Maize maze

Since Spring is nearly here, it's time for a post about Autumn. Back in October, I was in NYC, and some friends and I drove upstate to a farm for FALL MADNESS. It was as it promised: mad. I fired a corn cannon, a pumpkin slingshot, watched a pig race, and saw kids playing in a giant shed filled with 3 feet of dried corn kernels. Apple cider and ornamental gourds were also involved. It was all deeply American (except for the pig race, which I've seen in the UK too), not least the landscape. Look at this place. These are photos from the Maize Maze and the Pumpkin Patch. Alliteration is a big deal in fall.

Strange seeing these after 5 months of grim, grey UK days. I can't believe I've ever seen skies this blue.

I thought I might've just posted the arty shots above but no, fuck it, if you're anything like me you also wanna see the pig race and the bizarre gourd pile and the angel deer straight from a heaven whose nose I touched and it was soft. See below.

New York Stories: English

new york stories returns

New York Stories returns! I only had to take, like, eight months off to get back into the project. I kept a huge list of things-that-happened-in-NYC while I was there, and now I've been away for a while, the urge to record them is kicking back in. New York, you are a good time.

Stocking the medicine cabinet for all possible eventualities.

Mum's studio

It's mother's day, which seems a good time to post these photographs. I took them at my mum's open studio a few months ago. She's a painter, with an incredible eye for pattern and colour - not to mention, y'know, an amazing mum and general badass powerful woman. So this is a tiny tribute to her and her work. Here you go. Thanks for everything, mamma.

You can see more of her work on her website, When I look at it I actually can't believe how prolific she is. Somebody give this woman a contract to design all the textiles, art, and wallpaper for a palace somewhere.

Here's another photo from her studio building: it's huge, but I like it. The shared phone in the corridor between many studios. Evidence that artists work here.
