This is another long overdue post. Above and below are some images and tearsheets from a few of the commissions I’ve had recently. The first is of the film producer David Heyman, best known for producing the Harry Potter films and more recently for Gravity with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. I photographed David at Claridges in London.
John Griffith worked with the Safe Water Trust to develop the Aquafilter, which is a very cleverly designed pump for purifying water in emergency situations. The filter is distributed by humanitarian aid agencies around the World. I photographed John at The Tabernacle in Notting Hill.
The portrait below is of ‘social entrepreneur’ Paul Hilder. Paul founded opendemocracy.net, co-founded 38 Degrees, helped launch Avaaz.org in 2007, was Director of Campaigns for Oxfam and is now the Vice President of Global Campaigns at Change.org. I photographed him on Old Street in London for Wired Magazine (Italy).
My Electrosensitive series continues to gain more exposure. I have been invited to screen my short film at Reframe, a documentary film festival in Canada in January 2014. I will post up details of screening venue and times when they come available on facebook and twitter. I also have some portraits from the series on show in Salon/13 at Photofusion Gallery in Brixton in London. The exhibition is running in collaboration with Hotshoe Magazine and is on show from the 12th December to the 24th January 2014.
Below are a few photos from my pop-up exhibition Portraits of a High Street which was held in Cricklewood in North West London at the end of September. The exhibition was of 150 framed portraits of business owners in Cricklewood. As explained in my previous post, the project was a commission for Gort Scott and The Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund to help regenerate high streets around the capital. The exhibition was held at Navruz in Cricklewood in conjunction with Spacemakers, Polimekanos and the Cricklewood Improvement Programme.
Each portrait was framed and mounted with a bespoke laser cut Cricklewood mount. After the exhibition finished, each framed print was distributed to the businesses that took part in the project to create a long-term exhibition of the photos.
Note: I will be in Australia from the 12th December to the 6th January 2014. I will be answering emails while I am away and will endeavour to reply as quickly as possible.
