Dogspace: celebrating the Chinese New Year

pano_dogspace_1500px

This eyecatching pack of giant inflatable dogs invaded the genteel elegance of Preston’s Miller Arcade recently, to celebrate the Chinese ‘Year of the Dog’. It was commissioned from north west-based installation artists Spacecadets. This was my submission to the spring 2006 world wide panorama event, based on the theme of ‘borders’. You can read more about this exhibition, and see the full submission here.

Mick Rock photography exhibition at Voxpop

Manchester’s music lovers just got an extra treat to savour: one of the best record selections just got bigger and better, and the city’s musical heritage is captured with a new exhibition by celebrated photographer, Mick Rock. Voxpop have expanded their operations and moved into bespoke premises on Thomas St. in the Northern Quarter. They recently hosted this exhibition as part of the successful Manchester vs Cancer campaign.

Footnote: Soon after putting this online I found out Mick Rock had linked to it on his website. I grew up surrounded by some of Mick’s classic works, and felt honoured to be mentioned by this photographic legend!
