Good Night Kiss

Friday, January 28th, 2011

After poring over architectural photographs all day at the European Architectural Photography Prize judging in Stuttgart, it made perfect sense that my fellow judges and I took some respite, grabbed a glass of wine and pored over another roomful of architectural photographs for the vernissage of my exhibition Babel Town at Galerie f.75.

Anna Gripp, editor of Photonews magazine and fellow judge, kindly introduced the work and was followed by Wilfried Dechau, founder of Galerie f.75 (and a talented photographer in his own right). The work was apparently well received, though my eavesdropping on German small talk didn’t account for much of that feedback.

Happily, a number of pieces sold during the evening, the first of which was the final photograph to be included in the show. Taken on the long awaited day the two towers of the CCTV Headquarters in Beijing were joined, the photograph is titled The Kiss.


Flying Tigers

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

To help raise awareness of the desperate plight of the tiger, Chris Bosse of LAVA  joined with the WWF to create a traveling exhibition featuring two massive tigers. With skins of a soft plastic over a segmented fractal metal frame, the tigers have traveled to Sydney, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Berlin before landing in San Francisco to tour the United States. From here, the plastique pair continue their journey through Dallas, Washington, New York and Chicago.

Pleased to confirm the details of an upcoming exhibition of my photographs at Galerie f.75 in Stuttgart.

The show, titled Babel Town, draws on a selection of images collected over the past few years of travelling through the rapidly developing cities of Asia and the Middle East.

The exhibition opens to the public on February 1st and runs until March 11.

LEED Role

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

The David Brower Center in Berkeley, which we photographed for Daniel Solomon Design Partners (formerly WRT/Solomon ETC) has just been awarded LEED Platinum by the US Green Building Council.

The center includes conference facilities, an auditorium and office building for environmental non-profits, a restaurant and a gallery. The David Brower Center is a nationally recognised, permanent home for environmental and social change.  Since opening in 2009, it has become an intensely used and much valued focus for the community it aims to nurture.
