It’s all about relationships

This year I’ve been shooting documentary material for the project Relational Schools in Cambridge.

Part of the wider network, entitled Relational Thinking.

This particular part of the project saw me shooting images while the film/documentary was being shot at the college in Cambs. It brought its own challenges – when I could and could not shoot etc, but ended up in some fine documentary style images, which was just what Rob needed for the project.

End of September saw the film premiere and book launch at St Catherine’s College in Cambridge. Fabulous to go along and see my work used on such a wide and varied scale – including the book cover and throughout its pages.

Thanks to all who paid a visit to my exhibition over the last couple of days and to those of you who joined me for wine and lovely canapés (thanks to Funnells for those) Monday evening.

I hope the photographs inspired you and from the point of view of the children’s work from Eden School, made your heart warm.

I’m at the Forum in Norwich until 4pm on the 8th August so be sure to pop in.
I was also on Radio Norfolk yesterday afternoon, on the Stephen Bumfrey show (around 14:30) talking about the project and featuring some superb sounds from the children as they sung aloud! fantastic! I’d encourage you to listen again if you are able to.

On another note to do with the project, exhibition and to continue the growth of the project, as well as telling a story of my time in rural Uganda I have published a photographic book.

The book features a stunning selection of my images from rural Uganda, while half the book is devoted to the photographic students of Eden School and their amazing photographs of their life.

The book is available to purchase through the link below as well as Amazon (within a couple of weeks) or if you pop into the exhibition order a copy for £25.00

Of course, proceeds from the book go towards my continued involvement in the project “Give a child a camera”
