I’m very proud to announce that ‘Uma, steamy window’ has been selected for YourDaillyPhotograph.com.
Duncan Miller Gallery, curators have chosen my image for inclusion into YourDailyPhotograph.com. They select a very small percentage of photographs submitted, saying “You’re in good company — in the recent past images from Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Gursky, Richard Misrach, Andre Kertesz, Edward Burtynsky and other photography legends have appeared in Your Daily Photograph”
Uma, steamy window is on sale at a very special price for the next 24 hours (May 9th). You can check it out here.
One of my images has been accepted for the BIFB COLLECTION 2014, an annual fundraiser for the Ballarat International Foto Biennale. For now, I can’t tell you what my image is, as all works are hung anonymously, and that would be letting the cat out of the bag, but all images in the show are for sale at the one price $125.
You can purchase a red dot at http://www.trybooking.com/92603 which also includes entry into the event at Gallery Eleven40, 1140 Malvern Road, Malvern, Victoria, starting at noon on Sunday August 31st. The event runs until around 4.00pm. All the details are at the website
Los Angeles’ Duncan Miller Gallery has featured one of my images on their innovative Your Daily Photograph, print collection sale. ‘Uma, bubble gum’ was selected by curator and photography commentator Alison Sieven-Taylor. Alison’s weekly blog Photojournalism Now has a wide international readership and her writing appears in a variety of leading photography magazines.
3 totally unrelated requests in recent weeks have had me searching through my archives. Boxes that should be better organised… but in that chaos there is the magic of surprises. I came across this photograph buried at the bottom of a box of old portfolio prints. Taken in 1994 it’s been a while… nice surprise!
I’m most honoured and grateful to be showing my new work, The Middle of Somewhere and talking with Dinesh Khanna and Raj Lalwani about my photographic journey, following my passion and my long relationship with India.
So, if you’re in Mumbai or can get there for next Sunday (8th Dec) it would be great to see you! Piramal Art Gallery, National Centre Performing Arts, 3.45pm Cold beers and further conversation will no doubt follow…
In May 2013 i was in Sydney to give a talk at The Museum of Sydney. The Future of Photobooks was a panel discussion and part of the Head On Photo Festival.
It was an honour to sit along side Dan Rule, director of Perimeter Editions, Paulina DeLaveaux, publishing manager of Thames & Hudson, Kim Hungerford from the wonderful Sydney book store Kinokuniya and Libby Jeffery from Momento Pro.
Whilst walking the streets of Sydney i photographed quite a bit with my iPhone. I’m getting more and more addicted to shooting with it. I find it comfortable and fun to work with, unobtrusive, silent and always at hand… One evening i got caught out in the rain. Without an umbrella i found a doorway to shelter in and began shooting the passers by in the rain, enjoying the light flair, reflections, splashes and general chaos the sudden heavy rain caused.
Fast forward a month… i received an email from Better Photography magazine in India. They were putting together a special issue on Cellphone photography, had seen my images on Instagram and wanted to use a couple.
So when you post to Instagram it doesn’t have to be the end of the story… It’s surprising where it can take you… I think it’s a fun and fresh way to share images that otherwise might just sit in a hard drive… you never know who’s watching and where it can lead to…
