Representatiion on the Line: (Un)framing our Identities
You are invited to the launch party and private view of this collaborative
exhibition from the RPS Hundred Heroines initiative, in which female
photographers explore the theme of identity.
I will be exhibiting a series of portraits illustrating modern gender
performance and the new gender-fluid approach to beauty without boundaries,
originally commissioned for Perfect Bound magazine.
I hope to see you there!

I am truly delighted to receive a prestigious Association of Photographers'
The AOP Awards are generally acknowledged as the photography BAFTAs and
gold is their highest accolade. There is no given with a gold; some years
there are none awarded, it is simply at the discretion of the judges.
This year there were eight golds and two of them went to women photographers,
this ratio reflecting the current statistics of women photographers working
within our industry.
I received my award in the Fashion & Beauty category, and my fellow female
awardee is the talented Tina Hillier for her Documentary series.
Click to see all of this year's finalists.
My thanks to all of the team who worked on this story with me: Art Director
Jo Bell, Stylist Maria Francolini, Hair & makeup Lizzie Court, Photo Assistant
Julie Stewart and of course Liddie Holt & Vincent(pictured) and Forever
Young magazine for publishing.
Although the nature of our industry has changed in recent years as traditional
magazines disappear from the newsstands, it is our love of photography
that continues to fire our passion to create what we always hope will
be beautiful, memorable imagery.
Pictured with me above are my friend and talented art director Jo Bell, and
also my wonderful and supportive agents Anita Grossman & Rosie Harrison
of A&R CREATIVE who have been representing me a record-breaking twenty five years!
Massive thanks to Clara Mercer from the British Fashion Council who judged
my category and chose my winning picture! And to Seamus, Rachel, Nick and all
team AOP for putting on a cracking show at the East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf.
See you all next year!
p.s. The exhibition showing all 200+ Awards finalists is still on show
at One Canada Square until the end of May and, as overheard at the Awards
party, "I've just seen the exhibition and was surprised at how much better
the pictures looked in print than on my screen." Now there's an idea...

I'm pleased and honored to have my photograph of the Buddhist Monk
Emma Slade chosen for the shortlist of The Portrait of Humanity Award.
This is a new global award founded by the British Journal of Photography
and Magnum Photos. My photograph will be included in the accompanying
book and winners will be announced at the launch event on May 23rd.
The picture unfolded between takes on a portrait assignment for Perfect
Bound magazine. The Long Goodbye shows a genuine moment of emotion as
Buddhist Monk & charity founder Emma Slade says farewell to her friend
Fitch, the graceful Great Dane who sadly passed away a few weeks after
the photograph was taken.
Previously a London investment banker Emma turned to Buddhism after
being kidnapped and held hostage at gunpoint whilst on a business trip
Many thanks again to Emma, and Fitch's owner Michelle Parker.
Also Madeleine Smith, Julie Read & Betty Brigstocke-Williams.
