Village Bookstore, Leeds - Preston is my Paris launch event.


CafĂ© Royal Books - 2013 Project.

Books, photographs, and drawings from over 20 countries sharing common themes of communication and dissemination.

This exhibition was new and exciting. As we are currently producing our own publications, it was a great opportunity to look at others work and get inspiration from these great photographers and artists. 

Hannah Metcalfe - This was my favourite book because of the graphic design aspect. The screen-printing technique and neon colours draw me in. This book inspires me to want to learn the screen-printing process

 This is my favourite from the exhibition, a class mate of ours Dean Baybutt. He created a range of slides alongside a slide viewer and placed them inside a loaf of bread. I loved the creativity and originallity of this idea. The shots were amazing and very interesting. - Alex Hartley

I've recently been spending time on a project called the everyday. The main objective of this project is to show there is something interesting to see in your everyday life. You just have to look for it. After spending some time thinking about what i wanted to focus my project on I settled for transport. I'm always on some kind of transport, buses, trains, and cars so I thought it would be a good idea to explore this area because my everyday life depends on it. I wanted to look at public transport and create some abstract images from the spaces the transport services use, I also wanted to create some portrait images and create a visually interesting and varied body of work. I wanted the images to be different in their own way but link through colour. I shot all the images on colour film and then scanned and edited digitally. Here are a few shots from the project. Enjoy. - Alex.
