AKQA

Ethnography and/or brand journalism appears to be a good route forward; it pays, challenges and keeps me more than occupied.

This job involved meeting a variety of people and reporting on their spending habits; what they buy and how technology helps them to do it – or not.

It was great and I had the pleasure of meeting some truly wonderful people.

Er heisst Walter Kurz

In another life, I wish to be called Walter Kurz.

This summer, a friend of immeasurable kindness allowed me a short week in Germany. My stay intercepted, not only the finest of fine suns, but also the pleasure of watching Germany lose out to Spain in South Africa – in spite of my friend’s nationality, which happened to be quite unfortunate at that particular time.

Autobahns, Holstein Pils, lakes, Hamburg and Berlin became our staple throughout.

I haven’t much thought of posting these loose photo essays. Perhaps they’re interesting.

Playtime launch

Located on Islington Green, a few steps from Upper Street, Playtime is a swish cocktail bar offering a fine selection of drinks and an even more impressive selection of interior design and art.

This Thursday, the venue played host to a private gathering of friends, notables and press to celebrate the new artwork exhibited by Robert Gordon McHarg III; Gordon is perhaps best known for his quirky Subway Gallery found in Edgware Road tube station. The bar looks cool, feels trendy and the cocktails, superb.

A Bloc Party DJ set, a hula hooper, and an intervention group of semi-clad, cross-era swimmers entertained the ‘cocktailed’ guests with zest and zeal – all were contented.

And this is how it all appeared to me:

It’s a venue worthy of a visit.

Queen of Hoxton Exhibition

All photos are under copyright and belong to George P Ramsay

It must have been early last year, perhaps even the year before that; I must find out in any case. A friend, Hunter Skipworth, and I were asked to shoot twenty photographs for a new bar, the Queen of Hoxton, found between Bishopsgate and Hoxton.

I’d never been so fortunate before this, and I became rather unstuck in the preparation for the opening night. It was a tough deadline. That said, despite the problematic mounting of the photos on the wall and all others worries, it was great funĀ  – and highly rewarding.

We decided to shoot both in black and white and colour.I took the black and white, and this is the result (some of which I am unsure, but we were only novices).

They are still on show and are available to purchase.
