21st May 2013
Sunday afternoon treat - a trip to the cinema to see The Great Gatsby.
Great cast, beautifully shot, amazing locations etc. I want Toby Maguire’s house - the others were grand, but way too much for me (what do you do with all that space?)
Went out for a bus ride to read some books for my uni essay and ended up at The Photographers Gallery.
Really enjoyed Claire Aho’s work - it’s showing until the 21st July 2013, and you can check out the Deutsche Borse prize whilst you’re there too.
& I love her image of the woman in the light green dress, but couldn’t find a big enough picture.
I have some footage in this video. It’s part of some work made for Joanna Wardrop, as part of her residency at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford.
I will post up my full contribution soon as I am becoming more interested in video. This was an example of early ones that I was making, though it has moved into a more autobiographical direction now.
& my first self-published book moves closer to completion.
I commissioned an essay by Joanna L. Cresswell - add her to tumblr too!
I posted a picture of Tess & I 6 days ago, of her looking a little worse for wear a few months ago. I think I took the picture, because I guessed it would be the last time that I saw her.
I found out that she died this morning. She’s the last of my childhood pets to be buried :( She was rescued from someone’s garden after it was noticed that she was tied up and kept on a chain. She must have been about 18/19 years old when she died.

The Funeral Party
by LS Lowry
My Nan sends me a letter a couple of times a month. She prefers to write in notecards; this painting was on the latest one. Normally she gives me some kind of pep talk, but this time she said I give good advice. Go me.
It’s been a year since I finished The Many Faces of JFA
I did plan to be at home to take a similar portrait, but I’m not so will have to try a hotel, non-lit equivalent. We shall see.
A few of them are currently on show at theprintspace, which has been extended until the 17th May. It’s open Monday to Fridays, 9am-7pm.
