I like to keep moving, even if I don’t know where I’m going, curiosity always gets the best of me. It’s lead me to dodgy parts of town, secret gardens and in to some of the most bizarre coincidences.
I fully recommend to embrace the random. It’s how I like to work, I like to know some details to help me see clear but its all about capturing whats going on, capturing that moment. Here are some recent movements and the stories that curiosity has got me in to.
I jumped on the Eurostar – London to Paris to shoot some pieces for an upcoming project.
First stop was to see Greg and Jay (Black Rainbow). Their studio was full to the brim of great art, everywhere you look theres a toy, painting or product you can’t help but want. I am an addict to collecting numerous amounts of things that inspire me, I think it is important to surround yourself with content to help your progress.
My next shoot got cancelled, so I had hours free to use in Paris, I can think of worse places to be stuck for a few hours, so I strolled the streets snacking on roasted nuts and took a peek in the Centre Georges Pompidou.
I find people just as interesting as the works of art and couldn’t help but snap away the duo interacting inside.
Two of my favourite pieces in the show :
(ABOVE) Zhang Huan Family Tree
(BELOW) Adrian Ghenie’s Pie Fight Interior
The building itself is incredible and sooo so big, I stumbled floor to floor finding more and more treasures!
On my way back at the Eurostar to head back to London, I sat down puffed out by the day, looked to my right and sitting there in the sun wasSir David Attenborough, not only a British legend but a huge inspiration. I could not hold back and nudged over for a little chat before heading back to London one happy chap.
Till next time Paris.
