This image from my ‘Avalanche UK’ series has been selected for the AMPS Salon at the Photofusion Gallery in London. The triptych is intended to be printed at 3 metres total width but due to lack of gallery wallspace I will be showing a half-size version. The private view is on 6th December at 6.30pm with the exhibition continuing until 18th January.

The Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward 2012 exhibition is opening shortly at the Regent Park Arts and Cultural Centre in Toronto, Canada. The private view is on the 14th November at 7pm with the exhibition continuing until 20th November.  I’m showing the image below from the Huangshan Ltd series.

A series of five images from my ‘Naked’ series has been awarded third place in the Nature (Earth) category of the 2009 PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris awards and will feature in their annual book. The first image in the series also received an ‘honorable mention’. ‘Naked’ is a series of images which feature solitary figures in vast mountain landscapes. So that’s ‘naked’ in the sense of being exposed and vulnerable rather than the literal sense!

Here’s the official PX3 press release:-
