I do a lot of thinking about making, the impact of technology and switching off screens. It seems like lots of others are thinking about this too, although they seem to be better at articulating their thoughts than me. One such person is Elisabeth Bennett who has just written an article all about these topics for Peeps magazine. They asked me to supply the photographs to illustrate the story, and I had plenty to choose from after spending the past few years photographing people at work doing lots of different things.
Spent the weekend camping in Cranham with friends from the Do Lectures. We turned up on Friday night to find the most beautiful field overlooking woods and hills. We also found the most welcoming and warm people. Everyone mucked in building fires, chopping down tree's, cooking food and sharing stories. A special mention must goto Graham and Kate who turned up in Bertha and made the best pizza I've ever had.
There is something very special about the people I've met through Do, they all care about the things in their lives, and you can tell by just hanging out with them. I always find it amazing that in some groups of people you can just click and have brilliant times that just feel effortless, and in some groups, that just doesn't happen. Must spend less time with the latter and more with the former.
I'm already missing that field in Cranham.
In between cover the heavens opened and drenched me.
Every morning (when the sun is shining), the light bounces off the building opposite and fills our studio with sunlight.
