A quick note to say that I’m going to be talking about my Jupiter Project collaboration with poet Rebecca Goss at an Ideas Lab at the Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool on Wednesday 14 December 4pm – 7pm. It’s a free event, but booking is required (see below).
I will introduce The Jupiter Project and discuss the process of collaboration—what works for us and what doesn’t—and how it has changed the way I think about photography and writing; how they complement each other, but also their separate limitations and strengths. I’m going to be joined by Robert Sheppard, Professor of Poetry and Poetics at Edge Hill University, who will speak about the possibilities and potential of collaboration between photography and poetry.

Over on my photography blog, some pictures of Lime Street, Liverpool, in reflection.
I took a walk this evening at about 9pm as it began to get dark, around a famliar loop of mine near to the Gorse Hill nature reserve in West Lancashire. I don’t often go for my walk late in the evening as this was but I like seeing familiar things in unfamiliar light. It was a black and white kind of evening, so fans of colour pictures look away now. For those of you who care about such things, these were taken with an Olympus E-PL2 and a Jupiter 8 lens.
The dunes at Crosby have been protected from erosion by an enormous pile of demolition rubbish from what looks like Lancashire factories and other large buildings. Lovely sea-rounded bricks. (1968 Zorki-4, Jupiter-8 lens, Kodak Ultramax 400).
