MY CITY OF CULTURE – MY HULL – WEEK 44

HELLO.

INTERESTING, TOUGH AND FULL OF THINGS THIS WEEK.

FIRST OF ALL – BIG SHOUT OUT TO HULL COMEDY FESTIVAL 2017 AS THIS WEEK IT KICKED OFF WITH A BANG – ANNA MORRIS: THE BITCHELORS AND THE NOT SO LATE NIGHT SHOW WITH ROSS AND JOSH. 

+ A LITTLE PEAK IN TO A SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE @JUBILEE CHURCH

I HAVE THE HONOURS TO BE PART OF THE FESTIVAL AND CALL MYSELF THE OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER.

SECOND – I HAD A BIT OF CULTURE AS WELL AS COMEDY:

TURNER & THE WHALE

Turner & The Whale was no photographs kind of an exhibition, but I thought I’ll let you know that I was there and one of the frames including a famous painting is stunning to look at. Cheers!

ELEPHANTS IN THE ROOM

These sculptures are there to remind of and tackle the social inequality of homelessness with The Neil Hudgell Trust and artist Laurence Vallieres.

HULL, PORTRAIT OF A CITY: OLIVIA ARTHUR AND MARTIN PARR – HUMBER STREET GALLERY

_Z1A0992WEEK44 b

My third time seeing Martin Parr’s exhibition and I brought this beauty with me. I think we together played a little game of trying to recognise locations of the places, whereas on my own I only appreciate the beauty of photographs. Nice change not to be overly obsessed with Martin Parr.

Speaking of which – Martin Parr’s Colouring Book is out and there are a fantastic opportunity to send in the coloured pages and win one of his prints – signed. WOW.

THE SIXTEEN THOUSAND – C4DI

Came back for one last shot of the whole thing and two kiddies pointing at me, because I thought they were really cute trying to find their brick in those sixteen thousand others. _Z1A1020WEEK44 b
