The Hasselblad H5D-50c

Really enjoyed using the new Hasselblad H5D-50c on these images.
The high ISO worked really well and most of the images were shot at 3200iso. The lens was also wide open and the quality remained consistent. It’s an impressive bit of kit.

The images were of the new pop up shop and diner in Hackney Road, London and has been organised by Secret Cinema’s showing of Back to the Future. Many thanks to them for allowing me to take these images.

For a full view of the images please check out my website.

Three of my favourite photography books

I love the work of Stephen Gill, a London based photographer. His work is always challenging and thought provoking.
To bury your work is bonkers yet brilliant. Stephen is a true original.

Buried

Buried

The photographs in this book were taken in Hackney Wick and later buried there. The amount of time the images were left underground varied depending on the amount of rainfall. The depths that the pictures were buried at also varied, as did their positioning. Sometimes they were facing each other, sometimes back to back or sometimes buried singly. When burying my first batch of photographs, a passing man spotted me and asked what I was doing. Not only did I not want to give the location away of some of my buried pictures, but It just sounded a bit weird to say that I was burying photographs so replied that I was looking for newts. As soon as Iā€™d said that I looked down and saw a newt at my feet. Not knowing what an image would look like once it was dug up introduced an element of chance and surprise which I found appealing. This feeling of letting go and in a way collaborating with place ā€“ allowing it also to work on putting the finishing touches to a picture ā€“ felt fair. Maybe the spirit of the place can also make its mark.
