Brighton Swimming Club Members In The Snow

The last time we got a decent amount of snow in Brighton was 5 years ago in January 2013, this week we got a pathetic dusting of snow over night that was melted away by mid morning. I always like to get photos of my fellow Brighton Swimming Club members in the snow weather it’s a pathetic amount or not. Usually I like to get shots of members walking across a snowy beach but there was not really enough snow for that. Instead I used the snowy beach as a back drop for some portraits, I shot them after they came out of the water. I shoot some of these after my swim while still in my trunks on the beach and I still managed to hold the camera steady! You can see how much more snow there was in 2013 on my blog and see a selection of my snowy swimming photos from over the years in my portfolio.

Twenty years ago today in September 1997 I went to London with my mother to Lady Diana’s Funeral (obviously we did not go the ceremony at Westminster Abbey). Instead of jostling for a position on the route of the funeral cortège we decided to head to hyde park were big screens had been erected to show the funeral service.

Martin Parr’s Beach Therapy at the Rocket Gallery

This week I went to the opening of Martin Parr’s new exhibition ‘Beach Therapy’ which show cases Parr’s latest work documenting the beaches of the UK, Italy, Spain and Argentina. In the past three years he has been utilising a telephoto lens to shoot subjects from a distance, this is quite a departure form his usually way working. The use of a telephoto lens flattens the perspective and crates playful juxtapositions with blurred subjects in the foreground to create something quite different from his previous work.

Fox Talbot: Dawn of the Photograph at the London Science Museum’s Media Space

The show is a perfect marriage between science and photography. Fox Tolbot was a scientist, photographer and entrepreneur who invented the photographic negative in 1835 which was a huge leap forward in photographic technology. The negative meant that unlimited perfectly duplicated photos could easily be produced. Before Talbot’s negative the first commercially available photographic process, the daguerreotype, produced one-off images on silver plated copper. Talbot’s invention brought photography closer to what we think of it today, a medium where duplication is embedded into its core.
