Fourteen years into the project and it continues to go from strength to strength combining personal reflections, as well as the views and trends in society globally, of our life and times. Although the images are disjointed in subject and location, all are inexorably linked by the progression of time which we hope will take the viewer on a visual journey through the first day of the New Year hour-by-hour.

You can see all the other 23 entries here.

The exhibition has been featured in the BBC and in The Guardian.

Portrait of Britain

I entered the Portrait of Britain award run by the British Journal of Photography.

They aim to create a groundbreaking nationwide public exhibition that will show the face of modern Britain and have selected 100 winning portraits to be showcased on JCDecaux digital screens nationwide during September 2016.

And two of these photographs will be mine!

I really like the idea and I can't wait to see how it will look. Here are my two winning portraits, both from my story "The Last Of The Fish Porters"

Brett and Jeff, let's go and have a coffee below the two JCDecaux digital screens showing your portraits, shall we?

Photo exhibition at the 1 Berlin Global Forum

In November I photographed the very interesting 1 Berlin Global Forum. It was the concluding event of two years of Global Table talks held in China, Italy, Brazil, Poland and Tanzania organized by the BMW foundation and their partner for the two year cycle, the Earth Security Group.

The focus of these talks was on “limited resources - opportunities without borders”  and their purpose is best summed up on the Earth Security Group’s website.

“The Global Tables have created a new stakeholder engagement format, providing an intimate, off-the-record, and high-level meeting in isolated places in nature, which seek to connect the industrial and diplomatic interests of Europe and leading emerging economies on critical sustainable development challenges.”

I was lucky to photograph on all five global tables and have found this experience very inspiring and rewarding, especially meeting the varied participants from all corners of the globe and hearing their inputs during the engaging talks.

For the 1 Berlin Global Forum, the foundation planned an exhibition of my photos taken during these 5 tables. The curation of this exhibition was a labor intense but very enjoyable process. The creative team at Triad came up with the exhibition construction and the hang. Below you can get an impression of how it looked.

The book "Berlin Global Forum" published by Herder, which summaries these 5 tables with articles by participants and my photos, will be publicized in February 2016. Here you can see the E-Book version.
