Once an adman – always an adman. I recently shot a series of images to commemorate my Grandfather’s military service in the British Army during WW1. He was an Irishman, and like over 200,000 of his fellow countrymen, history has forgotten their service and sacrifice. The reasons are complex and controversial. Even today, 100 years after the start of WW1, the subject is emotive and divisive in Ireland. These print ads are an attempt to rectify a wrong. Time to remember.

Hilarious and unsettling in equal measure. Particularly like the monkey/bird hybrids.

There is a lot of good photographic work out there but little as good as this. Fascinating experimental work from the talented image maker Karen McRae.

These strange spectral reflections occasionally appear on the wall where a painting hangs in our kitchen; one day I took the painting down, donned a lead apron (actually, I don’t have quick access a lead apron but the reflected light seems to angle off the microwave so perhaps I should have) and stepped into the light…

*A (non-scientific) phenomena only occurring as the light shifts into late autumn.
