Obsolete and Discontinued – in the BJP, a book launch and an exhibition!

Obsolete and Discontinued is being made into a book!

The book is edited by project founder Mike Crawford and designed by Paul McKenzie Studio with an  introductory essay by Brigitte Lardinois. Published by Brovira Press the book is a limited edition run of 750 copies, cloth bound hardback, 128 pp, size: 28x24cm.

To support the project please do contribute to the O&D Crowdfunding campaign – as well as discounted copies you can buy limited edition postcards and prints from a selection of the featured artists.

The book launch is on Friday October 5th at Waterstones Bookshop Gallery, Gower Street, W1 – which will also mark the opening of a month long exhibition of all of the prints. Please do come along and check out the work in person, the prints are extra beautiful and some are wonderfully experimental.

This is my print for the project –

And if that wasn’t enough excitement, the BJP featured Obsolete and Discontinued on their website as well as running an article in its February 2018 magazine!

Part of Miniclick’s ‘Another Way of Looking” programme, created in association with Brighton Photo Fringe and Brighton Photo Biennial 2014, this free event gives participants an opportunity to curate their own photo-book from a range of artists work – in photographs, prose, poetry, drawing, collage, etc, etc.

When: 11am-5pm, Saturday 25th October

Below is one of Miniclick’s documentary photographs of all the work ready waiting to be part of someone’s book.  And you can just about make out my photo in the middle of the shot (hanging sideways, behind the giant ear!)

As a photographer I think there’s something quite exciting about giving up a photograph to the unknown, for someone else can use it to tell their own story.

My photograph is from ‘this table is sad because no one is sitting at it’, which employs a twin lens technique to consider the subjective experience of the everyday transitory moment. Click here to see more from this series on my LensCulture profile.

 

 

Chasing Shadows at Islington Exhibits – documentation

Thanks to Rowan Arts and Islington Exhibits 2013 for giving me the opportunity; this installation is something I’d wanted to create for a long time.

Here are some documentary images, and some footage (without sound), and a record of viewer comments.

 Some of the lovely comments left by visitors:

“Exquisitely, skilfully crafted photographs. I love the movement, the merging of one image and sense into another.  You have a gift for finding such serene beauty in the easy to pass by scenes of everyday life.”

“I liked the rambling impact of nature against buildings.  The urban mundanity and beauty, emphasised by plants, trees, shadows, walls, windows makes my senses dream.”

“It perfectly demonstrates how things are really out of our control.”

“Has a strangely compelling quality – the way the images move through a journey – and each time you look you find yourself drawn in further.”

“I love the way the prints almost pour into each other.  It’s very hypnotic.”

“It is wonderful the way that very ordinary everyday things are transformed into something very mysterious.”

“I could feel the same dreamlike gaze that you must have had on your night walk.  It took me back to memories of my own walks at night time – the larger than life plants, the dark leaves but bright flowers.  For some reason I find the vegetation says more at night and that really came across through the texture and light and shade.”

Footage:

I had a great time meeting people and seeing/hearing their responses, and I learned so much more about the work from those interactions. Thanks everyone!
