I secured a press pass and spent a week in and out of London’s Great Olympia exhibition Hall making images of what is a unique and banal combination of visitors and exhibitors at the annual Ideal Home show. The subject necessitated I shoot in a slightly tongue-in-cheek way and influenced I think by one of my photographer heroes Martin Parr. Hoping to have these published and will update accordingly .
My Image below was given a honorable mention in the 2017 International Photography
Awards for the One-Shot competition on the subject of Climate Change . This landscape
was made in Uganda and shows the effects of slash & burn farming practices that lead to
deforestation and soil erosion .
A couple of weeks ago I journeyed up to the house of the presenter and writer Andrew Marr to photograph him for his new upcoming documentary called ‘Andrew Marr my brain and me’ . He will chart his ongoing recovery from a stroke over the six month period during the momentous events that included Brixit, Syria and the U.S. elections.
Andrew has a very funny and overly curious half Bengal cat ( as I know from experience they are , having owned one ) . Away from the more formal and structured portrait I made a few as the cat tried to have a closer look of Andrews ‘Brain’ ! Its good to see this one was used in the article in the UK Guardian on Sunday . Enjoyed spending time with lovely Andrew , his cat and Laura Sunnucks / Icon.
I only just discovered we had two images selected for a honourable mention in these prestigious awards published in November , in the ‘CityScapes’ category. Better late than never !
