A A D Project Exhibition At The Clunny In Newcastle Opening 6th November 2013

For nearly two years I have worked on a project called A A D. A project all shot with a medium format analogue ( Hasselblad) camera with the subjects taking the photograph with a cable release. I have a photographed touring and bands from the North East including Howler, Hooded Fang, Art Brut, Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs.

There will be an opening on Wednesday  from 6:30pm at The Cluny in Newcastle and a free gig featuring So What Robot, Retriever, and an acoustic set by The Union Choir  – please come down. For more information please see the Facebook Event. I also have a Kickstarter campaign with some unique rewards from the exhibition.

Sylvain Sylvain Tim Burgess And Radkey – Instamatic For The People

Although I am now super busy with preparations for my A A D exhibition opening at The Cluny on 6 November 

I have had time to keep working on my Instamatic for The People project

For me the New York Dolls are such an important band and I always privileged to have seen them recently starting with their first comeback gig at the Royal Festival Hall back in 2004.  It was an absolute honour to add Sylvain to my Instamatic for the People project.

It was also great to have the legend that is Tim Burgess to my project  such a cool guy and feel really privileged to have him as part of my project.

I also photographed Radkey who have just appeared on Jools Holland show and really blew me away with their set at The Cluny – looking forward to seeing them again in 2014

Radkey At The Cluny Tonight

Had a great time tonight at The Cluny in Newcastle saw three high energy bands WTCHRS, Radkey, and Drenge. It was the the first gig in Newcastle by Radkey and they totally rocked

This is technically not a great picture but sometimes you just have to capture the moment otherwise it is gone. I was pleased to show some of the energy from the gig

Wide Angle Shenanigans In Liverpool and Leeds With Allah-Las

Had so much fun seeing this band – love their album and a great live band.

Also will remember Magical Mystery Tour, Ye Old Crack, The Phil, Cinammon toast in Leaf, thunder and lighting, torrential rain in Leeds, Elaine style dancing, and great company.

Hope they come back soon

A A D Exhibition In November

It’s been a long time. I will be having an exhibition of my prints from my personal project called A A D. I have worked on this since last summer and it will be great to see some large size prints on the walls of The Cluny in November and December this year.

Here is a mock-up of a potential poster for the exhibition ( featuring one of the shots of Howler from the project).
