Cyphers Blog is now launched.

I have finally found a bit of time to launch the Cyphers Blog – this is a huge project which will become the visual archive to my working methodologies. Images will become linked in various ways; tags, visual associations and other forms of contextual referencing. Hopefully over a period of time the sheer volume of the posts will help visitors to my website and blogs to understand more about why I photograph the way I do and how my own working methodology has evolved over the years. It is designed NOT to be chronological. And the blog itself represents a continuous “works in progress” – some of it will be documenting old projects and some, the preparatory research, for new ones.

H Gallery is very pleased to announce an international exhibition of artists who highlight the physical form of representation. Including a diverse array of media and methods – sound, text, photography, installation and painting – Surface Depth explores how form guides significance, concealing as well as revealing and shifting and altering the familiar or expected in ever-new and provocative directions. All the artists address the broad contexts of representation in terms of the popular and the elite and the political and the personal. In a local context where representation remains a volatile means of expression, Surface Depth promises a nuanced and critical view of how it is intended that we understand, and therefore reflect on, the world we live in. The diversity of the artists is a key to the impact of Surface Depth and includes recent Bangkok émigré Simon Larbalestier, famed for his photographs for music albums, and Arin Rungjang, whose work with space and representation has been selected for inclusion in the 3rd Singapore Biennale 2011. As well as Thailand, the artists hail from New York, Britain and Italy.
