Digital StreetBound

The magazine StreetBound that i have been editing
is now at the printers!
Eagerly waiting to get it back as hard copies but this is what it looks like digitally:

The images included are all from students on my course at school and it was put together by a team of about six of us in ten weeks.

We're launching this in partnership with an exhibition at The Printspace on Kingsland Road from the 27th September to the 15th October.

Sally Mann What Remains

Yesterday I saw the Sally Mann exhibition at the Photographer's Gallery.
So beautiful and inspiring, I love her work.
I think I like her work so much because appart from being viually seductive, her images are mostly about the process she goes through to make them. She uses wet plate collodion processing to make images with a very unique looking surface, and I think it's refreshing to see work that is as much about the process of making the images as it is about concept.

Mark Borthwick InspIration

A favourite photographer and huge inspiration of mine:

My Dad

Personal portraits of my dad as i see him.
Not as an author but as a family member.

Like irving Penn said, i think these reveal more about the person underneath than the author photo does.

Irving Penn

The Irving Penn portrait exhibition at the NPG
really inspired me
to want to take more portraits.

I loved what he said about revealing the
personality underneath,
the one the sitter doesn't necessarily want you to see.

Damien Lewis

A portrait I shot for my father, Damien Lewis at the Front Line Club in Paddington.
He needed some portraits for his books and website:
I shot this on Hasselblad and Neopan 400 film.

Streets of Dogtown

Some magazine layout ideas I had to do for schol using my skateboaring images and quotes from Lords of Dogtown.
