Over the Hill at Montefiore

I am very pleased to announce that a selection of 40 photographs from Tim Andrews project ‘Over the Hill’, will be on display at the Montefiore hospital in Hove this coming May.  The exhibition runs from the 5th to 26th May, located in the ground floor reception area. Tim recommends that visitors please view between the hours of 10am to 5PM as it is a working hospital. Most of the photographs will be on show for the first time but I am chuffed for this to be the second appearance of my picture ‘Journeyman’, (the first showing was at Goldsmiths college).

The address is; The Montefiore Hospital, 2 Montefiore Road, Hove, BN3 1RD.

Here is a link to a BBC culture show feature from 2011, about the project.  https://youtu.be/hd4jOWzMyx8

I very much hope to get over and see all the great work, I hope you can too.

Impressions in rain

‘Impression in rain’

Taken while I was sitting in the car waiting for my son to finish Saturday art club.

The rain started to come down, so I thought I’d get some impressionistic shots through the wet car window of people passing by.

To get the look I wanted I set the focus manually to about 4ft. This way the camera was neither focused on the window nor the people and buildings, giving a sort of swirly paint look.

Best viewed at a slight distance. Or for some, maybe not at all hehe.

Nonetheless, it’s fun to experiment.

Lola’s ghost

Lola’s ghost (7 Images)

I took a brief wander around a few streets earlier today and came across this little gem. A decaying independent ice cream van!

This is my kind of heaven, photographically speaking.

Unfortunately I could not get a head on shot as there was a car parked right in front, just inches away. Not much to see on the inside either as it’s filled to the brim with crap.

Oh, and if you were thinking of looking up the web address seen on the rear of the van, don’t bother. It’s a long gone site that is currently occupied by a placeholder with porn links! Such a shame.

Gone but no longer forgotten.

Meet Boxhead.

Those who follow me will already have seen a few.

The idea was to create something quirky for days when inspiration is low. Having seen one of Banksy’s pieces of a child wearing a box drawing a robot, I decided to bring a similar sort of character to life.

Not sure where this is going at the moment, or indeed if it will go anywhere. I’m not trying to overthink it.

For now, Boxhead represents the anti-selfie.
