A few weeks back when I was in London I took the chance to see a couple of exhibitions that really inspired me.
The first was called Wembley to Soweto, at the Oxo Gallery. The gallery shows the results of a month long photography course run in Johannesburg last year that gave teenagers an opportunity to learn not just how to take good photographs, but how to feed your family using a camera as the tool of your trade. Watch the video below to learn more.
The second exhibition was by Duffy, at the Idea Generation Gallery. I love Duffys work, so it was great to have the chance to see some of it printed and hung large… great experience.
I had the distinct privilege of photographing some of my best buddies getting married at the weekend, and what a blast it was! There is genuinely no two quite as unique as Chris & Laura… a Dr Who themed address? Why not!
Photographs are coming soon, but for now check out the photobooth pictures over here where you can view & order prints.
Very excited to get out on the road again this week, as I head south for Chris & Laura’s wedding. I’ll be spending some time with an old flatmate, reconnecting with Australian friends I last saw in Uganda 3 years ago, drinking coffee at Monmouth, and last but not least of all watching (& photographing!) some of my best friends getting hitched!
My buddy Alex has been blogging faithfully over at The Gap Films… and I highly recommend you read it!
Here’s what Alex has to say about it…
The outcome: And then it came to me in a (true) moment of inspiration. The times I’ve enjoyed films the most is when I have intentionally engaged with them. Like the best things, films engage us in the big stories that shape our experience of life. This was something I discovered when I had the chance to study a short course in Film, Religion and Ethics. My enjoyment of films was totally enhanced by having a framework within which to ask, to reflect and to mull over the questions raised by them.
