January & February 2016 (archived post)

After my initial research trip last August, I returned to Salisbury Plain during wild & windy weather. I’ve started to get to know the landscape & am setting up interviews with local people.

On 15 February, I was invited by Rupert Cox at the University of Manchester to give a Guest Lecture on my photography (& use of sound) to MA students in the Anthropology Dept. Had a brilliant time and enjoyed reconnecting with Rupert, an anthropologist/sound artist interested in sensory ethnography (see his fascinating work Air Pressure, made with Angus Carlyle).

18 February I gave a talk about my photography at the City Literary Institute (City Lit) in London, invited by Shirley Read. Much enjoyed re-connecting with Shirley & meeting the photography students there.
