Make Life worth living at the London Science Museum’s Media Space
'Make life worth living' is a mind blowing thought provoking photo exhibition by Nick Hedges at the Media Space at the London Science Museum. It’s on till the 18th January 2015 and is absolute must see. This is the 1st time these images have been exhibited in 40 years. The work was commissioned by Shelter to document the poverty that people were forced to live in between the years 1978-62. Read what I had to say about and see some of the images from the exhibition on my blog.
Album artwork on the inside fold of the ‘Jilted Generation’ by Prodigy. I remember being in my bedroom at the age of 16 and looking at this image thinking it’s one of the coolest images I’d ever seen and thinking how wonderful it would be to be a nomadic techno hippie fighting the system.
Jilted Generation was released 20 years ago. This illustration is by Les Edwards. There is an awesome interview on dazeddigital.com with Les and Stewart Haygarth who shot the Cover. Great quote from Les Edwards about meeting the Prodigy “They were a very polite bunch of young men. The only problem was that they kept describing what they wanted in street slang, so sometimes I had no idea what they were saying”.
Having fun with the Galaxy NX’s Animated Photo feature, the Galaxy NX’s is the only NX camera to have this feature it’s shared with other Samsung Android devices. This is joranmaaswinkel a fellow Samsung Image Blogger. It took quite a few attempts to get this, the limit for these gifs are 5 seconds which was just enough time to get up there.
Check out the latest edition of Hungry Eye magazine (issue 3 volume 2). There is a little feature about my montage portraits and a documentary call Analogue Tribes about film photography that I feature in. You can see / read more about the film and my montage portraits on my blog here.
Tucking in at the Guildhall Market Café in Bath by Kevin Meredith .
Taken at the Guildhall Market Café in Bath. The Market cafe has to be one of the most photogenic cafes I have ever been in as there is natural light streaming though the sky lights. Also because its part of the indoor market it’s quite spacious and you can shot it and it’s occupants form a few angles.
I was in Bath teaching a photography workshop to graphics students at Bath Spa University. One of the tasks on the the workshop is to shot a list of 36 things some literal and some that are more open to interpretation. I also take part so students can see what I can do with limited time, this was for one of “Portrait of a Stranger”.
I do something similar when I run my private workshops in Brighton. When I do the list exercise on my private workshop there is less people and I lend everyone the same film camera so it’s a level playing field. As we have more time the list has 66 items on it. If you are interested my next private course is on the weekend of the 9th - 10th August in Brighton.
