Happy New Year, and all of that.



Christmas done. Back to work, both photographically and keeping a roof over one's head type work. Well how have you been? Did you have a good one? Have we all made loads of resolutions? Make more work. Get more shows. Make better work, that type of of shit. I think one of mine is play more. Have more fun and experiment more.

And on that topic, above is a book I got for Christmas. Keith Arnatt is ridiculously overlooked on the world photography stage, perhaps because he is so hard to pin down he is in my opinion a hugely important photographer and a bridge between photography and conceptual art. Take a peak HERE.

Keith Arnatt: he taught for a while in Newport on the Photographic Art course. Excellent, especially when he was talking about his own work (not a criticism).
