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.

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.

Hastings Portraits (new)

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.

New Photos - Full Flow at Corsica Studios

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 :).
