iPhone Photography Exhibition Timberyard Soho

iPhone Photography Exhibition Timberyard Soho

Soho1v2 1200x600

 

 

I was delighted that my #iPhone exhibition at Timberyard Soho  has been extended for a further 6 months. The exhibition was due to end on Saturday 30th April but having proved to be extremely popular they have asked me if they could extend it to Saturday 30th October. Of course I said yes! It was amazing enough to be selected to exhibit in such a prime location but doubly so to be asked to stay on for an extra six months. The exhibition is of photos taken purely on the iPhone, mostly in London and predominantly abstract. All prints are for sale, just enquire at the counter for more details.

Canary Wharf Reflection

Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015 Competition

 

Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015 Competition

I am thrilled to tell you that my image ‘Middle Dock Reflections‘ came first in the ‘Your View’ category (the category that includes abstract photos like mine) of the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015 competition! Not only that but two other images of mine were also Commended by the judges, ‘Falling Foss‘ and ‘Stodmarsh‘.

All three images will be in the exhibition which is at Waterloo Station, London, and starts on Monday 23rd November and goes on until 7th February 2016.

All three images will also be in the book Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 9 which is published today.

Middle Dock Reflections will also be displayed on a huge digital billboard at Waterloo Station!

All winning images can be seen on my website here and are currently coincidentally on display together here until the end of October.

Urban Patina VI

Urban Patina

Living in London and being very busy means I don’t get out into the ‘countryside’ as often as I’d like to. I used to get frustrated by this but after a few fruitless trips I decided to make the most of where I live and explore my locality more.

Trying to replicate the feeling locally that I wanted to create in my out of town work proved impossible, I just wasn’t connecting with the images. I decided that carrying heavy, bulky gear around was limiting me so I streamlined down to a Fuji X-E2 with 60mm macro lens and my Manfrotto BeFree tripod. I instantly felt less visible and less inhibited from taking photos as I was completely ignored, something that didn’t happen with the Nikon.

I walked for miles it seems on my first trip out looking for details and patterns and eventually found some old garage doors that had been untouched for decades and was immediately fascinated. The swirls of wood and the patina of aging in an urban environment made for surprisingly colourful images, some due to rust and some to paint I presume.

The area on each photo is only a few centimeters long and would have been easily missed had a not been prepared to scrutinize the surface so thoroughly. I got a lot of funny looks from commuters who I presumably just thought I was a bit mad. Maybe I am but I found it a rewarding and enjoyable way to spend a few hours!

#iPhone Exhibition

Exhibition: ‪#‎iPhone‬ – An exhibition of #iPhone Photography by Mike Curry Photography

https://tyuk.com/events/iphone/

When: 2 November – 30 April 2016

Where: Timberyard UK Soho – 4 Noel Street, London, W1F 8GB

Private View: All are welcome at the private view from 6-9pm, 3 November 2015

I was delighted when I was asked by Timberyard to produce an exhibition of my iPhone photography. Many people ask what is my ‘best’ camera, my reply is always ‘the one I have with me’ and invariably this is my iPhone. To me it is a visual diary of the the world around me and just one of the tools I like to use to try and create my art.

Please come and see it!

Happy Anniversary to me!

Thirty years ago today, to the day, I started my first day as a self employed photographer.

Having left the ‘comfort’ of being a salaried photographer at Selfridges, my first contract was running my own portrait studio in Richmond, Surrey. It seemed very daunting at the time having committed to buy a whole studio’s worth of equipment just waiting to see if the advertising had worked.

But here I am thirty years later still loving photography, still loving running my own business and entirely grateful to all the people who have helped me and stuck with me over the years.

I still have clients from 25 years ago who I see on a regular basis and who I fully intend to carry on seeing should they chose to

Happy Anniversary to me!

Bedoin, Provence with my Fuji GW690III

I have been so busy recently I had forgotten to process these images from earlier in the year from Provence. I decided to travel light and take my Fuji GW690III and a few rolls of film and my new Manfrotto BeFree travel tripod. can you tell they are taken on film?

I managed to find Les Demoiselles Coiffees in a local pine forest, despite being given poor directions a year previously!

You can see the images here.

Anise Gallery Charity Christmas Auction

Your chance to get to own photos by me and benefit charity at Anise Gallery next week at their charity art auction. There are some excellent artists on show so please try and make it!

From Anise Gallery:

Our secret bid Charity Christmas Auction is back! And this year we are very pleased to be supporting The Art Fund – The national fund raising charity for art.

We already have a fantastic selection of Lots lined up from some of our favourite artists – John MacLean, Minho Kwon, Marc Wilson, Rosie Emerson, Thom Gorst and Nina Fowler – and plenty more yet to confirm. All Lots will be on display in the gallery and bidding will be open on 12th/13th December, the main auction day is  Saturday 14th December. This is a secret bid auction,  all visitors will be handed a bidding slip whereby they can place their highest bid on particular pieces before posting it into our auction box. At the end of they day we will open the box and see who had the highest bids. All ‘winners’ will be notified the next day. Reserves will be set by the artists, it is worth noting however that these will often be far below the usual sale price of the work providing a great opportunity for everyone to buy a unique, original piece of art work and help raise funds for a worthwhile charity.

Mulled Wine and Mince Pies

Alongside a great collection of art work there will be a flowing supply of mulled wine and mince pies throughout the day so please do join us at any point between 11am and 8pm on Saturday 14th December when anise Gallery staff will be on hand to talk you through the works.
