Well here we go again. MANCHESTER PHOTOGRAPHY has risen from the ashes like a branch of CASH GENERATOR after a Salford riot.
This last year has flown by. Been busy working on my own photographs working on other peoples exhibitions and even did a bit of co-curating. I've been spending time over on FACEBOOK, oh it's OK but I've got tired of all the baby pictures and fucking Instagram photos. I hope FACEBOOK bought Instagram so as to close it down and save the web from another ten billion shit photos. Still at least it will give the new wave of appropriation artists something to play with. We could have an Instagram version of Mapplethorpes 'ALTARS' printed by Blurb perhaps. People must have been taking plenty of pictures of there own cocks with their smart phones surely?
Of course that's bollox and I'm a hypocrite, I actually think Instagram is fun and have been playing with it myself.
So how have you been this last twelve months or so? A lots been happening around my way. There's been riots a couple of murders, a racist acid attack, a gangster standing for mayor oh and the BLUE PETER garden is now in Salford. First thing I bet they did was put a big bloody trampoline in there. I'm looking forward to seeing the new BLUE PETER dogs........How to make a muzzle out of old egg boxes
Anyway you know how it works. You send me interesting (mainly) photo related stuff and if it fits it gets posted. Anything Manchester Arts related deffo gets posted. Cheers then,
Love Mark xxxx
