    Hello

    I’m very pleased to announce a new book and London exhibition for a collaborative project I’ve been working on for the last three years, Obsolete & Discontinued.

    It started when I was given a collection of discarded, outdated and unwanted boxes of photographic paper by a client. They had belonged to his late uncle, and initially I was not sure what to do with them. I soon decided to see what other photographers and artists could make of these materials and the result is a fascinating and unique collection of work. It not only celebrates the diverse possibilities of analogue photography, but also the potential which such a collection of forgotten materials can offer.

    More information at the website: https://obsolete-discontinued.com

    We’ve launch an Indiegogo crowdfunding page to help fund the book which will be published soon. It features the work of 56 participants from 14 countries.

    The work has previously been exhibited at Revela-T festival in Villasar de Dalt, Spain and the Schaelpic Photokunstbar in Cologne, Germany.
