I'm not much good at keeping this blog/news (blews?) bit up to date. Totally rubbish, in fact. I resolve to put this right in 2011 so that my Mum will have something fresh to look at when she checks my website (or is anyone else out there? Hello... is this thing on..?!)
I've been busy checking out other people who are good at staying up-to-date though and have recently become a little bit obsessed with the duckrabbit blog. It's almost unfailingly witty, interesting, irreverent but relevant, to the proverbial point and bang on the proverbial mark. Blog aside, their photofilms really are something special - beautiful in their simplicity. I've been inspired to try something along similar lines. If there are any rich benefactors reading - I would really like to attend one of their training workshops when I return to the UK in a few weeks. Feel free to email me!
They posted a really fantastic photofilm by photofilm.eu the other day. I loved it, so thought I'd share. Bright Brass tells the stories of three street children who play in a brass band in Kinshasa (Congo, DRC). It's beautifully made and if you can watch it without a lump in your throat then possibly you have a big chunk of coal where your heart should be. Let me know what you think.
