A floor has been laid out. Moving green dots on the map mark a crowd gathering. An hour before I’d been at work, planning to stay on for the evening’s film. But I’d picked up on Ziki Questi’s twitter feed that SaveMe Oh was going to stage a performance that evening, at The Josef K […]
Why am I wearing headphones? Am I the kind of girl who goes into a concert and doesn’t listen to the music? I have the answer here…
Book of the Week a couple of weeks ago on Radio 4 was from Landmarks by Robert Macfarlane, and Friday’s edition drew from the chapter on children. It told about Deb Wilenski’s experiences with children who were given the chance to freely explore the natural world. It struck me that the two predominant features that […]
Earlier this month, the garden designer, Dan Pearson, was the guest on Desert Island Discs 1 on Radio 4. Early on he spoke about what he thought of gardens: I think they are a place of escape, and a place of immersion. They are somewhere where you can be yourself, completely.

I followed a link the other day to Ricco Saenz’s blog where he discusses Virtual photographing and windlight tips. I’d been discussing windlight earlier in the day and come to a quite different conclusion. What follows is not intended as a contradiction, but a continuing discussion on windlight; in the end, there is no wrong […]
I managed to get to the opening today of Aspects of Solitude by Amona Savira and Harbor Galaxy. The links are to their photostreams on Flickr. It’s as wonderful as I expected! Well worth a trip over to the Palais Orleans to see it!
This is Rose Borchovski’s installation now at torno Kohime Foundation – the opening night was last night (17th April), where the photograph was taken. It’s the story of Beth and her grandchild Lot, who are forced to leave their home because of a war. The war came to them in stages, starting with rulings about […]
The Arrival: 04, a photo by Tizzy Canucci on Flickr Thanks to Ziki Questi for alerting me to this through her blog – but Rose Borchovski’s fantastic installation is now reinstalled at MIC Imagin@rium. I had a wonderful time walking through this earlier in the year. This really is a ‘must see’.
