Off I went down to Heathrow Airport to meet Gurkiran Singh Mann whose street has been overtaken by avid plane spotters.
Here is how the image looked in the magazine. It was published on Saturday.

I curated an Exhibition which is part of Photomonth 2012, East London's International Photo Festival.
The Exhibition is titled 'For Our Pleasure?' and is currently showing at the gallery in Hackney Picturehouse. If you get chance pop in and see it. It looks great, photos to follow!
It is a thought provoking group photography and installation experience examining human interaction with the environment and animals, and culminating in a panel discussion at which the audience are able to partake in discussion regarding issues raised throughout the show.

PORTRAITS AT THE PLACE
182 Stoke Newington Road, London N16 7UY
Opening night: Thurs 16th August from 19:00 till late
Exhibition runs until 28th September. Opening hours: Weekdays 18:00 - midnight, Weekends from midday
The Place quietly opened its doors on the 26th of May.
After two months of music and dancing, mingling, coffee drinking, film screenings and fun, it was time to take the creative space one step further by inviting six Artists to participate in The Place's first Exhibition, 'Portraits'.
The result is a strong group exhibition, exploring interpretations of the Portrait as conceived through the differing mediums of Photography, Painting and Illustration.
"Keeping it simple and going back to basics with no frills, jargon, or futile corporate ambition motivated me to conceive and curate the very first official exhibition at The Place, a unique establishment, accommodating culture, events and art with love, quality and enthusiasm.
PORTRAITS, was the first thing that came to mind, as a representation of the person, the people, the expressions, the character. I wanted to focus on 2 dimensional work and when looking for artists, i was very pleased to have been approached by photographers, painters and illustrators, translating their definition of the portrait via their chosen discipline.
All the artists are super talented and their work manifests exactly that; their love for the face, the lines, the personality. Enjoy them. Many thanks to the artists Sarah, Alex, Atalanta, Zbigniew, Ego and Tasha. Also thank you to Pierre, whose precious help and excellent PR skills, made this exhibition possible." stav B. ©2012

It's quite a big deal in the UK advertising world to win these Awards so I was thrilled when I heard two of my images were shortlisted and made it through to the second round of judging. Extra thrilled because it was 2 out of the 3 images I entered (and not a series either).
Because it was 2 images I was convinced one would make it through to win. Sadly neither did and I have been extremely disappointed.
Still, I have been told it is an achievement to make it through to the 2nd round so I wanted to share that accomplishment.
Below are the two images that went through.
The cockerel is part of a chicken/ cockerel series I have been working on which I will hopefully be sharing very soon. The rest of the series is still in retouching but I am very excited about it......

The book was completed in 2005.
I had an amazing time at this Glastonbury, i met so many wonderful people and heard so many amazing stories.
Take a look at the book to find out about my experience......

My very first book.
Inspired by making my Memories book into a video, I dug out my very first book project. There will be more to follow, I am going through the archives.
This Dream Still Runs was 1 in an edition of 2 and is more like an Artist's Proof. Edition 2 was a lot more polished/ tidier but sadly Edition 2 no longer exists so this is the only one remaining.
I made 'This Dream Still Runs' while still a student.
I had been away for the Summer and fallen madly and deeply in love whilst working in Italy. I was lost on my return and was yearning to be back there.
My Photography tutor (the renowned John Blakemore) called this book 'photo therapy'.
Another nice thing about this book is that is a concertina. You can't really see that in the video but it opens out into one long strip so all the photos become one long adjoined sequence or storyboard. I LOVE concertina books.....you can't get those from Blurb!
