Great to see you all for the Of The Afternoon pop up this week! Thank you to everyone who came along and to Frontier for providing the drinks!

I would also like to take the opportunity to plug the gallery- the Darnley Gallery is part of the Centre For Better Health, which is a wonderful charity which promotes well-being and supports recovery from mental distress.

My friend Cirillo does an amazing job of running the space and to hire the gallery is just £100 per week. Not only do you get the most affordable gallery space in London with it’s very own beer garden, you are most importantly contributing to a great organisation.

"We often take ourselves too seriously as photographers. Sublime meanings are superimposed on to photographs to give them more depth and righteousness, when we could simply just enjoy them for what they are. I present ‘Adventure’ to you, a concept borne out of a frustration of continual seriousness. 

I would like to introduce Theo Acworth’s ‘Riding Bikes into Hedges & Other Adventures’ which caught my eye at a recent graduate show and Tom Calvert’s ‘Finding Tom Calvert’, where he follows a path previously trodden by an author who shares his name. 

I’ll take you on a journey through back gardens to the peaks of the Lake District, offering humour and respite from Roland Barthes quotes.”

A very big congratulations to the guys at Splash & Grab who recently reached their Kickstarter target to get the magazine printed! The launch is on the 19th July at the Portobello Photography Gallery (it’s a wonderful new space, has a great buzz about it!).

You may have noticed me plugging a Kickstarter project recently for photographer Rosie Barnes’ book, Understanding Stanley. The project was successfully funded and I was excited to pick up my copy at the weekend. I have so much love for this project. Not only is it a beautiful photo book, but it is also an informative piece of writing, promoting the understanding of autism. #rosiebarnes #understandingstanley
