Danny


I have recently been feeling like I don't appreciate the people that surround me and that I go to for support, fun, advice or simply for a conversation. I am going to take more photos of anyone that is close to me who I respect and spend a large amount of time with. This is Danny from a recent gallery exploration trip to London.

Riding the Long White cloud

This is a great documentary that follows the Poler riders on a long ride from one end of New Zealand to the other, it is a great watch even if you aren't into cycling or skateboarding. It is a great piece but thats to be expected with the likes of French Fred on production. 

Riding the Long White Cloud Part 1 from predatory bird on Vimeo.


I always wanted to do something like this, this has given me the inspiration to do it. I'm thinking maybe to Europe, see what is happening there. I think it would be great from a photographic perspective because being on a bike you have time to notice and assess your surroundings which isn't possible in a car. 

Be sure to check the other parts to it, you can do that by heading here.

Vice Guide to Belfast



The Vice guide to Belfast looks at the clashes and conflicts of Protestants and Catholics that occupy Northern Ireland, the battle may be over and the IRA no more but the war is still very much alive!

David Bailey - Hitler Killed the Duck


David Bailey has a new exhibition at the Scream Gallery in Mayfair London, it looks like a very interesting collection of work that plays off his childhood memories. Bailey is a big influence of mine, he is the photographer that made me understand what I loved about photography. I will definitely be heading down to see this exhibition which runs until the 12th of November, check out his interview with i-D talking about it here.

I took this photo a while ago but never put it anywhere, looking back at it I decided I actually quite like it.

BP Portrait Award 2011


I recently went to the National Portrait Gallery and had a look at the BP Portrait award, it was refreshing for me to see a range of painted portraits as it isn't something I have looked into in great detail before. Looking at detail that the artists are able to capture is mind blowing, some were amazingly realistic in the detail that they show. The two portraits above stood out to me the most, the left is Venus as a boy by Wen Wu and the right is Latoya by Alan Coulson. For more info check the NPG's site here.

Both Images are scanned postcards, all copyrights belong to the artists.

Nylon Street view



I bought this today, it highlights style from 7 cities around the world. Features some good photographers and I have to say I am a sucker for street style and a big fan of Scott Schuman who pioneered it. I think that documenting fashion that real people wear everyday is far easier for people to understand rather than elaborate gowns that will only be worn or bought by the very rich who will never wear them due to the impracticality of their design that you see on catwalks. I look forward to flicking through, well done to Nylon!

Film: not dead yet!

I stumbled across this interesting short documentary about photographers still opting for the analogue practises as opposed to digital. It is well worth a watch, you can see it HERE

Jeff Hahn



I stumbled across Jeff Hahns work while browsing a fellow photographers blog, it really stood out to me as he avoids all of the digital v film argument that seems to be absorbing photography these days. He creates beautiful images on a variety of formats, he seems to work with whatever he has to hand which I feel is admirable as it shows that its not about what you use its how you use it. He is incredible creative which oozes out of his work, I love it! He brings something new and I found it incredible refreshing to look at his blog and website because you can forget the bullshit that people are worrying about when they take photos and appreciate his talent. I look forward to seeing more from him in the future, you should check out his site for yourselves HERE.

Vice Visionaries - Nick Knight



Nick Knight has revolutionised the way that digital photography and imagery can be utilised,  he seperates himself from the digital film argument and is only interested in the medium in which he uses. He is by far one of the best fashion photographers out there at the moment and a huge inspiration of mine! He is also a true British gentleman as you can see from this episode of Vice Visionaries.

Update

I have updated a couple of galleries on my site, I plan on adding a lot more work in the near future with plenty of shoots planned. I am in the process of researching and planning a new photo project so stay tuned for new on that.  Also in other news I picked up Art Review magazine which I would recommend to anyone interested in Art or Photography.

Jeff Wall

I have always been intrigued by the work of Jeff Wall, the narrative's within his photos are incredibly thought provoking due to the manner in which they are hidden within the photo's and how they are represented by each individual element within. His compositions are always precisely thought out in such a way that they give you the impression that each photo is singular, as opposed to a series of similar compositions and selecting the best one. This may be true of his working practise but it shows how good his selections are.
