Anna’s Dream World

I went to my friend’s exhibition opening night last night – Anna Laurini’s “Dream a little Dream”. Needless to say I didnt just go there for the free champagne. I always love seeing the work of other people – especially when they are friends. It’s great to dive into their own little worlds for a while.

Anna well done! Congratulations to your brilliant exhibition opening night. And thanks for the free wine and the pizza. True Italiano Style.

I loved seeing your work. Good luck with it all.

And as promised here are the photos.

Ah of course, everyone, check out: www.annalaurini.com.

Cracking Art

On my way home today I saw this lady drawing a picture of a crack in a wall. I loved that idea. I spoke to her for a few moments and told her she could make a whole series about it.

I also said she would have loved Berlin 10 years ago when you could still see the bullet holes of the second world war everywhere.

I think she said she works in landscape design and the look of the crack reminded her of a landscape with rivers. I totally agree. It looked like the Grand Canyon when you got close.

Look out for the name of Fiona McQuard, maybe one day she’ll be famous for her cracking art.

Worst Read Possible

Not sure what makes the idea of reading it worse? That it is the Sun newspaper or that it has been been lying in front of the male’s toilet all day.
One thing is for sure it’s full of crap.

Safety Sucks

Don’t get me wrong, normally I m totally pro safety when it comes to cycling. But there is something deeply wrong about wearing a helmet and high visibility vest on a low rider.

It’s something David Cameron would do.

itchy i went Lomo

I have just finished a street photo project to which me and 20 other artists where invited to take photos for an exhibition celebrating 180 years of Covent Garden. We were given a dispososable version of the famous Russian Lomo camera.
We had a month time to shoot the 24 frames the camera was loaded with. With the only rule that all shots had to be taken in the London WC2 postcode area.
As a digital photographer for years this brought me right back to the roots. The limited number of shots and the lack of any control functions plus not knowing if any of the shots worked until everything is developed was a real challenge.

Now I can only wait until Covent Garden put all pictures up in a gallery. Very exciting indeed.

I ll keep you posted.

Peace and Love!
