Last weekend I was busy photographing The Big Sleepover in Myatts’ Fields, Camberwell and here’s a little snippet of the day.
Want to know more about The Big Sleepover? Here’s what Father Nature has to say about it:
“Your local park may be a familiar daytime haunt, but imagine being able to spend a summer night sleepover there when everyone else has gone home: you’re camping out, building a fire, enjoying storytelling and games with other local families.
Father Nature gives low/no income families a taste of camping in the great outdoors… on their doorstep… and for free! With tents and sleeping bags for all, and park security provided by the Army Reserves, each year 100 local families are invited to camp for a night in the park accompanied by workshops on fire-lighting and cooking, gardening, storytelling and much more, all with dinner and breakfast next day thrown in.”
I’ll be running a free one hour session Adobe Photoshop Beginners as part of Morley College Morsels on Friday 11th March. All the details here: https://www.morleycollege.ac.uk/events/273-morley-morsels
My project Interim Gardening will be published in a photo book as the results of an open call initiated by K- Collective. The book will feature a specially commissioned article by Guardian columnist and reknowed place-hacker, Bradley L Garrett.
This exhibition is concerned with examining the changing parameters of the public and private spheres and how these transformations are manifest particularly in city life; in the people and in the landscape. At a time of housing crisis and frequent over crowding, when a two hour commute means the train carriage stands in for the kitchen, the dressing room or the office, in a city where private moments are under cctv surveillance, how has the once strict dichotomy of public/private mutated and redefined itself? Who benefits from these changes, and who loses out? This exhibition aims to address these complex and typical questions through the medium of photography.
I will be taking part in the Photofusion SALON/15 again this year. All the details below.

I’ll be showing a photograph from my Lost, Found, Stitched series as part of Photofusion SALON/14 this December.
“We are pleased to present this year’s Members’ exhibition, Photofusion SALON/14. Taking its name from the 18th and 19th century Parisian salons, this exhibition will showcase the work of 140 artists, whose photographic and video work will cover the gallery walls from floor to ceiling. We received a record number of entries this year – over 1200 images representing the breadth of artistic talent throughout our membership. There were no categories or themes, the aim of Photofusion SALON is simply to showcase individual images that are powerful enough to stand alone in representation of a captivating story or concept.” Photofusion SALON/14
