Two Projects

Today, I have begun the ball rolling for two projects, an application for a PhD, and a show at the CCP. The show application, will focus on a body of work, I shot recently and may form a larger project, over time; one day a book I hope. The PhD, is at such an early developmental stage, I am reading a book that will help me decide where to go., the book is entitled, The Craft of Research. It has already proved to be a great help.

Is TV Dead?

Jeff over at, Buzzmachine argues eloquently about the demise of TV, the head honcho of the BBC even attempts to refute Jeff's claims. I've long been a fan of the idea grass roots TV that is driven by viewers choice not some programmer's idea of what we want to see, with a sponsor leaning over their shoulder telling them what they are prepared to sponsor. Is this the beginning of the end of lowest common denominator Media?

We can only hope.

A couple of days ago, I commented on the fad that is HDR sweeping flickr, I have found another article on the matter

Social Glue

A new set has emerged from the depths of my archives, again thanks to the application, iView Media Pro.

Several are sitting on the back burner awaiting processing, and at this stage I would argue that I haven't dug that deep really. I have 4 or so years of archives from one camera, plus the ever expanding current catalogues for my recently resurrected Nikon Coolpix 5400.

You know in some ways flickr is to blame, I trawl though the photos of the people I have listed as contacts, I trawl through several of the groups I submit to and they all jog my memory of places and times where I have photographed in the past of similar ideas, memories and experiences, and it's now slowly starting to dawn on me how and why photography has become such a powerful social glue, such a powerful social and cultural activity.

Stay tuned, it's hump day here and time to sit reflect and write may yet be a day or two away.
