I have been quite on this website for the past few months, not because I’ve not been working, but because i’ve been working too much on websites. Red Gate’s website to be precise. I started in December to work out the structure and it was finished by mid July and launched. In the artist’s section you will see the various artists i have been to the studios of and photographed. We will be back dating and updating this new over the next while and making (finally) the art pages to this design. redgategallery.com
During March I was based in Hong Kong working on the finals stages of our art project. I also met up with some friends who had flown up from Melbourne. I arrived back from the Handzhou, Jingdezhen, Shanghai and a day in Nanjing trip and in two weeks was heading off again. Now I’m settled back in Beijing for the next six months. While in Hong Kong, I wrote some words to go with my photographs of Jingdezhen. I made several trips to Mongkok and made enough material for an article.
Each year I make a webpage for public consumption and a book for myself. This is a selection of 57 of my favourite photograph of the year. Enjoy! So now that Raffles City has celebrated Xmas 2013 lets look back on 2012.
I’ve been working on an art project with my artistic partner Martin for more then two years. Tokyo was the last city to visited in the eight we decided on. The project is simple, document as many men as we can doing their morning ritual, in real time, with photography as authentically as we can. The project started in Melbourne, and we’ve added, the Sunshine Coast, Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong, Shanghai and of course Beijing. If the guy said yes, we photograph, the only exception to that has been in Beijing where we have done quite a large number as I’m living here. The photograph presented here is of Shinya, who was one of eight men I photographed in the eight city.
