stating the obvious...






IMAGES taken in my back garden this morning. Oh how I love the snow! The wheel-barrow photograph has to be my favourite.

Metropolitan Representation








IMAGES taken in Liverpool City Centre. Snapped for a project 'What Lies Beneath' with my chosen theme being 'Urbanized Street Art'... I believe these images represent my theme well.

'THE Bees' are currently supporting Paul Weller on his tour, and after seeing them live on Wednesday night I immediately fell in love with this song... Great song and great video!
(Hoping to be impressed with their CD I've just ordered)

Lilly Heinne at Topshop








Lilly Heine will be one of three Central Saint Martins graduates who will have one-off pieces from their MA collections stocked at Topshop from this December 2010, alongside Matthew Harding and Simone Rocha. My favourite piece being the second grey and yellow t-shirt dress, simplistically satisfying in every way.

Modfather salutes John Lennon

video






PAUL Weller paid tribute to John Lennon at his ECHO arena concert on Wednesday night. The former Jam front man started the show with two Lennon songs as his own personal tribute to one of his key musical inspirations. Weller was consistently brilliant throughout the whole of his concert, definitely topping his concert I attended in 2008.

ideological constructs?

'Euphoria'


'Necessary Illusions: Scratch-Painting'

'The Superficial Transparency of Everything: Scratch-Painting'


'Sex Doesnt Sell: Scratch-Painting'

NICK Ruston, British artist and sculptor, know for his scratch paintings depicting and subverting contemporary popular culture, has released a stunning print finished with the flavouring MSG on the lips so she tastes as good as she looks. His unusual creative technique of Scratch-Painting is most definitely his USP for the majority of his work.

David Longshaw








TODAY I attended 'Finishing School' as part of the Liverpool Design Festival. Finishing School aims were to offer fashion designers a comprehensive and expert range of continuing professional development workshops. It was for all fashion designers and those working in related industries, whether they had established business', just starting off, or still studying. I had the privilege of having a one-to-one session with Central Saint Martin and RCA graduate David Longshaw, which I found extremely helpful in my quest to break into the fashion industry. These images are my favourite pieces from his RCA (MA) Collection. I love his use of softened pastel colours and his feminine twists on unusual fabric manipulations. I will be looking forward to seeing more of David’s work.

Student Protest, Liverpool








'EXTREMELY Satisfying' would best describe my feelings about attending this protest today. Being applauded as we walked and chanted through the city, gave me a great sense of pride about being a part of this march. Although personally, I still think the media are only showing the negative side of the protesting, as the protest today was completely peaceful and only managed to make regional news, not national. I must also point out that as a city, we have the greatest sense of humour... Some of the signs made were genius!

camden 2




TODAY I visited Liverpool Heritage Market, a very UN-successful trip to say the least! Not a complete waste of time as the Dock Road is a great place to do a spot of photography, these are some of the images I took today.

Skegness









DISPOSABLE cameras are my new best friend! All of these images were taken on Skegness beach and pier, hence the name of this post. The first 5 images were taken with a disposable, the last 2 with my digital camera. I absolutely love the effect you get from using disposables, reminiscent of the great David Bailey's photography during the 1960's period (were his work was at its best).
