Awards from Prix de la Photographie, ParisAwards from Prix de la Photographie, Paris

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:-

Three of my images were shortlisted in the top 10 public vote and the winning image was chosen by leading UK landscape photographer Colin Prior. The Kendal Mountain Film Festival is one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals attracting top adventurers, climbers, film-makers and photographers. As part of the prize I will be holding a solo exhibition at the next festival in November 2009.

Roof Unit Open Studio

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Roof Unit, our studio collective, is opening its doors as part of East London’s ‘Photomonth’. Though new work will be exhibited as prints and digital projection, this is an Open Studio rather than a exhibition – an opportunity for curious folk to come along and checkout our workspace and share a pot of tea with the photographers.
