…and continuing what has been a busy month for shows, I’m excited to reveal that I’m showing more work from my current project ‘It’s written all over your face’. The series is part of a show called ‘Amazing Grace’ along with 4 other talented photographers. The show is on at the Rag Factory, Heneage St, just off Brick Lane. Private view is next Thursday 28th Oct and runs until Sunday the 31st.

shoreditch show – ‘Parallels’

mickster | photographers | Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

“I found a rooming house near my job. Moving wasn’t hard. I only owned enough to fill half a suitcase…” – from Factotum by Charles Bukowski

I’m pleased announce that I have some work showing at the Red Lion in Shoreditch from next week. The exhibition itself is also part of Photomonth, which launches at the end of this week – details can be found on

The show features work from the ‘Parallels’ project, a kind of photographic ‘chinese whispers’ in which a series of images were made in response to each other with the starting point a line from a Charles Bukowski novel. My contribution to the project was shot whilst I was in Budapest, and the collaborative nature of the project was great fun whilst I was away from London.
More info is here:

The show also doubles as the second annual show for the Shoreditch branch of London Independent Photography, and I also have two 24″x20″ prints from my recent series ‘Where I end and you begin’ for sale in the show.

Private view is on Thursday Oct 7 from 7pm at the Red Lion Free House (1st floor), 41 Hoxton St, N1 6NH and all are welcome!

And just a quick reminder that the TVU MA show ‘Close to you’ is still on at the PM gallery, Ealing, until October 2nd.

Some images from my latest portrait project ‘where I end and you begin‘ which explores the tension between intimacy, connection and surface in the photographic portrait. More from the series will follow soon.

Andrea, 2009.

I’ve spent most of December in Manchester doing some more shooting for my ‘Domestic Fables’ project. The project is part of my MA, and i’m starting to feel the strange pressure of having to produce work to a deadline. This is something that every pj and commercial photographer will be used to, but its a new experience to have to create art in this way…Its gonna interesting to see whether this helps or hinders the creative process in the end.

Stephan Vanfleteren

I’ve been in Gent recently for the Zesdaagse Vlaanderen-Gent six day bike race cum booze-up. Its become kind of an annual pilgrimage for me and about 15 friends where we hang out and discuss, racing, bikes, women & the meaning of life whilst getting slowly and inexorably smashed… 🙂

Highlight for me however wasn’t the racing – it was the show of Stephan vanFleteren‘s portraits from the past 20 years. We came across it by chance whilst scooting around Gent in the pouring rain. Housed in a wonderful old cinema building called the Wintercircus Mahy, only the structure of the place remains, and it provides a great and gritty ambience for the work of Belgium’s finest portrait photographer.

Photomonth Shows

mickster | photographers | Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009


I’m really excited to announce that some of my work will be featured in an upcoming show called ‘A Place Like Home’. The show will feature work from myself and two other excellent photographers – Ewa Bialek and Carolyn Lefley. I’ve long been an admirer of Carolyn’s work and it feels cool to be showing alongside her!

The show is part of the Photomonth festival which runs throughout October & November in East London and the City and is one of the largest photo festivals in Europe; I’ve been going to many of the Photomonth shows over the years and it feels great to be involved with it as an artist as well as a punter. I’m feeling slightly nervous as its the first showing of a new project I started over summer called ‘Domestic’. Its based around staged recreations of scenes so it signifies a bit of a departure from my usual portrait work.

The show’s at the Foundry EC2A 3JL and runs from 7-11 October. There’s an opening party from 6-9pm on the 7th and everyone’s welcome!

Also the ‘Paint It White‘ show run at the Red Lion in Hoxton has also been extended and is now part of the PhotoMonth festival: click here for more details and a link to the Photomonth site.
