It’s that time of year again and the Brighton Festival has once again rolled around, which in turn means it’s time for Brighton Open Houses. There is an absolutely overwhelming number of open houses, more than you could ever hope to get around even if you visited them on every weekend of the 4 week festival.
In 2013 I was lucky enough to be asked by Tim Andrews to shoot his portrait for his “Over The Hill project”. Since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2005 at the age of 54 Tim has been on a mission to be photographed by different photographers, according to his blog the total number of photographers stands at 270. It’s an interesting role reversal where the subject of the photographs is the driving force behind the project.
Whenever I post montage portraits, I always start by saying I have been a little slack in posting them. This time round that is really true. I have six months’ worth to post so it’s a real best of the best. I shoot portraits of hip people around Brighton for Brighton Source Magazine’s street style section and then every so often I post them here. If you want to read about the featured peoples’ outfits you can read the words that go along with the pictures in the fashion section on the Source’s website.
I also have not posted any of the images to my Fragmented Portraits Tumblr for four months, but that’s about to change as I have lined up a post every three days till the end of January and this time round I will keep it going! If you’re into Tumblr, you can follow along here.
I have been interviewed by the BBC’s online magazine for an article that coincides with the 20th anniversary of Lomography. It’s quite nice to see that another Brighton photographer, Toby Mason, has also been interviewed for the piece; Brighton represent! The article was written by Stephen Dowling, the same journalist that interviewed me on the subject of Instagram in April this year. You can read the BBC’s Lomography article here and I thought it would be nice to post my responses to Stephen’s questions in full in case you’re curious to read more.
I recently spent the weekend with a film crew from O2’s Guru YouTube channel. They are making a set of films about different creative people and how mobile technology fits into there life. I am the second person they shot, the first was trainer designer / customizer Daniel Reese, check out his film here. They filmed me as I documented an average weekend in Brighton which culminating in me putting up a photo montage on a beach hut. If what goes on on the video looks fun to you, you might want to check out one of my weekend photography courses so you can join the fun.
Over the next few months I will have work on display at three exhibitions, two in Brighton and one in Berkeley, California. The shows are: Analogue, Instaland and a good old Open House (but not my house).
In the last few months I have have been interviewed three times by Dutch magazine Focus, Lomography.com and The Setup.
