Looking for Light
Even before I started teaching photography I have always enjoyed sharing the process and my experiences in photography.
I have found it intriguing to see different perspectives on visual language, how we record things and the way it shapes perception and culture. There is never a single approach to something photographed and we reconstruct what we see and need in the moment we look back on these 2D representations.
These are some portraits of people/students/photographers I have shared my interest and empathy in the process of recording light.
Lions All Fours
All Fours, also known as High-Low-Jack or Seven Up, is an English tavern trick-taking card game that was popular as a gambling game until the end of the 19th century. Nowadays the original game is especially popular in Trinidad and Tobago where it is the national card game.
These photographs were taken in North London in the late 90's, of members of the Lions Social club. Now games and events are held at the Trinidad & Tobago Association in Haringey.
Making Music: the process and craft.
This is the start of an on going project about the processes and craft that go into various elements of music.
For a long time the focus and appreciation of main stream music has been about the vocalist. (Thanks X factor and The Voice).
This is a visual study of elements and connected crafts, that have made music the tradition that effects, inspires and moves people.
These were taken at Bass Place, Herne Hill, London.
