Launching the publication of the second edition of Bristol Through the Lens: An Exhibition and an Essay. Published by Tangent Books, this edition sees the inclusion of two pieces in the series which were made after the original exhibition in May 2010 – the first a commission from the New Room (John Wesley’s Chapel in Broadmead, Bristol) and the second an installation piece for a community project organised by the Pierian Centre on College Green, Bristol. Available for £10, either here, or through Tangent Books, or at my fairs/shops this month (see below and Current Exhibitions). In my essay in the book, I explore ways in which photography can challenge the typical snapshot of Bristol sites – the text can be read in the library section of my site (images are only available in the book).
Also opening today: Bristol Creatives Pop-Up Shop at Quakers Friars, Bristol. This lovely bunch of local artists have got together and are running this shop until 24th December. It includes my work, predominantly from my Bristol Through the Lens series, with Christmas cards and other prints also thrown in. Some pretty crafty things going on, and a great example of resources and creativity amounting to mounds of delight. All welcome to pop in and see!
