Royal Academy - Summer Exhibition

This year I have decided to enter the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition for the first time. I've never really thought of entering it as always thought it was more for paintings then photographs but having looked into it more realised it was open to all art forms. I chose a photograph that I took last year down on the Southbank and one that I personally really like. I filled in the entry form and sent it off before March 13th, next job was to get the image printed and framed ready to hand in.

On Monday 26th March I headed into London with my framed print to 6 Burlington Gardens. I was amazed to see quite a small queue, I had prepared myself for the worse thinking I might be waiting for a very long time but after 5 mins I was walking back out into the sunshine with my picture safely delivered. I hope my photo gets chosen but all I can do now is wait with my fingers crossed!

Welbeck Street Car Park due for demolition

"In summary the existing car park building has no particular aesthetic or historic value, and detracts from the setting of nearby heritage assets by virtue of it's bland and uninspired elevational treatment"
KM Heritage Consultant 2017


The inevitable has happened and yesterday, Thursday 10th August, Westminster Council approved the demolition of Welbeck Street Car Park. Although it has been on the table for a long time it's such a shame that yet another stunning piece of brutalist architecture will be destroyed to make room for a bland, non-descript hotel with no particular aesthetic value. I still can't understand how Historic England and the heritage consultants used can't see it's aesthetic quality or structural ingenuity and therefore listing it so it might survive just a bit longer. It will be a great loss!

I have been shooting the last few months of it's life since March and hope to undertake a few more shoot…

Ode to Welbeck Photography featured in Parking Review

The Latest issue of Parking Review (September 2017) has published a lovely feature on my Ode to Welbeck photography project. Welbeck also made the front cover which is great to see! I'm so glad the demolition of this beautiful car park is getting so much coverage and to see how much love it has. Still can't believe it can't be saved, disgraceful.

Ode to Welbeck featured on The Spaces

I'm really pleased that my new photography project Ode to Welbeck has been featured on the brilliant online design and architectural magazine The Spaces. Earlier in the year they wrote an article on my ongoing Beautiful Brutalism project and have been great champions of my photography.
