Street portrait: Hare Krishna

I will, one day, overcome my mortal fear of talking to people and get some decent street portraits. I like this image but I was so nervous about asking to take the picture I didn’t catch his name or anything about him, but I did come away with a leaflet asking me to come along to a vegan banquet.

Celebrity portraits: Pete Bennett

Most people remember Pete from Big Brother, but I met him when he was up in Newcastle in the summer shooting the sequel to Zombie Women of Satan. Pete’s a lovely guy, really creative and sweet, he’d recently eaten a chilli so hot he ended up in hospital, and a kid mistook him for Russell Brand in Subway in Chester-le-Street. And here he is, in the guise of his character Bertie Dumble.

A few from the set of Zombie Women of Satan 2, where I spent several memorable days this summer! This is the website for the original movie. The producers are still looking for funding if there are any millionaires out there who want to support an indie film!

Vinyl Social Instax Project

I picked up this record from artist Sol Aramendi’s Vinyl Social exhibition, and thought Instax images would work well with the original ethos of her piece, which you can read all about on the link. Check out her photography while you’re there, it’s awesome.

The models are all friends of mine, are all artists of one description or another, and are happy for people to contact them.

Art I cant take credit for #2: 5Pointz

5Pointz in Queens is one of the biggest and best collections of street art I’ve ever seen. Sadly that’s because it’s one of the few left, a sanitized reservation in a post-Giuliani New York and a post-Banksy world. 5Pointz is strange bedfellows with MOMA 2, the conceptual modern art pile of what the fuck just over the road. Three guesses which I think is more deserving of a platform…?
