image.

This is an ongoing series experimenting with pinhole photography. 

Using traditional photographic methods to shoot contemporary subject matter and making images of modern architecture and cityscapes using the most basic of photographic techniques.
