Brighton Photo Fringe business: MiniClick talk, Tim Andrews Over the Hill Exhibition and The Shot I Never Forgot
The Brighton Biannual and companion Photo Fringe festival are now in full swing. I’ve not got any stand alone shows in this years festival but I have images in two group shows and I am speaking at a MiniClick event. Combined the Biannual and Photo Fringe is a massive photography festival and would be well worth a trip to Brighton from London and further afield. If you are from London and this post does not tempt you down I recommend you go to ‘Make Life Worth Living‘ and ‘Open for Business‘ at the Media Space at the London Science Museum.
Nick Hedges was commissioned by the housing charity Shelter to document the harsh living conditions that people in poverty where forced to live in from 1968 – 1972. The work was used to help Shelter better campaign for those in poverty. To protect the anonymity of the people depicted the images have been used in a very limited way up and till now, this is the first public showing of the work since it was created over forty years ago.
Last June MiniClick published a small print run publication of some of my work documenting Brighton Swimming Club. ‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’ centred around David Sawyers: one of the clubs more eccentric characters. The first print run sold out super fast, I was on holiday when they went on sale, so I didn’t get a chance to promote the release, soon after I was back they were sold out. I know there was a few people that were disappointed that they did not get a copy in their hands.

This is Technimatic’s debut album ‘Desire Paths’ which was released by Brighton’s very own Shogun Audio label. They asked if they could license a preexisting image of an Oakland telegraph pole for the cover art of there album. Technimatic are a Drum & Bass due so it’s right up my street. It’s available vinyl, CD and digital formats at shogunaudio.co.uk and of course Amazon, iTunes etc.
Open for Business is a body of work that depicts contemporary British manufacturing in a time when most would believe it is declining. It show cases a broad range of industries from sausage making, yacht building and weaving to the construction of the HMS Queen Elizabeth the largest ship ever built for the Royal Navy. The work was commissioned by Multistory a Midlands based arts organisation that is dedicated to telling the stories of ordinary peoples lives.

In June 2014 MiniClick published 5 photo publications including ‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’ which showcases a collection of photographs by me based around one of the more eccentric members of Brighton swimming club: Dave Sawyers. Originally they just wanted to publish a set of pictures of Brighton Swimming Club. The Club is the oldest swimming club in the world with continuous membership and which I’ve been documenting since 2003. Early during their edit MiniClick realised that there was such a wealth of images that it was going to be tricky to edit it down so they decided to focus on one club member in particular.
On the Saturday 13th September I will speaking at the Birdie conference in London’s East End. Birdie will be an intermit one day photography conference which is more about stories behind photos and photographers than than kit they use to produce their images. My talk is about how I turned … Continue reading
My montage portraits are currently featured in the new issue of Hungry Eye. Last year Anton interviewed me and filmed me shooting some of my montage portraits for his new documentary film series Analogue Tribes (which you can see here). He has now turned our discussion into an article. Hungry Eye is a quarterly so it will be available until September 2014, look out for it in all good news agents.
