This is the first time I’ve exhibited, but L.I.P. is a vibrant and dynamic group, and the Greenwich group especially active. There is also a link now between the Greenwich group and the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR) at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I am a Visiting Fellow, doing sessional teaching on the Photography and Urban Cultures MA, as well as the Urban Edge seminar series:
There is just one image from each member in the show (see above). This one is from a series on The Urban Forest: Paris and London. I will be showing some of this work and talking about it at the next Crossing Lines meeting in Goldsmiths on 17th August, at 6 pm:
The Urban Encounters Urban Photography Summer School is in its second week, at Goldsmiths, with a great group of students now busy with assignments and course work. They will be showing their work on Saturday 14th August.
As well as the other work on abandoned objects mentioned in my last post, I will also be talking about a short series of photos on objects abandoned in Paris gutters (caniveaux). Inspired by a little piece of jetsam washed up on a beach in Thailand that I photographed.
