South London Squat

Paper magazine sent me to to photograph some kids that live in a squat in South London. They live in a huge building that used to be some sort of office. They have fax machines in their bedrooms and fluorescent strip lighting everywhere. They don't have hot water or heat but they seem to have more fun than most people.

Alessi's Ark

I have been working with the very talented and lovely Alessi for a few years now. We went to Eastbourne for the day, rolled around in the grass, ate chips at the seaside, and went to "How We Lived Then", a fantastic museum filled with all the best stuff that you can only find in your grandma's attic. If you're ever in Eastbourne you must check it out! It is such a treat to work with one of your most favorite people. She is quite a talent, you can hear some songs here.

I also saw the Avedon Exhibition

but we all know how amazing he is already....

Zhang Huan

Today I went to the SF Moma and found these two photos on the top floor. I have never heard of Zhang Huan before but now I love him. He paints, he draws, he takes photos, he performs, he makes sculptures, he does installations. He is a busy busy bee and everything he does is beautiful. See his work here.

My Trip to the Faroe Islands

I had the pleasure of spending last weekend with a small group of people in the Faroe Islands. I was there to photograph Teitur who is a charming young man that makes beautiful music. We spent 5 days touring the island, listening to music at the G Festival, taking pictures, looking for puffins and not sleeping because of only 2 hours of darkness. This is my visual diary of the trip:

Teitur's house and a horse.

James smokes outside Teitur's house.
Sebastian and his two beautiful boys.
English people (and a couple of Welsh ones?) Americans....(Vermont and California) Faroese and Egyptian, and a Danish/Russian/Anglo.
Janine, Teitur and Nico Muhly playing Paradise City I believe.

Jude Rogers turns pages.
Playing video games in church.

The light in the farm.
Teitur and Nico practicing.
