F-Stop Magazine’s Happy Accidents

I’m pleased to say that I have 3 images, in the October/November 2014 online group exhibition for F-Stop Magazine – Happy Accidents.

My images span 3 different projects that all feature plants photographed at night. Here’s one of them – a hydrangea caught in the wind in my own back garden.

Here’s another image which came from my documentation of the Chasing Shadows projection at Hackney WickED! 2014.

New exhibition of Chasing Shadows prints!

The Maya Centre has invited Bekki Perriman and myself to exhibit our work as part of the launch of it’s new home in Islington!

The launch is on 19th September, with patrons  Melissa Benn, and MP Jeremy Corbyn joining the celebrations.

The Maya Centre provides free long term counselling and psychological support to women who have experienced severe trauma through domestic violence, abuse in childhood or overseas in war and conflict. It is a not for profit specialist counselling service run by women, for women.

Bekki and I are both showing work related to our award winning exhibitions at Islington Exhibits 2013 – in my case it’s 5 of the original prints from the Chasing Shadows series.

Helen McCookery came along and wrote the loveliest words about some of the images (and the rest of the event) here: http://www.mccookerybook.com/blog/2010/01/radio-joy-at-foundry-part-of-it-anyway.html

“Two of the screens glow orange with nasturtiums: how did they know I liked nasturtiums?

They provided me with a constant supply of little caterpillars to keep in jam jars when I was a little girl; they danced optimistically in the West-country sun at my ex-honeymoon; they flowered heroically through the deadly weeks when I was packing up our big house and getting ready to move on, exhausted by it all.
Their happy morning song of shades of orange, sung through autumn frosts and dismal rain, reminded me that life can be beautiful even when it is disguised as a nightmare.”
