Spring Shows. February 2019.

I will be leading another botanical photography course at the Victoria and Albert Museum on 1st & 2nd March. After that, my work will be on show at The Affordable Art Fair, Battersea, London 0n 7-10 March. I’ll also be at Midcentury Modern in Dulwich, London on 10th March and on  11/12 and 18/19 May, my images will be part of a group show at the Dulwich Festival Artists’ Open House. There will be plenty of new pictures on show which I have been retouching during the autumn and winter months including this one, Mixed Summer Plants 2, 2018.

 

Secret Charter/MCM 11.18

Secret Charter and Midcentury Modern Show. November 2018.

Here’s the image which I donated to the Secret Charter fundraising event recently to help fund the art department at The Charter School in Dulwich. Hundreds of artists gave pieces of work including Gary Hume, Tracy Emin and Anthony Gormley. Tickets were bought for £40 and the artworks were randomly allocated. Everything sold out in 25 minutes! The work was on show at the Dulwich Picture Gallery and the event raised over £50,000. Looking ahead, I will have new work on show on my stand at Midcentury Modern, Dulwich, London, SE21 7LD on Sunday 18th November, 10am-4pm. Feel free to contact me for free tickets via my contact page – I often have a few spare pairs.

Liquidamber.11.13

Sweet Gum leaf. Autumn.

There are so many autumn leaves to shoot at the moment, but this striking Sweet Gum leaf (Liquidamber Styraciflua) is among the brightest, in contrast to Euphorbia foliage and a Silver Birch leaf.

Dock, 10.13

Dock seed heads, London.

Walking along Cornish sections of the South West Coast Path in late summer, the deep rusty colours of Dock seed heads were a constant source of temptation for blog photography (see previous entry). Funnily enough though, here in London, riding along a green path which takes the route of the old Peckham branch of the Grand Surrey Canal, these large specimens of Rumex crispus  (Curled Dock, Curly Dock, Yellow Dock, Sour Dock, Narrow Dock, Garden Patience Narrow-leaved Dock) have looked stunning these last few weeks, standing out from a meadow of handsome weeds as I turn right off the path on to Glengall Road. I’ve just done a bit of research on the path ( Surrey Canal Path) and the stretch I ride along has been amusingly re-branded The Surrey Linear Canal Park. It’s a rather tidy walkway but my eye is always drawn by those unkempt, neglected areas where weeds can spread out and really show what they can do.

Geranium. 10.11.

Autumn leaf colour.

It’s hard to pick out any particular plant in the garden at this time of year, such is the riot of autumn leaf colour. This Geranium wlassovianum is always present with its striking red leaves.
