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!

Sound of Silence Exhibition

Last week I photographed the wonderful Sound of Silence. It is a site specific exhibition between painter Alessandra Taccia and ceramicist Akiko Hirai in the beautiful St Peter's Church, Cambridge in conjunction with Flow Gallery, London.

The exhibition groups the work of two different artists working in different mediums but exploring the same themes, the idea of pausing, looking and the connection between object and environment. A moment to stop time. The church has a wonderful calming energy to it and the artwork looked as though it was a permanent fixture within the church. It was an amazing project to photograph and so lovely to work with the artists and Flow Gallery.

The whole project can be viewed here and the exhibition runs until 12th May 2018.

New Work - Chichester Festival Theatre

In October I finally photographed Chichester Festival Theatre for my Beautiful Brutalism project. I had wanted to visit and photograph it since 2011 when the project first started and I wasn't disappointed! It's an extremely elegant theatre and the geometric details in the foyer were beautiful. The new work can be seen here.

My photography of Chichester Festival theatre was also featured on Divisare's homepage last week along with my National Theatre photography.


Prince Street Car Park - Bristol

Over the weekend I was in the beautiful city of Bristol catching up with friends and photographing the stunning Prince Street Car Park to add to my ongoing Beautiful Brutalism project.
The car park was designed by Kenneth, Wakeford, Jarram & Harris in 1966 and is very similar to the design of Welbeck St Car Park in London. It was a great building to photograph and I look forward to uploading all the images to my Beautiful Brutalism project over the next few weeks.
