Candlelit gig from OnaMata at J.W.Lennon’s on Feb 22nd 2014.
Beautiful sounds in a blend of instruments and genres that takes the listener to a better place.
A very enjoyable performance, the lack of light created some really grainy images, but I believe that they are well saturated with emotions.

And again, Lady Luck and Late Night Players at the Prince Albert, Brighton. January 30th.
Funky acoustics in monochrome. The very exciting news of last week are Lacy Luck and Late Night Players, an upcoming band based in Brighton and Hove that started off from BIMM students. To me each player has a very different attitude and vibe for music but when they come together the symphony they create is very vibrant, funky and jazzy at the same time. As a member of the band says, they just get together and rock out some tunes. A very lucky compillation, I would say.
Saturday Sun’s gig at the Prince Albert, Brighton.
The first time I’ve heard them play and I simply fell in love. Very nice and gentle acoustics with delicate but overwhelming vocals that haunt even after the song is over. As described on their website bio, Saturday Sun’s music is at once “delicate and demanding” (Dayrotter), It does indeed “washes over you like the tide slowly creeping in or like the sun on your back”.
As a succession to my winter walks, I went on an adventure with my fellow photographer Natalie Kate Lloyd in the woods of Stanmer Park, Brighton. Not typically drawn to nature photography I was experimenting with exposure times, exploring the play of light.
Due to the course of events, the Liverpool event didn’t happen and I left the “Picasso Project” unfinished. A few months later, I came across the hundreds of prints I had lying around my house, waitng to be rejoined at some undefined moment in time, and I decided to make up for my model’s time and efforts and to bring a vague idea to life. Taking some time off work over the Christmas period, I am determined to “unfold” this project.
With thanks to Jodi Melody.
On my winter walk in the area of the Cari Mali Grad fortress I stumbled upon a model of an old Bulgarian house as part of the ethnographical museum of Belchin. The re-enactment was so very well executed that I almost believed someone still lived there!
Winter walk to the recently discovered fortress Cari Mali Grad near the village of Belchin, Bulgaria.
The fortress was inhabited by Thracians (8th to 6th c. BC) and Romans (3rd to 6th c. AD) and is later left behind until archaelogists discover its remains in 2007 and rebuild it all over again with exhibitions revealing the history of the region.
