Hive Jacked

Honoured to have been asked to participate in Hivejacking. The photo at North Pier of the Girl with the Pearl Earring looks fabulous. 

From the Visit Blackpool website: HIVEArts are ‘Hivejacking’ the 14 stops between the South and North piers, with each shelter along the route displaying large scale works from two different artists representing a cross section of styles and imagery from 28 members of Blackpool’s artistic community.
The artists involved have previously worked and exhibited with local community arts groups HIVEArts and Arrested ReDevelopment, with huge and continuing support from HIVE café on Church Street. Building on previous successful local and national exhibitions held at HIVEBpl, and with the much-appreciated support of Blackpool Council and Blackpool Transport, this project will bring a free open-air art exhibition, with access for all, to the Promenade.
The works will be on display from Friday 18th December 2020 to Saturday 2nd January 2021 at each stop on both sides of the tracks. 

Please stick to all social distancing rules in place when veiwing the art work.

PH museum mobile phone book

More good news from 2020. The above image of Oliver will be included in the second PH (Photographic Museum of Humanity) mobile photography book.  Also grateful for shutterhub mentioning the good news on twitter and instagram. 

Mobile devices are often the main vehicle through which we document our everyday life. In light of the COVID-19 crisis, PHmuseum dedicated the 2020 Mobile Photography Prize to explore and understand that surreal moment.

INSIDE is the result of that collective visual reflection on the pandemic. Which are our own personal and collective feelings? Which are the defining values of this historical transition and our expectations to get out of it stronger and wiser? How it is redefining the relationship with our home, family and community? The publication reflects on this historical transition, becoming a medium to immortalize and remember these unprecedented months. Its images speak about these months, about how the world stopped and we all had to confront with our fears and hopes for the future. Images that can become an inspiration for us after the crisis and an important document for the generation to come.
