On View In Edinburgh in May…

I’m pleased to have my work on view at The Scottish Arts Club May exhibit, which opens on Wednesday the 8th.

My larger-scale work “Red” will be on offer, in addition to a few smaller works.

Please stop in if you find yourself in Edinburgh…

The Park Hyatt New York…

I would love to come back and photograph this place properly – beautiful architectural and artistic touches abound – and the rooms are an oasis.

Now On View at the Glasgow Art Club…

I’m absolutely delighted to announce I have been accepted into the Glasgow Art Club. Since 1867, the club has hosted a rarified list of some of Scotland’s most influential painters and photographers, and today counts some contemporaries among its ranks that I admire greatly. So – feeling quite happy and humbled today…

Three of my photographs will be on view and available for purchase during the clubs spring exhibition, and would love to see you there:

Preview: 22 February
Exhibition Runs: 23 February – 30 March

Japan Society NYC

An interesting snapshot of the avant garde and performance art in 1960’s Japan that veers between the ridiculous and the sublime. The Japan Society never fails to disappoint with their shows…

New work on paper…

It’s so satisfying to see a new image for the first time on paper. The texture and the smell of the ink evoke something digital will never be able to and I will never tire of this. Edition prints will hopefully follow, but for now just happy to have this moment…

New Book: The Suburbs of Iceland…

On previous trips, I – like so many – passed by all of the small towns in favor of the must-see wonders of Iceland. And yet they held a lot of fascination for me – I knew I was missing something genuine in the pursuit of grandeur.

And so on this trip, I wanted to see the places in between. This small portfolio is my experience of everyday neighborhoods in an extraordinary land…


Glasgow

Walking down these streets just before Christmas on a eerie night where the mist seems to take all the lamp light from the windows and spirit it away… and there is just nowhere else I would rather be…

All That Glitters…

I’m proud to have been able to help with both the rebrand and photography for deborahmurdoch.com – Deborah makes beautiful, handmade pieces from her bench in Scotland, and each is a small piece of art.

The Old Mining Town

A few shots from a project that will evolve into something over time… taken in the hills and valleys of an old mining town dearly loved and kept willfully secret by those that live there…

The Renaissance – Midtown

This new hotel near Penn Station was a nice surprise in a part of the city where you really need to be 34 floors up to escape the craziness of midtown Manhattan.

Midnight in Iceland…

… and I’m shooting for my book on the Icelandic suburbs. Your body clock goes a bit haywire when the sun doesn’t set, but it is beautiful here by the sea. There is construction everywhere and clearly tourism is having a major effect here – at least in the boom towns around Reykjavik…
