Hamilton! – Theatre Review

It’s tough growing up as the only boy with three sisters. (Tough for them, they might say). We had a tradition where, usually at Christmas or other large dinner occasions, we kids would be tasked with doing a huge amount of washing up and drying. One would wash, three would dry, usually standing around impatiently waiting for the washer to do a single glass or knife or fork. The tradition became...

Isle of Dogs – Film Review

I’ve seen the film, and here’s my Isle of Dogs review… I can remember feeling vaguely irritated when I was first introduced to the director Wes Anderson in an incredulous manner by a friend, ‘duh, you don’t know Wes Anderson?’. Wait, what do you mean; you don’t know who Wes Anderson is? Okay, that’s hypocritical of me. But rest assured he’s worth looking into, and once you know...

Good Friday Sunrise, Elsa Bleda, and a Podcast

It’s Good Friday today! I’m a bit delayed writing this week’s Friday Review because for some reason I decided to pop out to Burgess Park this morning before sunrise to capture a quick timelapse video of the sunrise. Lucy said, “where’s the rest of it?” – this is about 2 HOURS of recording time. Oh well…  This week’s reading Nadia Boulanger:...

Presence Conference Photography

With Easter coming up I got thinking back to this time last year, when I spent a week in Frankfurt photographing a student conference. Here’s a few images and a little about the conference photography… Presence 2017 was a student conference held in Germany, near Frankfurt. I was invited by the hosts – IFES – to capture the event, as well as to gather a folio of student...
