WOW well what a year – my haven’t touched the ground!! Here are some of the hi-lites.
The GLORY has been open just over a year now and so much has happened there – love my role as one of their in-house photographers!
here’s a video I made for their New-York collaboration ‘Pussy Faggot’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw17lAi7TCQ
Working on characters with Jonny woo is literally a scream!
I have developed new relationships with performers such as Jacqui Potato
and photographed her maker; Julien smith’s fashion collection
I spent a glorious week on residency with Scottee in Margate over the summer working on his project Luck https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fbq73pSzDws
we stayed at Amy Redmond’s (co-founder of sink the pink) wonderful new space Margate Arts Club
I have continued to work closely with David Hoyle and his team documenting his London shows and developing work for an upcoming book
and of course Scottee and the gang travelling around the country as he takes over the universe!
I did the promo and docu for Duckie’s blockbuster Border Force
and ended the year with one of their wonderful community projects ‘Hackney Honky Tonk’
I’ve been working with Bird la Bird a lot too this year on some videos for the V and A digging up hidden or erased queer histories in its collection… (video link coming)
Studio SHOWOFF is my latest pop up – a drop in photo studio
D.A.R.C. (documentary action research collective) is an exciting new group I am part of, we received arts council funding to develop a website and pilot the initiative and are due to officially launch early 2016. Part of the pilot was a collaboration with Spill festival doing some of their promo images. Here’s a link to our website http://www.darc.media
and finally I finished a project!! TRANSformations will be exhibited early this March…
THANKS FOR STAYING WITH ME!!
NEW YEARS resolution = DO MY BLOG REGULARLY THIS YEAR!!
