Nice freebie poster #art14
Kate Shaw’s work was my absolute favourite at #art14 Magical & playful. I saw this on your Instagram @charlottemeddings so made sure I went to see it!
Thought this was endearing, not many interactive pieces at #art14 though
I’ve set up a blog for news from the students, staff and alumni of Middlesex University’s BA Hons. and MA Photography courses. Check us out here
Simon Roberts did a wonderful talk for the students of Middlesex University yesterday. When discussing a Photographer’s working life, he summarised it as 5% shooting and 95% everything else (research, making connections, contacting people, gaining permits for access, sorting logistics etc). He also used the swan analogy, whereby they look serene on the surface but underneath the water line, they’re paddling away very quickly to get things moving. I think this is true of everyone in the creative industries and something that I empathise with completely as when I curate a show, nobody sees the excel sheets and the masses of admin that goes on, they just see the finished product.
Among the work shown was his ‘Motherland’ project which was pivotal in his career and my favourite of his books: http://simoncroberts.com/work/motherland/#PHOTO_0

Love receiving pics in the post- playing around with an edit of Steven Barritt’s work
Looking through an RZ67 is like peering in to a magical world. I will never get tired of using one.
Me and my friend Othello teach a fashion photography course at Central St Martins, run by the wonderful Widening Participation department. Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of teaching lots of creative, super talented young people, and among them is Charlie Craggs (whose name really stands out, in lights in fact!).
Charlie is an exceptionally talented Creative Director, working with clients such as Nike, V&A, Tate and Biba, impressive by anyone’s standards but even more so at just 21 years old. But the biggest accolade is most recent. Charlie is a transgender person, and has set up a charity called ‘She Me Her’ as a way of educating about the many issues faced. I had no idea that every three days a transgender person is murdered and that’s why I am sharing and supporting She Me Her. So here’s to you Charlie and She Me Her, I wish you all the luck and success in the world x
