Secret squirrel project revealed...I mentioned a few posts ago that I was excited by a project that I had to keep hush-hush for a while. Well I've now been given the go ahead to talk about it.
I was approached by the BBC, a lovely lady called Jemima, and asked if I could provide them with a number of shots of Plymouth, in my inimitable style, to be used as a slide show for the soon-to-be re-launch of the BBC Devon website.
The Devon Banksy?Of course, I was delighted to be asked. Even more so when, as an example of the layout to be used, Jemima gave me a link to the already re-launched Bristol web site and I found they had used Banksy's work for their slide show—a compliment by association if ever there was one!
As I was given a fairly free hand in the brief, I decided to follow in the same vein as a previous photo essay of mine that they featured (Urban decay, lost spaces and industrial ugliness). I came up with the final brief, summed up by the title I chose for the photo essay—"Plymouth - intimate glimpses of a hidden and changing character".
Exhibition of photo essayI'm timing an exhibition of the photo essay in the Martin Bush Studio Gallery, Royal William Yard (map), to coincide with the re-launch due on 10th September (I'll provide a link to the BBC Devon website then).
To the many folk I pestered in confirming my research for the captions, I offer my profound thanks :) You know who you are.
comments / feedback always welcome :)
