A BUSY WEEK

25/11/2009

Been a really busy week.

On the weekend I got back from an awesome photography trip to Paris to see some shows.

We saw Paris Photo which is always totally overwhelming, a real melting pot of inspiring photographs and prints, both old and new, with this huge hall in the Carousel de Louvre full to the brim with glamorous photographers and gallery owners and then lots of poor looking students gazing at massive prints and looking amazing and lost at the same time. Good fun. We also saw an exhibition of photographs from the war in Afghanistan by VII photographers which was very powerful, and on the last day an exhibition of the finalists of the Prix Pictet 2009 (won this year by Nadav Kander for his Yahtzee series) which was amazing.

In between then and now I’ve been to London from Brighton and back again to see Arsenal Vs. Standard Liege (2-0) and then tomorrow I’m back off to London for Arsenal Vs. Chelsea on Sunday and before then on friday I’m assisting Ben Roberts and the BJP’s Vision conference where he’s talking as well as Martin Parr and Eugene Richards. Should be a really good day – hit me up if anyone reading is gonna be there.

I’ll finish this post with a recent 6×7 shot from the Emirates. Plan to shoot alot of medium format in the near future and I also have alot of rolls to get back from the lab to scan and post.

Take it easy,
J.

  1. James Clark and I were hoping to attend the Vision conference, him to see primarily Eugene Richard’s talk and me to see Ben’s but unfortunately we now can’t make it. Both gutted! Would’ve been good to meet up too maybe. Nice job on your first collective blog post by the way, looking good! Al
