Still Moving 2012
It's a great photographic experience being part of Still Moving and Your Move at Siobhan Davies Dance.
Big Dance 2012 is accumulating a database of photos that celebrates the diversity of movement in our lives.
Why don't you take part?
I have a selection of photos from my Vinyl Replay project, spinning vinyl in public and private.
Still Moving also allows us to work with established dance photographer Pari Naderi. The course includes group sessions, mentoring, and photoshoot opportunities. We've just been photographing the rehearsals of The Bridge by Janine Harrington. Looking forward to this large scale interactive choreography that takes place across the length of the Millennium Bridge on the 23rd June 2012 from 2-8pm. Fingers crossed for the weather.
This is my first visit to Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. It's a resplendent building framed by sculptural green edges next to the River Thames.
I'm a reasonably experienced photographer, but it's still a challenge to capture the heart and soul of dance and dancers. Not having access to a digital SLR, I'm working around the Canon G9 and utilising some of the techniques (long exposure, moving camera) used for Vinyl Replay.
Archive, mapping and filming
Latymer Projects and I have just completed a 7 week community mapping project and will produce some analogue and hopefully digital maps that are focused on this unique area of North Kensington. I describe it as the Latimer triangle; in essence, the Silchester Estate framed by Bramley and Freston Roads.
We have a stall at the St Helens's 2012 Diamond Jubilee Festival on June 9 from 12-6pm. This is an opportunity to trial some of our maps and capture feedback from local residents.
I'm currently doing background research for a film project about 154 Freston Road, a former day care nursery and now being used as an artist space and the location for Latymer Projects. It will be closed and demolished over the summer as part of a major regeneration of the estate. I've previously made Flood Light and Home, exploring the built environment and housing issues. This new project will complete a trilogy of film work about the area.
