December 2017 – May 2018 (archived post)

During the first half of each year I teach on the MA module in Photography at University of Sussex, and also supervise four PhD students, so it’s all pretty busy – and very interesting. Occasionally I’ve had time to do a bit of work on my new project (working title: The Lacquer Box and The Field Gun) about Salisbury Plain (landscape photography, and sound) and I will get back to that properly this summer.

On 22 May I presented work in progress on The Lacquer Box at the Spaces of War, War of Spaces conference in Florence, organised by the Media, War & Conflict journal. This was a brilliant conference and I had an amazing, if very brief, time in Florence.

I am also planning my September trip to Toronto, where I will be showing The Home Front and also work in progress on The Lacquer Box and The Field Gun (full details coming soon).
