Pictures and Time-lapse of Brighton i360’s foundation pouring

This weekend was the first phase of the Brighton i360 foundation pour. A total of 2500 tonnes of concrete was poured into the foundations over 12 hours starting at 6am on Saturday morning. On average a cement truck was coming on site every 5 minutes to one of 3 pumps. The pumps can put the concrete anywhere in the foundation. There was a small group of men for each pump using vibrators to remove air from the concrete and to make it level. I was on site taking pictures and I also shot a time-lapse of the pour.

I’ve been working for the Brighton i360 for almost a year now. I’ve previously posted pictures from my visit to Cif in Holland where the tower is being made and I also posted posted the first 8 month of a time-lapse which is documenting the entire build.

Brighton Christmas day swim 2014

If I am in Brighton on Christmas day I will always try and document the Christmas day swim you can see a selection of images for previous swims in my portfolio here. Brighton beach was meant to be closed to swimmers on Christmas day 2014 and the Christmas Brighton day swim canceled. In 2012 and 2011 the council / sea front office took the decision to close the beach because of bad weather to prevent people from swimming, no one tried enter the water in those years. In 2014 the decision was taken to close the beach two weeks before Christmas day. It turned out that Christmas 2014 was sunny and the sea was flat so small group of people went swimming despite the beach closure.

I’ve been shooting Christmas day swims science 2005 you can see a selection of images for previous swims in my portfolio here.

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.
