Pinhole Day

It’s International Pinhole Photography Day! I’ll be heading out with the Zero later but for now here are some new images from back in February from the National Trust site at Studland in Dorset!

The last photograph

The photograph below was taken of my wife’s nan, Joan Stevens, a week before she passed away.  The image was taken in the hospice where she passed only a week later.  The image continues my photographic exploration.  Today we put her to rest. The image was taken using a Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera, IlfordContinue reading “The last photograph”

Art Photobooks

Over recent weeks I’ve been increasingly making Art Photobooks using a range of my previous projects. This is the fifth one so far, printed and ready for binding.

A few sheets from the past

Towards the end of my roller derby photography days I decided to roll out the Cambo SC 5×4 and shoot a few sheets.  This was about three years ago now and for whatever reason I never processed them. Here are two of the sheets of Harman Direct Positive.  Some 5×4 film on the way.  

Underpasses and Bridges

Underpasses and Bridges – a mini series shot using Ilford Pan-F 50ISO medium format film to a ratio of 6×24.  All images were photographed in and around the Portsmouth area.

Secret Dockyard Exhibition – Eldon, Portsmouth

As part of the showcase of exhibitions at the culmination of the BA(Hons) Photography at the university of Portsmouth. The show ran for four weeks across May to June 2012. 

A Road Petrol Stations at Night

A photographic investigation of non-place and the sanctuary provided by the A Road Petrol Station.  Emerging from the darkness of the long nights drive, they give us shelter, food and water. All images photographed using a 5×4 large format technical camera on Kodak Portra 160.

A day for film

No digital shooting today as I grabbed a couple of hours to use the Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera. Loaded with Ilford Pan F 50 120 film, I roamed Southsea and look forward to processing the results next week where I will shortly produce some prints to share.

Redbridge Grove

When this set of photographs was first taken my grandfather was still alive so they were more about gathering memories of this house before he moved out and into a sheltered living arrangement. Many of the images were from recollections when growing up and visiting both my paternal grandparents. In the over 10 years sinceContinue reading “Redbridge Grove”

A Road Petrol Stations at Night – an award winning, critically acclaimed documentary photography piece

One of my many on going projects has been ‘A Road Petrol Stations at Night’, a study of the non-place and world of the night time service area.  My initial interest in these places came about after reading ‘Non-Places’ by Marc Auge but what is a non-place? A non-place is anywhere we as people occupyContinue reading “A Road Petrol Stations at Night – an award winning, critically acclaimed documentary photography piece”
