APRIL NEWS

Am thrilled to be the featured photographer on Firecracker this month. Fiona Rogers is a marvel and immensely supportive. She also asked me to take part in Firecracker's first event at the Applestore, 4th April. Leonie Hampton talked and showed her work In The Shadow of Things and Tessa Bunney showed her series made in Vietnam, Home Work. It was a real inspiration to see how they work and to hear their deeply personal stories. I talked about my work in progress, The Letting Go.

Anne Bourgeois-Vignon wrote about the event in her blog, Beanshoot.

Thanks to all of have helped and supported the exhibition. It is a beautiful, sumptuous show of subjective photography.

Here is an introduction to The Letting Go...

The Letting Go is a personal and confessional series of photographs, portraits and self-portraits. The series explores my need to reveal something personal as part of, not only a healing process, but a need to move on and push forward.
I am dealing with my own and others' perceptions of me. Insecurities and preconceptions are laid bare. Through working with many different people during the project so far I have had some extraordinary experiences. Each photograph has a very personal and - for me - fascinating story behind it. Moving me through a passage of unearthing lost joys and clarities long since hemmed in by life, social pressure and personal experiences. My photographic ideas and private notions have been challenged and developed. Becoming the submissive during a photo shoot, trusting others and allowing self-portraiture to tell the story of a critical shift. A vulnerable yet empowering moment. My lack of control through many of the situations created with others has allowed me to let go and open up to a new dawn of life and photography.
