I spend no end of time fixing up my website and thinking about what equipment would make my work look better that in the end I just don’t take any pictures. No amount of html or equipment is going to change the fact that I’m just not happy with my photography. I do take photographs but rarely beyond the vicinity of my house, never beyond my comfort zone. For example I was taking pictures of the rain today whilst wearing my grandpa slippers. With college being over I have no excuse for the lack of direction in my work. I was jumping from brief to brief with little time for deep thought and now that I’m free for a while I don’t know what to do with myself, no one is telling me what to do! Furthermore Battlestar Gallactica is on a six month long Hiatus.


It’s still raining.

End of Year Show

June 20, 2008

Our end of year show launched on the 17th with jaw dropping success. The college was buzzing with students, there families and just about anyone who wanted to take a look. With the majority of students producing consistently good work there was definitely something for everyone to see. My favourite work was produced by the graphic designers, glass workers and painters with one particular mature student blowing me away with her Mondrian style geometric paintings.

The photography show came together surprisingly well with some notable shots from Michael Lowey, Terry Johnson and Emma Woodall. Faith Holgate gave everyone something to talk about with her abstract ‘undressing’ shots. Our class stands divided in opinion about her work but I really appreciate the bold ideas behind it. Chimerical and sensual, the only images in show depicting nudity, no matter which side of the fence everyone sat at least she had everyone’s attention. The most impressive individual image on show belonged to Hannah Wells with her leading red photograph being truly remarkable. The subject of the photo was Emma Nelson who in turn pulled off an impressive show of her own by scrapping the usual starkness of the gallery for her own brick wall effect to tie in with her street photography.

As for my own work I could not really say, I got a little drunk before hand and avoided the publics opinion however I was told my images got a few laughs which is really nice to hear. As you can see from the above photo we were all a little pushed for space, I still feel me and Amy Asten got the worst of it though.

I’ve posted most of my pictures from Scotland on Facebook and MySpace. Here are some blurs from Saturday morning, drunken shots taken at about 4am.

I came across this video on Organic Chemistry. It’s an amazing video created by Blu.
