The Stronger Together exhibition lasted less than a week at The Tabernacle and I sold fourteen framed pictures! That’s a good scoreline by anyone’s standards.
Together with co-exhibitors Sarah Ezekiel and the late David Shaw we have raised over £10,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Of my photos two stood out as being favourites. Each had 3 red dots by the end of the show! No surprise about the first – “Suit Event” – which has always proved a seller, but I was made very happy that “Backhander” – an abstract black and white “street” photograph – was so popular. It’s fuelled me with energy to continue the “abstract street” project I began a while back.
The private view was a fantastic success with some famous names dropping by and buying pictures.
Here’s an (ever so slightly embarrassing) snap of yours truly with Jeremy Vine and Kim Wilde:
and a few more pictures from the evening:
Thank you everybody who helped in so many ways to make Stronger Together the success it was (you know who you are).
I’m now itching to get back out on my TravelScoot taking photographs again and having more adventures.
September 12th to 17th, I will be exhibiting at “Stronger Together” an exhibition raising funds and awareness for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
This is a really exciting opportunity for me to show a lot of my work including new pictures that have not been exhibited before. If you are in London at the time do pop in and have a look. Better still, bring your wallet and buy some of the exhibits – all the proceeds will go to the fantastic work of the MND Association.
I was recently asked to exhibit some of my street photos for an exhibition at Tabernacle Arts Centre in Notting Hill.
After much soul-searching, these were the five images that made the selection –

Captured in passing
These two colour shots nearly made it but financial restraints and not knowing how much space I’d have caused me to drop them –
Rooted to the spot
I was also tempted to include this film noir style shot. It’s one of my all time favourite photos but I took it when I could still get around on two feet. It was taken using a Canon 7D held above the unknowing subjects head. As the exhibition was celebrating the creativity of people affected by neurological conditions, I thought including it may be cheating a little. I’ll post it again here though just because I love it so much. I hope you do too –
The exhibition was a great success and raised money for the neurological Art / Science organisation Movement for Hope – www.movementforhope.org. As you can see from these snaps of the private view, there was even an unexpected visit from Russell Brand who seemed to genuinely like my pictures!
