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.”
Its the Urban Art Fair this weekend and I’ll be sitting in the sun (hopefully) on my usual bit of pavement on the corner of Josephine Avenue and Leander Road. So come and say hello and have a look at my new work, feedback (and sales) always welcome.
Taking part in the Urban Art Fair again this summer, Saturday ONLY 10:00 — 18:00, with liquid emulsion on tiles, embroidery on found photographs, photo etchings, screen prints….and hopefully some sunshine!
December is shaping up to be a busy month as I’ll be taking part in these two local events. More details to come…
Photofusion SALON/13 Launch Night Thursday 12 December, 18:30 – 21.00
13 December 2013 – 17 January 2014
I’ll be showing a photograph from my Interim Gardening series as part of Photofusion SALON/13: an annual Members’ exhibition showcases the talent and artistic quality produced by photographers across a broad range of disciplines.
Bazaar at the Portico Gallery 7th December, 11:00 – 18:00 I’ll be selling prints, greeting cards and framed photographs at the Portico Gallery Christmas Bazaar: an event with over 30 stalls selling a wide variety of arts and crafts including fascinating products for the season. There will also be carol singing, live folk music, mulled wine and mince pies and the lighting of West Norwood’s Winter Lights to end the day.
“A photographer who also likes alternative printing processes is Estelle Vincent. A few of her works – beautiful black and white portraits from the series ‘Elles’ – displayed at Urban Art are created using liquid emulsion. A lot of her work is film based and she likes experimenting with toy camera.”
