Well, I've been out of action for a while but was at Wing Shya's opening last night and bumped into Patrick and the AND crew who reminded me of my responsibilities as an artist on this site! So, here's the first blog in many months.
I've just been around the world part vacation but part research for upcoming exhibitions. While away I set myself a little project, to cross paths with various people important in my life and shoot them. Here are a few of the results so far. It's an ongoing project that will eventually lead to a book. I'm now shooting people in Hong Kong so I'll add those when I've done them.
The people won't mean much to you, dear reader, but they mean a lot to me.
First stop was Sydney, Australia
My surf buddy, Chris Jones at a very cold and sharkey NSW northern beach.
Crabs at thee fish market, cheap and yummy.
retro lounge Hawaii
volcanic rock on the big island
my Hawaii surf brother, Punchy. This is actually a 30ft drop though it looks like he's walking on water.
Post office boxes
Hawaii is kinda redneck.
Lots of big tricks in Hawaii, most for sale because of the oil prices.
Airport on the way to LA
Quiet corner of Honolulu airport.
Corey outside the Gehry designed Disney concert hall.
Conan Hayes, superstar surfer and boss of RVCA clothing.
Darryl Griggs, DJ from Sugar and Volar now living in London.
Ex Hong Kong and now superstar DJ Lee Burridge.
Brighton pier again, interesting to me because a lot of my installation works relate to carnival and fun fair.
My '68 Pontiac Firebird, rusting away in my brothers back yard. Beats renting when I'm back home though...
