A few photos from Boiler Room Festival's Bass Day at The Bussey Building in Peckham last Friday. I was very happy to be showing a version of my “Who Wants A Rewind?” installation as part of a great line-up of music, art and poetry. This time the images were shown on a wall of tiled TV screens.Read More

Sussex Wunt Be Druv - A WIP project about change, perceived or otherwise. By photographer Georgina Cook.
But them as comes to Sussex,
They mustn't push and shove,
For Sussex will be Sussex,
And Sussex won't be druv!
Last week I was invited by writer and now broadcast journalist Clare Considine to talk about my relationship to London music for her new show on Radio Primavera Sound “London Scenery.”
The show is on air at tonight (16th Jan) at 9pm UK time and 10pm Spanish time.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
It's quite a thing stopping people in the street or anywhere else in public and asking them for a portrait. I'm really only just learning to do it. It's completely different to asking people at events if they would like their portrait taken - generally people are used to seeing photographers at events and much of the time, welcome it. I decided to bite the bullet and start taking portraits of people in Hastings & St Leonard's, where I have lived since last year.Read More
Some photos from Full Flow event at Corsica Studios last month. Portraits of ERSATZ, East Man and A.G plus a few of the vibes from the club. I tried to capture some of the essence of what makes a club a club. I also captured some portraits of some of the LCC students in attendance at the event - they'll be posted at another time :).Read More
It's Valentine's Day and I remember that in 2006, I crowdsourced a loved-up Dubstep & Grime playlist from The Dubstep Forum to post on the Drumz Of The South* blog that I published at the time. So I thought I'd dig it out for you! It's a great alternative to the cheese! Happy Valentine's Day! Love GC.Read More
Throughout January, I had the huge pleasure of supporting the Graphic Media Design BA course at London College of Communication. The unit that I'm involved with is inspired by Jeffrey Boakye's Quietus article The Poet Laureate is up for Renewal: Could Grime Be The Answer and his subsequent book Hold Tight, a fantastically written exploration of Grime via 50+ key songs. The project is also taking in Paul Gilroy's essay attached to Eastman's latest release Red, White & Zero.Read More
