Slowly and inevitably the chalk cliffs move down to meet the sea.

The Exhibition is up and running

The launch went well last Friday evening, plenty of people turned up and the comments were positive – or at least the ones I heard. On an upbeat note, I was on duty there on Saturday and I sold one of the prints, which was a nice start to the run.

If anyone is in the near, it´s running until the 26th of November, Wednesday to Friday from 2pm till 5pm and Saturday 11am till 3pm at Litvai Galerie für Fotografie, Ainmillerhof, Altstadt 195a, 84028 Landshut, Germany

Here are two photos from the opening

I´ve had a couple of odd weeks. After working flat out preparing for my exhibition which starts on the 28th of October, I handed my prints over to the framer a couple of weeks ago. It was quite a shock, really – what should I do now? And for a number of days I felt rather flat – but only for a while.

We´ve had a real Indian Summer here, but as the days progressed towards October, so the temperature has started to drop. Most mornings we had a fair amount of mist around. I had a shot in mind that needed this sort of early morning mist. It´s a landing stage on the River Isar, it looks east towards the early morning sun. So I thought that it would be perfect for a misty morning. Last week I went there to check it out – but as is often the way, things in theory don´t match the reality. The landing stage had a rather annoying sign on it – I´d never really taken notice of it before. Maybe it was because I´d often run past it and what with not stopping, just giving it a glance, I´d missed the sign. I guess I could have done it anyway and photoshop it out – but it took me out of my stride. Fortunately just a little further up the path, where the Klein Isar meets the Isar there is a rather photogenic point of land with water on both sides. So I took this shot instead. The observant amongst you will notice that´s it´s actually in colour, not black and white as has been my wont for many months lately. So now I have to prepare a print on demand catalogue for the exhibition, which I´d better get on with.

Tallinn

SOUNDS LIKE NOISE

Tallinn

Contact microphones attached to a hotel window

Tallinn, Estonia, 2013. Early in the morning listening to the traffic below the hotel window. The sound of the quotidian sounding exotic in this unfamiliar terrain.

The act of recording that morning has deeply imprinted that simple moment into my memory. I remember a light layer of snow in the gutters slowly melting under a weak winter’s sun, the sound of traffic drifting according to the changes in the traffic lights.

It was the only recording I made while in Tallinn. I preferred to walk the streets without the feeling of urgency to capture sounds.

Years later, on the other side of the world, I listened again to that recording. With the aid of filters I pushed the recording beyond its original form. The traffic droned and washed past in previously unrealised pitches and tones. Somehow this distortion mirrored the evolution of memory, it…
