Last week I was in Ireland to review out the new Olympus OM-D EM-1. I arrived a day early so I could take a little look around Dublin as I had never been there before, and I was pleasantly surprised … Continue reading
Only in England: Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr exhibition at the London Science Museum’s new Media Space
The London Science Museum has opened its new Media Space Gallery with its first exhibition “Only in England”, showcasing work from Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr. The Media Space Gallery was set up in partnership with the National Media Museum in Bradford to show the National Photography Collection which the National Media Museum houses. The space is now one of the largest photographic galleries in London and each exhibition at the Media Space Gallery will also be shown in National Media Museum in Bradford.
I had a few hours spare in London when I was up for PhotoForum this week so I checked out the Travel Photographer of the Year 2013 exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society. It’s only on for another week so next Sunday (18th of August) will be your last chance to see it. Most of the exhibition is outside and there is a little coffee shop in the Geographical Society courtyard so you can enjoy a beverage while you view the work in out fine-ish summer weather.
As part of the Brighton Photo Fringe Festival MiniClick is bringing a slice of Phoot Camp to Brighton in the form of an exhibition and talk. Phoot Camp is an invite-only photography retreat where photographers get together for a few days and create new work. It’s been held in San Francisco, LA, Marfa (Texas) and upstate New York. I have been lucky enough to attend three of the four camps. I have met some amazingly creative people at Phoot so I am really proud to bring a little slice of the camp to Brighton for the Photo Fringe.
I have a lot of talks, exhibitions and courses coming up in the next few months, well I actually have events booked up right until February 2013, but I want to highlight a few that are happening over the next few months. If you’re close either Brighton, Manchester or Munich read on.

The London Photography Festival (LPF) opened this week (1st of June) with multiple exhibitions across the Kings Cross area of London. I was luckily invited to the pre-launch day and launch party. I did not get to see all the shows as they are not all open yet but what I did see was really interesting. I have written a little about some of the shows below. It’s not intended to be a must see list of exhibitions from the festival as I would definitely recommend taking a day checking out all the work as most of the venues are walking distance from each other. The festival runs from June 1st – June 30th. All the info on the exhibitions, talks and workshops can be found on the LPF website.
The good people that used to run the North Lane photography gallery have not been resting on their laurels since they gave up there gallery. Last Christmas they launched The Brighton Photography Book made up of pictures from the last ten years of the brighton calendar. Now they have set up a pop up exhibition in the old Virgin Maga store in Brighton’s Churchill Shopping centre.
During every weekend in May, I will exhibiting at an Open House exhibition at 21a Brunswick Square in Hove along with ten other artists. As usual I am exhibiting with my wife Rockcake who will have jewellery on show. Most of the work in the show is of a photographic nature to it but there is print making, illustration and sculpture on show too.
I am not going to go into details of everyone’s work but write about a few. Rob Orchard is showing a limited edition poster of his Brighton Pub project. On Sunday the 13th and Saturday 19th there will be an opportunity to get Dollerized by Lisa Bamford. Check my Dollerized portrait below to see what that entails. Lisa and I are also showing large range of block mounted prints.
