Summer longing!

With no end to the cold and snow in sight I've been looking back at some random photos from the summer. Here's two that caught my eye, very loosely connected by a photography theme : )

(Florence Summer 2010) 
(Istanbul Summer 2010)

Winter Wonderland London Dec 2010

So birthday plans fell apart this year as flights to Gatwick were suspended and we drank beers and played shit head at Weatherspoons.  So instead of Berlin we pounded the streets of London searching out gourmet sausages, Gluwein and crazy Euro DJs at Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland.

My Fledgling Mini Cab Office Obsession

Halloween 2010 involved a lot of voodoo party fun before sudden realisation that I had to be up at 8am for a course so I called around trying to find a cab.  Freakin hard! no-one had any available so grabbed a beer and headed towards Holloway only to bump into this gem of a place.  Things I noticed first, the pool table, sign saying don't smoke any illegal substances and most of all a down right wierd acculumlation of clutter, maps and posters.  All faded and browning, but looking like a surreal film set or museum piece.  If anyone knows of other incredible mini cab back rooms I'm now on the hunt so let me know.










Click on the images for BIGGER to admire extraordinarily random clutter.  The clutter of heroes!

Alice Holt Forest

In deepest Farnham is Alice Holt Forest.  Was there to take some stills at a video shoot for Worship, editing the photos now so hopefully will have a lot to post soon.


Kozushima

One of the Izu Shoto islands and only a couple hundred km from Tokyo Kozushima is much larger than some of it's neighbours but with only 1900 people and rising towards a scarred and barren volcano it feels remote and dominated both by geology and the ocean that surrounds it.

I camped there for a couple days and found virtually deserted hamlets filled with one eyed cats, incredible sashimi and two rival supermarkets competing for the limited business.

Interesting place to visit.

Oh! Inverted World - 16th Sep

Schwing!

We've got Les Cadets, Ivan Ink & Pen, Toby Pellow and some very special mystery guests.  Come along to the Old Queen's Head and party like it's 1992.


Wow, a horizontal flyer ; )  The photo is from my girlfriend's cousins wedding, this is the aftermath of the extreme egg and flour chucking at groom and best man experience.

Lost Villages, extended....Bonus Shots

Lost Villages, my exhibition at The Orange Dot Gallery in London, has been extended until September 16th.  It's open 10-6pm every weekday.  If you're interested but can't get along I've put all the photos and some info up HERE.

I had to limit myself to 23 pictures so to compensate I will be posting some extra images from the trip, starting now!
Here are a few portraits from Japan, from baseball loving cowboys to a ship crew at rest and a policeman looking for 'American terrorists' in Sapporo.  Just a few of the amazing people I met along the way, oh and my friend Aki picking wild vegetables around her grandparent's abandoned home.  This is the same location as the photograph I've used in my flyer which comes from the entrance way into their old house.

 Baseball in Fukuoka, The Softbank Hawks were terrible!
