The Long Lens blog: Photography with added snaps, art and culture

The photography site for sore eyes. Featuring: Art, photography, performance and theatre. With extra writing because I'm also a writer.

The further development of Performance Photography (very, very short version of previous blog)

It’s the love of photography, of taking photos and presenting projects, which drives most documentary photographers. Showing work to new audiences is not easy.

Performance Photography does exactly that.

Brief explanation: Audio, video, spoken work, poetry and elements of performance is used in a theatre space to show documentary photography projects.

I’ve created several performance photography pieces. They are:

  • Outsiders (video/music/choreographed live performance/75 A2 cards with words)
  • Photographing Fags, Freak and Fighting (video/music/spoke word/poetry/choreographed live performance/ultraviolet light/smoke machine)
  • Nothern World (video/audio/spoken word live performance)
  • Pub Karaoke Photography Exhibition (video/audio/singing/live performance/duet)

The next phase in this developing project: perform these pieces at photography festivals (opening nights/in theatres/in galleries).

I’m available for bookings now.
