An alternative view: Queen of Hoxton and The Book Club

Another weekend spent at these two establishments.

Much to the disdain of the following subjects, I ve selected only the impromptu – and in some cases, the ridiculous. The expressions pulled, played and displayed without knowledge of my immediate proximity are more telling of the two evenings; they just are. Although many of the images are not necessarily desirable, they at least portray the ‘actual’, not the contrived.

In any case, I am bored, bored and bored still by the endless stream of group shots and purposely silly gestures. I prefer the natural.

And the gestures are usually more outrageous. Lest we forget that bars/clubs sell copious amounts of alcohol and encourage entertaining behaviour – for a photographer…

I am not trying to make enemies, really.

Welcome to Jazzie B, Stanton Warriors, Craig Charles and some more

The working party

I am working, they’re working.

Photographic passion begins, continues and never wavers. Even at work, constrained by the client, you can extrapolate personal observations and present them as an essay. I ve only recently bumped into this idea, but already it has affected my  shooting Рat work and play.

This ongoing collection comprises the faces of workers; at nightclubs, shoots and the other wonderful experiences offered courtesy of freelancing.

The thread running through is as obtuse as the observations conveyed.

Welcome to ‘The working party’
