My Latest Projects
In December 2019, I worked on a commission as a freelance photographer for The People's Picture, led by visual artist Helen Marshall. I produced 160 images looking at the community of Hammersmith, taking images of 36 individuals around town. My images will be part of a giant colour mosaic, across a 7,000 square foot reception/cafe space at Romulus 3 The Shortlands, which is a prominent office building on Hammersmith Road. I have also been commissioned by Cineaste in New York, to write a book review on Mike Nichols: as Remembered by 150 of his closest friends. Scream Magazine published my double feature spread for Christmas 2019- looking at the work of legendary screen actor Donald Pleasence to mark the year of his centenary, and my take on the enduring legacy of The House on Haunted Hill in to mark its sixtieth year.
To celebrate Mae West's birthday on 17 August 1893, I wrote a commissioned piece for Little White Lies on the legacy of Mae as a trailblazer for the women's movement in Hollywood. A self made entrepreneur, she would discover Cary Grant, be the highest paid actress of the 'pre-code' era, and make her money in real estate property, before her death at the age of 88 in 1980.
Stanley Kubrick's unfinished project of Napoleon has been widely regarded by many as 'the greatest movie never made'. For Cineaste, I produced a piece for the August edition, looking at the story behind Kubrick's Napoleon, liaising with Jan Harlan, Kubrick's Executive Producer during the Cannes Film Festival about Kubrick's project. Cineaste can be obtained in the shop of The British Film Institute.
I produced a fourth piece for Little White Lies to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of Quadrophenia, looking into the sixties subculture between The Mods and The Rockers. Conceived as an idea for The Who's second rock opera album, Pete Townshend would go on to co-write the script with Franc Roddam.
The Cartoon Museum has been given a £1 million revamp by Sam Jacob Studios - and has officially been relaunched on Wells Street, Fitzrovia. For Museums Journal, I spoke with Director Becky Jefcoate, looking at the extensive collection of comic strips, books and etchings dating back from the 1750s through to the present day. My piece was published by The Museums Association in November 2019.
