The Manor

We spent a couple of enjoyable days at an atmospheric stately home near Oxford, to test some new techniques and find ways of telling stories with the augmented reality app Blippar.

The project was conceived as an experiment in bridging the gap between still images and moving content.

Although the images can be viewed independently, by scanning them with an augmented reality app they come to life, revealing extra layers of information.

Is it just business as usual at the Manor, or is there a more sinister undertone to the activities of the individuals?

Thanks to Lou at LouLou Productions, Rachel Caulfield at ERA, as well as all the talent and crew that made it happen on the day.

Association of Photographers Awards 2015

It is always pleasing to get images accepted into the AOP awards. Unfortunately I couldn't take part in the celebrations this year, as I was working in Istanbul, but I heard it was an enjoyable night.

One of the images accepted was an outtake from a shoot in Lyme Regis on the English south coast. I was adding to the ongoing 'On Location' series and stumbled on this fisherman on the harbour wall, known as 'The Cobb'. The location was featured in John Fowles' novel 'The French Lieutenant's Woman' and the film of the same name, starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons.

The weather was, very fittingly, atrocious.

Until 27th January 2013 The Serpentine Gallery is showing a selection of Jonas Mekas' film, video and photographic works from throughout his long career. Mekas is known for his diary film style. His poetic vision is unique in its ability to capture personal moments of beauty, celebration and joy.

I photographed Jonas at his studio in Brooklyn last year, the images above are outtakes from the shoot for PRINT Magazine.
