Lunar Caustic Exhibition Preparations In Full Swing

Very exciting times lie ahead, as we prepare for the debut opening of Lunar Caustic in September!!! Every day more exciting confirmations are finalised and the works are carefully transported from one location to another, condition reports conducted and framing starts to commence.

This project has evolved so much over the past two years it really encapsulates a period of time, not only mine, but that of many others that have shared in the development of the project. At every stage this series seems to organically grow into something more, new objects show themselves, worthy of exhibition and beautifully twisting shapes appear from nowhere to be seen by many. In the attempt to control and restrain, this project gives us the reminder, that you can't, and for that I am very thankful. 

More to come very shortly, exhibition dates and press...

Very excited to say that I will be doing a performance at The Photographers' Gallery, part of the wonderful Self Publish Be Happy event, The PhotoBook Orgy on Thursday 5th June from 18:30.

"Paradise often lies between the covers of photo books. The binary desire to have or to be is the key to revealing such a paradise to our own eyes". 
Bruno Ceschel, guest editor of the current edition of Aperture's PhotoBook Review, has selected a diverse group of contributors to explore the nuanced relationship between pleasure, photography and the photo book. Re-presenting the commissioned texts as a performance, the event takes its cue from the issue, organised as one would, a big party.
