I’ve recently returned from the Photolucida review event in Portland, Oregon where I met with several (mainly west coast) gallerists and curators. More on the outcomes of those meetings in future posts! Meantime I’m happy to announce that I’ve  been selected (for the second year running) as one of the winners of the Magenta Foundation’s 2013 Flash Forward Competition for emerging photographers.

My ‘Avalanche UK’ project was selected by Sara Knelman (Talks Programmer, Photographers Gallery) and Rebecca McClelland (Group Photography Editor and Creative Director of the Ian Parry Scholarship).

The work will be published in the Magenta Foundation catalogue and feature in Flash Forward Festival events in Toronto, before touring to various venues.

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.
