Prefab77 at the printers

Posted in Art work, Photography, Screen Printing by Richard on May 8, 2012

Long time friends, regular clients and co-conspirators Prefab77 recently asked if I would come with them to the printers as their latest edition of 5 new prints were expertly produced.  It’s always great to see artists work being produced in front of you, especially when it’s of such a high standard.

Pixels of Pancho

Posted in Art work, Graffiti, Photography by Richard on March 6, 2012

So I’m just back from a nice little pedal down to Hoults Yard in Newcastle to see how the first artist in this years series of the White Walls Project was getting along.  And the answer is: he’s smashing it! as you can see from the pictures below.  Pixel Pancho is going to be in residence all this week working on his wall and some canvases (which I’m looking forward to seeing too), so I’ll post some images of the finished piece at the weekend.

Old camera, new photos

I picked up a lovely little Ricoh 500G 35mm rangefinder at a carboot sale for the princely sum of………. £1.00!! The new battery for it cost me more!  I’ve shot a couple of films through it now with mixed results, on one hand the light leaks are lovely.  But on the other,  just realising now it’s a bit broken and it’ll only shoot in f16 when in shutter priority mode has been a bit of a bugger as I’ve lost some potentially nice shots. Oh well……

Dublin Contemporary 2011

I recently had the pleasure of being asked to fly and to Dublin for a couple of days to document Prefab installing their work as apart of the ‘Dublin Contemporary 2011’ International Arts Exhibition.

Now, who ever made up the lie that you don’t get a hang over from drinking Guinness in Dublin needs a good slap.

Well, it was a long day, but what a day it was!!

Congratulations to Toms for not only winning but also setting a new world record in the process!!

A massive thanks to the lovely folks at Red Bull for asking me to shoot the event.

Paper Girl Newcastle – Distribution Day

Posted in Art work, Exhibition, Fixed Gear Bikes, Photography by Richard on September 13, 2011

After forgetting that I was supposed to be documenting the preview evening until I was on my way there, I thought I’d make a half decent attempt on capturing the actual distribution.

We loaded people up with bags of rolled up work.

And then sent them out riding around Newcastle to force it upon the public

Then we went to ate cake and turn our bikes into Scraper bikes.

I love a trip to the beach on a nice day, it’s one of the reasons that I like living in Newcastle – so much beautiful Northumberland coastline on the doorstep.

“Venimus, Vidimus, Vicimus”

Posted in 35mm, Fixed Gear Bikes by Richard on August 2, 2011

Well it’s not quite “We came, we saw, we cycled” but seeing as the Romans weren’t big on riding bikes……

Hopped on the train down to York last week to spend a few hours rummaging through charity shops, weaving in and out of Spanish tourists, and photographing religious nutters, before getting the train home slightly drunk.
