The REAL Bath Art Prize is part of this years Bath Fringe Visual Arts Festival (May 27 to June 12).  The deal is that once you register you get sent a random location to capture or create a piece reflecting the location.  I was given the Recycling Centre which I loved – here’s one of the images I took during my visit.

Number 40 is part of the SouthBank Arts Trail on 21+22 May in Southville+Bedminster, Bristol – always a brilliant weekend. As well as my own work the exhibition includes six other Bristol artists: Ruth Broadway (drawing); Hannah Hickman (photography); Stuart Low (glass and painting); Paul Brown (illustration); Hannah Broadway (illustration); and Steve Broadway (photography).

You can see the results of some of my recent iphone experiments in the  Phone-ography exhibition at:

The Photo Gallery, Photographique  31 Baldwin Street
Bristol BS1 1RG

The exhibition runs from 2-20 October 2010.

This is the first open submission exhibition run by The Photo Gallery.


As part of this summers Bristol Festival of Photography (20 May – 9 June) I curated the open submission photography exhibition ‘crossing the threshold’ for Retro Collectables and Broadwalk Arts.

The exhibition included work from 20 photographers from the UK and Europe who reflected upon the experience of entering environments that hold trepidation. I made the short film below of the all submitted work which was shown on a series of TV monitors in the windows of Broadwalk Arts and then selected 12 images that were printed and exhibited at Retro Collectables.

The image used for all publicity was from a series of photographs I took at a disused aircraft hanger in the lake district.

imagined narratives

‘imagined narratives #1‘ was shown as part of this years Southbank Arts Trail. It is an exploration in creating narrative from a set of seemingly un-related images.

Each person had their own idea of what the story might be; there was no right or wrong. Peoples ideas varied wildly, some stories filled with joy, others covering darker ground.

I would like to extend the work by providing postcards for the participants to send their feedback. Peoples stories could then be posted on the web thus extending the interactive nature of the piece.
