I am very pleased to announce that my collaborative project, Lunar Caustic will be part of a new exhibition in Paris that opens at Galerie Binome on Thursday 26th May. The exhibition, Second Hands presents artists that look to use the tactility of the found image to push forward ideas surrounding transmission, transfer and transformation within the changing landscape of contemporary visual language. Here is a section from the press release below;
"Sous le commissariat de Sophie Bernard, la sélection réunit des photographes et des artistes, mais également des éditeurs et collectionneurs. À partir de corpus d’images anciennes, négatifs ou tirages, ils font œuvre et établissent d’autres rapports au visible. Détachés d’un pathos matérialiste qui viendrait sacraliser ces images primaires oubliées ou tombées dans l’anonymat, ils reconsidèrent les qualités de ces matériaux, vieillis et un peu sales pour les recycler, les détourner et les hybrider..."

I may have been very quiet lately, but I have been in my studio working on some new pieces. I am absolutely thrilled to say that my new works were commissioned for the FT Weekend Magazine, which is live online now and available in print from today - Saturday 14th May!
In preparation for Photo London 2016, the FT Weekend Magazine, official media partner, commissioned four artists to create new work centred around their individual take on My London. I am very honoured to have worked with such an incredible commissioning team and to be situated in the magazine with some truly brilliant contemporary artists that use photography in exciting and inspiring ways. I am in great company with one of my fondest fellow friends, Tom Lovelace, the naughty Juno Calypso and one of great Magnum photographers, Mark Power. It is certainly an issue that shows how photography is shifting, developing and prepares you for what Photo London will offer.
My London, focus on the city as an never source of chaotic inspiration, with it's twists and turns offering up the everyday to the extraordinary. I centre the new works on the role of Instagram and how virtual portals are changing our physical experiences.
