Slinkachu Store Andipa prints Inner City Snail   book starburst          


Tuesday, April 27, 2010


Belsay Hall, Newcastle

The above image is one of 12 that are part of a new show that opens Saturday 1st May at Belsay Hall, Northumberland, UK. The show is titled Extraordinary Measures and features work by Ron Mueck, Tessa Farmer, Mat Collishaw and many others - all scattered around the gardens and buildings of Belsay, an English Heritage property.
My installations were placed around Belsay last summer and photographed for the show - visitors can now track down all the images around the grounds, placed where the installations once were. This is my first work outside of an urban area and takes on the theme of tourism and the joys of the day trip - so expect to find images of dodgy ice cream vans, alternative 'donkey' rides, toilet queues, depressing picnics, bored school kids and gift shop dramas. The show runs until 26th September 2010.


I finally have some new 25mm badge sets available - as well as an Inner City Snail 38mm badge. Clickety-click below for more details!

Love the new work, been a fan since whenever. Want to buy both badge sets plus inner city snail. Do I have to separate them (payment/post).

Hey I want to do a feature on this little people street art project of yours. Would you mind writing a little bit of info about it for my post? Just some stuff about your motivation and inspiration behind it, your techniques for capturing your photos, who helps you and anything that has inspired you.

Also can you include a list of your 5 favorite songs at the moment? Thanks

Is ist OK for you that I put a link to your blog on my one?

Congrats to your great little works of art,

We visited Belsay Hall on Saturday after seeing your post. I'm so glad I follow your blog as I would have been so put out if I'd missed the Extraordinary Measures exhibition!

I loved your couple on the tin foil and I even overheard a tiny toddler walking past one of the photos uttering 'McDonalds' in recognition.

Great stuff. So glad you drew attention to it.

All i can say 'great hats off' for this post. Amazing work, as the matter of fact i never gave a thought over this aspect of photography. This is called creativity with purpose.
