I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Lorenzo Vitturi at his studio. Lorenzo has recently received numerous awards for his book Dalston Anatomy. A unique photographic and sculptural study of Ridley Road Market. It is of a particular interest to me as my studio is right around the corner and I often walk through the market.
Fun times with Tilted Acres
A few weeks ago I enjoyed an afternoon in the company of Mo Kolours for One Handed Music. We enjoyed a little wander around Peckham followed by some bacon and cucumber sandwiches. A very pleasant afternoon all in all.
The good folk at Modular People commissioned me to shoot some studio portraits of Australian DJ - Beni. The brief was to shoot strong, clean portraits for the excellent Hattie Stewart to work on and make into a series of covers for upcoming releases. This is the first EP - Love on the Run
Some of the shots are being used for promo.

Over the last few months I have be working on another craft maker film following on from Semblance, made for illustrator Von.
Mccaul Goldsmiths, based on Exmouth Market in Clerkenwell got in touch and commissioned me to make a short film showing the some of the processes they use in making their jewellery. Unlike a lot of larger jewellers they make everything from scratch in house. It was fascinating to see the beautiful equipment in use and modern style they have developed. Long time collaborator Andy Telling came onboard to make a unique soundtrack and Jon Leese did a great job grading the final film.

Von is an illustrator based in London who releases limited edition prints under the title Semblance. He commissioned me to shoot and edit a short film documenting the process that goes into making the Intaglio Gravure print.

I have updated my website (yes I know it looks similar to the last one!) with new and larger images, including a new series on The Computers and recent work including pictures from Primavera Festival and for The Guardian.
Tip - Try using the arrow keys when navigating pictures. Its pretty nifty.
My friend Patricia has started a new site called Paper Journal, an online magazine focused on contemporary visual arts.
She asked me to undertake some studio visits photo stories and we evolved this idea into a series of audio slideshows.
