Paul Graham A1- the great North Road

Paul Graham, from 'A1 - The Great North Road'

Haven’t posted recently again. Not that I haven’t been doing anything though, it’s more that I’ve been looking at others a bit more and then separately also trying to work out what the point is of the next thing I shoot.  That and a million other things. God, life is busy sometimes!

Everything is continuously punctuated by blown awayness. For me at the moment it is all about unearthing; I feel like I’m making up for lost time somehow.

The internet is great. It’s at once mountainous but also, inevitably, inspiring. Here is my current list of faves as of Nov 2011, the month of my 26th Birthday. I’ve enjoyed checking these guys out so I hope other people will find them interesting as well:

Walker Evans

Simon Roberts

Tom Hunter

Alec Soth

Vanessa Winship

David Monteleone

Yael Bartana

Walid Raad

Nadav Kandar

Simon Norfolk

Taryn Simon

Broomberg and Chanarin

Stephen Shore

Miriam O’Connor

Thomas Struth

Paul Graham

The good thing is that this doesn’t feel like proasic study, it’s just immensely enjoyable. I guess that’s a good place to be.

  1. cool photos. I don’t know which I like more – the dark, urban or the colourful, natural.

  2. oh i love both for different reasons too, they’re both such great images…

    plus it’s interesting that how, as both from british photographers, those two photographs and the projects from which they are from are very much chatting to each other about Britishness, our history, and identity in their own particular ways…
