I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Temple Feeds Teaser

is a photography work depicting the working life of people at Severn Project. Severn Project is an urban gardening project supporting socially excluded individuals working on reclaimed disused land to grow vegetables.

These photographs were taken on the Temple Meads site next to Bristol’s main railway station and in Keynsham the first site that Severn Project has developed. The piece of land at Temple Meads although originally was part of open fields have suffered heavily during the industrial revolution with all the soil pollution one can imagine from oil mills, paint makers, tar and resin distillers. The soil is now have been decontaminated and with brand new soil imported now it grows lettuce for the people of Bristol.

For this work I didn’t only document the place and people but held a few introductory photography sessions to the participants and left them with disposable cameras offering a chance to show how do they feel, what do they think about they working life and their environment.

I believe we all learned from each other during the process and the final exhibition which will be held on the Bath Bridge in May is the result of this collaboration. Here you can see a small selection of the images.

Clifton Hill Costume &Textile

Chapter Two

I have been lucky to be able to document the story of one of Bristol's truly mesmerizing gems, the Clifton Hill Custom & Textiles Shop. After the unfortunate death of Gill Hodder, my good friend Jennifer Ford took over the running of the shop and has been working on it's regeneration for over a year.  While the building work took place she's cleaned and organised the fantastic array of stock.

The shop is now being filled with all the beautifull things cleaned and sorted.  It will reopen during the next week and will be launched in style with a celebratory event at Clifton House on the 18th of April.

To celebrate the opening of the shop, show off some fine outfits and display some most delightful curios, Clifton Hill Costume & Textiles is hosting an evening of glamour, fashion and fun. Featuring live tableaux with models in situ wearing amazing vintage outfits, music, stalls and a catwalk show.
