Up since the 15th June and on through Saturday 24th June, there’s still time to get to Barnsley and see We Are Connected.
The Private view was brilliant and I’d just like to say a great big thanks to all those who came to see the work (and me too), it was lovely to see you all and have you participate in curating the exhibition.
I’ve been using instagram as a part of the exhibition so please pop over to see what went on…

If you get to the Civic, delve into my archive, held in the boxes in the window, and curate an exhibition of the work that resonates with you. Then instagram it, so we can see your choices!
It’s been 3 years!
I’ve been working on an MA in Fine Arts with the Open College of the Arts in the UK and next week is the final exhibition. Being part time over three years meant that it’s been impossible to anticipate where I would be at the end of it and it has been a journey that’s for sure.
I have met all of the cohort online, there’s 10 of us, from 6 countries and we’ve met via google hangout, sometimes several times a month over the years, but we’ve never all been on one continent together…
That’ll change next week though when we hang the exhibition! Finally we will be connected physically too – the journey has a destination and it’s Barnsley!
We Are Connected – will be at the Civic in Barnsley, UK
The private view will be on Wednesday 14th June at 6.30pm – want to come? Just let me know!
I’ll be at the gallery also on Thursday 15th, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th, please stop by and say hello!
So what’s the exhibition about? Who are the 10 artists?

It’s going to be amazing, join us on this journey if you can.

Weather has been most un-summer-like
and I’ve missed a few ˈfōtō ˈfôrtˌnīt frīdē posts so…No.s 4, 5, 6!

Nominated me to post a photograph everyday for 7 days starting today.
I’m currently trying to raise money for my upcoming exhibition in Barnsley, UK,
so I thought I might be able to do both at the same time!
I am going to show you photographs that I have exhibited.
They are all professionally mounted in frames with hanging wire
& currently living in a dark, unloved space!
They are looking for a new home, so if you know of one, make me an offer!
I’ll hand deliver in Manhattan, Berkshire UK or if you can wait Barnsley!
I’ll add to this post everyday of the next week, so check back or check in with Facebook

Things are getting weird
It’s like a bizarre dream
A bubble bursting
what we know disregarded
“deconstruction of the administrative state”
but only as it affects the ‘people’ not the people in ‘power’
Public city streets inaccessible to the public
Privately owned public space
a perk for the developer
in Trump Tower 20 extra floors allowed past the zoning regulations
in exchange for a place for the public to sit
and 2 outdoor terraces on the 4th and 5th floors
now the tax payer is paying to protect it
whilst being denied the use of it
Don’t be intimidated
it is yours to use
Two ˈfōtō ˈfôrtˌnīt frīdē in one again!
Time is running away from me but there’s still time to look down when rushing from one place to another
1st Avenue at 97 and 99
I’ve been a bit lax at posting- I’ve been sick and I’ve been marching!
So here are the last 2 fōtō ˈfôrtˌnīt frīdē photos for January.
The first fōtō ˈfôrtˌnīt frīdē…
would have been a more impressive photo from the bridge looking down, onto 42nd Street at Grand Central but..
The Women’s March in NYC – Rise Up – reSISTER!
As an aside the bridge seen here is featured in a very different photograph of mine that will be hanging at Jadite Gallery, 413 W 50th St. NYC – I’ll be at the opening on Thursday February 2nd why not stop by and say Hi!
For the second fōtō ˈfôrtˌnīt frīdē, this is one of five images from my trip to Oxford Nova Scotia currently hanging in the Oxford Riverside Gallery in Oxford, Nova Scotia
in the exhibition: A Year in Oxford 2016 – On show until February 10th.
