Just spent a very pleasant week working at the Museo de Artes Costumbres Poplares de Sevilla. A beautiful museum in the grounds of Parque de Maria Luisa. Below are a few pictures of the Museum and park furniture with added details of the Metropol Parasol at the Plaza de la Encarnacion (the modern structure).


The Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography annual conference 2013


The Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography annual conference 2013 takes place on Thursday 14th November. If haven’t already got a ticket you may need to hurry. There are very few tickets remaining.

There is a really strong set of presentations this year covering a variety of aspects of photography in the cultural heritage sector. If you have an interest in this field I suggest you book asap, the last time I looked there were fewer than 10 tickets remaining.

The full list of speakers can be found at the link below:

Monochrome prints

I’ve been spending the last week sorting out a small set of monochrome prints for an office installation and thought I’d share a few of them here. There’s no theme or any loose connection between the pictures except they were moments in time I happened to see, and lucky enough to photograph and I’d like to think they all work individually in there own right.

2013 AHFAP UK Conference – Call for papers

The 2013 AHFAP UK Conference will be held on Thursday 14 November in the Starr Auditorium at Tate Modern, London.

Innovating out of Austerity

For the first time, the conference will have a broad theme, and this year it is ‘Innovating out of Austerity’. We have now had three years of austerity, so how are image-makers in the UK cultural heritage sector adjusting to these changes, what new practices are being introduced and what innovations made?
The theme is not exclusive and papers on other topics and techniques relevant to our sector are equally welcome.
It is planned that the timetable will accommodate papers of 15-, 30- and 45-minute durations. Please submit your proposals to by Monday 30 September.

For further information and to book a place at the conference see

Recontres d’Arles Discovery Award 2013

Congratulations to Rozenn Quere and her co-contributor Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh for winning the Recontres d’Arles Discovery Award 2013 earlier this month with their series “Possible and Imaginary Lives”.

Rozenn worked with me at the National Gallery for a while whilst she was a student in Paris and it’s good to see she is still working successfully.

Lepe Beach, Hampshire.

A few photographs of a sunny Sunday morning stroll along Lepe Beach. The pictures show the remains of the strategic role Lepe played during the Normandy Landings in the second world war.

Lepe was a secret manufacturing site for parts of the temporary Mulberry Harbours erected for the invasion and was also used as an embarkation point for equipment and troops.

Jupiter and the Moon close together on 28th November 2012.

If you missed it or didn’t know about it, Jupiter could be easily seen to the left of the moon last night so here are a couple of pictures to look at.
