Two of the Same

.

I was going through our stack of film photographs the other day and among the ones we took last year, I found these two. It struck me how similar looking they were and while I remember taking the first one on my birthday almost a year ago, I did not remember Daniel having taken the second some months later. read more

This Could Be Somewhere Else

This is a digital exhibition of photographs taken on a humid, overcast day in July on the south coast of Kent. They were taken on a single roll of Adox Color Implosion with a 35mm SLR camera before it started to rain. read more

One Frame – #1


For a while now I have been walking around with an idea for a new series of blog posts. As much as I intended to blog more this year it hasn’t really happened (because hey, life!) but maybe this series could help me share what I’m up to without stealing too much of my time to do other things.

Last year I stopped myself blogging about something quite a few times because I was in the middle of a project and wasn’t sure what format I would end up showing it in. I don’t have a problem with showing work-in-progress or something unfinished but I didn’t want to share anything prematurely if I wanted those projecs to be seen or engaged with in a different way. read more

Ghost Town

For years I have wanted to take photos of my hometown. The places I knew so well, the street where I lived, the views from my windows. The library I used as a child and not enough as an adult. read more

There Are Too Many Women in Museums


There are too many women in museums
tucked into corners,
these busts with sad faces and
demurely downcast eyes,
statues shaped
by what someone else has seen.

But where are all the names
on the signs
that should have been here,
theirs only used for titles, leaving whole walls blank,
as if no woman had thought
to put anything on them.

I want the women in all these paintings
to be blushing,
not of humility but rage.
I demand to see in writing
all the names that should have made me
think,
mine could be here too.
