I seem to have lost the habbit of posting here…… It’s all happening over on Instagram nowadays.

My Instagram thing.

Woody…

I was looking for something else in the dusty pile of hard drives, but this Sunday Times magazine piece set me thinking about Woody. He was like a delicate bird nesting in the Dorchester hotel suite whilst the PR machine for whatever film was being promoted churned efficiently around him, passing journalists and photographers before him in what must have been a numbing steady stream…woody


the internet…

I had a look at the place where the internet crawls out of the sea once it has finished swimming over from the USA…


Bjork, some time ago…

Mark E Smith , some time ago…

 

I had a drink with Mark E Smith in the pub behind Manchester’s train station. I told him some important things and he listened. He wanted to leave as “that bloke at the bar wants a fight with me”. We went to some waste ground behind the pub. A few rolls of film later and I drove him home.

Jason Atherton for Square Mile magazine …

‘Social Eating House’ is to my mind a very odd name for a restaurant, but I grew to like it. Setting up our lighting whilst the bar staff experiment on cocktails with the combined diligence of forensic accountants and NASA engineers was amusing. The bar staff were curious to the process and more than willing to stand in for test shots, which is always a giggle. Jason arrived, carrying the hallmark mix of concentrated tension and laid back relaxation that nearly all Chefs of a certain calibre seem to carry…

For a welcome change of pace i spent some time with the spectacularly named Skye Corewijn in her studio. She is both talented and calm.
