OK, I have set up an account at Flickr. This is mainly a way to display work to people in a more coherent way than I can on my blog. I have a few things up, and will, as time allows, get more up over the next few weeks.

You can find it here. I might even get a website done soon. Teaching myself how to do it.



I always feel so naughty when I take these

I also like the health warnings about fast food and smoking. The no raising your hand one is good to.

Cliché revisited

OK, so I think there might be some mileage in this idea.

So, these are two modernist cliché shots, obviously I hope.

Photographic exhibition

For those of you in Hong Kong there is a very good show of street photography on at the moment at Shanghai Street Art Space, 404 Shanghai Street, Yaumatei.

The show is called Safe Distance and is by my friend EC. Go see it, it is very good. Really.

The pants


Street photography

My idea of street photography is some what more literal than others I think.


Timeless Public Art

As you may well know, I was in New York recently. That trip included a visit to friends in Washington DC.

We had a great time (thanks Diana and Sam).

DC is am interesting place (and if you visit from NY, do yourself a favour, take the train, it's a great trip) that I hope to return to again one day. A weekend was not enough. Especially a weekend when I got sick......

Part of my desire to visit DC, along with seeing friends I haven't seen in a long time, was to see a set of paintings at the National Gallery of Art. Barnett Newmans' Stations of the Cross

I was not disappointed when Rachel walked up to me and said "there is something you have to see" and lead me into the room. These are great works. Up there with the best of the Fra Angeleco and Giotto.

Go there, see them, and walk down "The Mall" and see the guy above afterwards.

Cliché series

Here's an idea ....

.... a series of photographic clichés...... both modernist and post modernist.

More to follow, if I don't get bored with the idea in the next 15 minutes.


I don't often take photographs of people

Or more to the point, I am not often happy with the ones I take.

But sometimes I am.


Something for the weekend sir?

OK, the title is very obscure, and really has nothing to do with the image, but then again it does.

A partner to an earlier post, so to speak.



Recently I was in New York blowing my travel budget for the year.

I saw some great art, some OK art, and a lot of real crap.

Highlights? Apart from catching up with people (Hi Mike, Anne-Marie, Jane, Brian, Anne) there was Richard Serra at MoMA, Zoe Strauss at Silverstein Photography, Stephen Shore at the ICP, finding, by chance, one of Lawrence Weiner's manhole covers and New York Pizza.

And yes, China is the "BIG THING". All the dealers seemed to have Chinese artists on the books, lots of artist folders with recognisable (well, to me,) names. Some spaces I visited, I could have been back at 798....

Anyway, continuing an occasional series, people resting in galleries, I give you the Metropolitan Museum's roof garden.
