Brighton Open House 2012

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.

The London street photography festival

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the launch of the London street photography festival. As part of the launch four of the venues were opened for a preview, I was able to make it around three of them. The Jewel in the crown of festival is the Vivian Maier exhibition. This is the first time Vivian Maier’s work has been shown in the UK. Vivian Maier’s photography was only just discovered even though she documented the world around her for her entire adult life. She passed away in 2009 and while she was alive she never showed her photography to anyone. The story of her works discovery and the secrets it has revealed is fascinating, currently a book of work is being published and a feature length documentary about her life is being made.
