My work in HIP Fest

This is some of my work that is exhibited in St. Marys’ church in Hull, as a part of HIP fest.

These four pictures are taken in and around a hundred year old smelt work in a small town by the Hardanger fjord, in Norway. The smelt was very significant in the industrial revolution in the early 1900’s and produced among other calcium carbide and calcium cyanamide derivatives, that was exported to Great Britain, France and Hungary. The smelt went bankrupt in 2002 and have since suffered several fires, destroying most of the buildings around the site.

Beneath is some of the tile prints exhibited in another room in the church tower. The series made of photographs printed with liquid light onto ceramic tiles, is called “Bathroom Stories”, and focuses on the bathrooms function as a sanctuary, the little secret events taking place and the evidence left behind. The series was last exhibited in the Bargehouse, in London in 2014, as a part of the TURF grad show.

Pictures from Hull International Photography festival

Here is a hand full pictures of some of the exhibitions in Hull international Photography festival,    -which is still on for a few more days! It has been such an exciting and colourful month (still is), and all the hard work put in by everyone involved has truly paid off, and the proof is in the venues; sparkling and interesting with brilliant, diverse work by artists from all around England, New Zealand, Belgium and Norway. This is only the 3rd year for the international photography festival, which had no intention getting so big already this year, and did not really have neither the man power or the funding for it, but pulled through anyway. Hats off. The council deciding to letting us use two additional spaces on the upper deck of Princes’ Quay, really made the difference. With such creativity, determination, attitude and hard work, HIP fest can not be other than spot on for City of Culture in 2017. I can not wait.
