Photos of Hastings Jack In The Green 2019

Here, Jack In The Green, Hastings annual celebration of the coming of summer, sits next to the crowning of the May Queen as apparently the two are related. It’s a busy time of year for the Morris Dancers of Hastings, as well as the various community groups and societies in the area. It’s all nature and community and community and nature, generally framed and buffered with a whole lot of music, dancing and merriment - making it feel all that more normal and familiar for a girl that grew up with the dancing, merriment, music and community of events like Notting Hill Carnival.

"A Fortnight of Tears"

Whether a secret & sweaty new jazz night (where phones & camera’s on the dance floor are frowned upon) or the High Art of The White Cube; London’s art often remind me that there is so much power in expression; not least the work of the YBA’s such as Tracey Emin, which I’ve sort of grown up with.

Inspiration is a two-way thing. Thank you Selfridges!

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Selfridges and DARSI specifically, for inviting me to their skate bowl to talk about my experiences photographing music!

I’ve been speaking quite a bit over the past two years about photography, grime, youth culture, the early dubstep scene and contemporary music history and always really enjoy sharing my experiences with and passion for those subjects. It’s even better when I get the chance to have conversations with the audience because then it’s a two way thing!

Currently Feelin* (Podcast Love #1): A Small Voice

Today I listened to the latest episode of Ben Smith’s A Small Voice Podcast which I would say is undoubtedly the best photography podcast out there. Why? Because in talking to so many different photographers, so much about the medium is revealed - why & how photographers pick up a camera in the first place & how their own experiences & perspectives are inherently tied to the images that they make, for example.

Barbican dream.

I went to the Barbican Centre when I was a child, I’m sure of it, despite any evidence. I dreamt about it ever since - a dark staircase, labyrinthian balconies, golden faces, weird light.

From the Archive

I lived in Paris for a few years, where I was fortunate to get to know some of the city's up and coming producers, DJ's and artist's. Once such person was Manaré - who as well as being highly creative, is a very nice person and a great person to photograph. It's rare gem meeting somebody so natural in front of the camera and I absolutely love this shoot which we did in the summer of 2011 in a small park near central Paris. In some of the shots, Manaré is modelling a t-shirt from his own label Noir Noir, which produces stunning pieces inspired by Art and Nature. It was an absolute pleasure to come across these photo's today, so I had to share them. I posted a few to give you an indication of the process involved in shooting people.
