‘A Message to the Viewer’, my new film for Essex Road IV film commissions will be on show at Tintype Gallery for the next month. The films screen in the gallery window at 4-11pm every day until 13th January 2018.

Opening of Tintype Gallery Essex Road IV last night.
It’s great to be featured on Morad Montazami’s blog for Jeu de Paume called ‘Paris Petroleum’. He’s twinned it with a quote by sci-fi / horror writer Fritz Leiber “What if man hadn’t found oil, but oil had found man?” Morad will be writing the text for my book Caspian: the Elements which will be published by Aperture / Peabody Press next year.
I’ve just finished final tweaks on my film for Tintype Gallery commission Essex Road IV. Many obstacles, ups and downs making it, which in the end has formed the piece – now excited to show it next week. I’m indebted to Oona Grimes and Tony Grisoni for their help at the last stages. And of course to Teresa Grimes.
All 8 newly commissioned films for Essex Road IV will be shown back projected in the gallery window throughout December and January. There’s more information on the Tintype website.
‘No Man’s Land’ opens tonight at Impressions Gallery. I’ll be showing ‘Shot at Dawn’ alongside work by three photographers who were shooting during WW1: motorcyclist turned ambulance driver Mairi Chisholm, nurse and amateur photographer Florence Farmborough, and the UK’s first official war photographer Olive Edis. As well as work by two contemporary artists: Dawn Cole and Alison Baskerville.
A selection of photographs from “Caspian” have been featured in the new book, “Firecracker”, published by Thames and Hudson. I’m also delighted that my photograph has ended up on the back cover.
It’s lovely to be included in the new book ‘1001 Photographs You Must See Before you Die’, published by Cassell Illustrated, 2017.
