Reena Sali Kallat Exhibition @ MCR Museum

Last night I shot Jason Singh a sound performance artist at Manchester Museum. It was in relation to the latest exhibition by Reena Sali Kallat a visual artist from Deli. For this installation Reena has been influenced by the boarders we create to divide countries, including hybridised animals representing various nations in conflict using mixed media. 

Jason Singh created an experimental style set of intricately layered birdsong, beatbox and other environmental sounds to create a thought provoking piece to coincide with Reena's work. I've never heard or experienced anything quite like it but felt it really captured the feel of the exhibition.

Copy of Collections, Craft & Curiosities with Girl Gang Mcr

Another great night taking photographs for the Girl Gang Manchester event: Collections, Craft & Curiosities. The event has been created in relation to Manchester museum's upcoming exhibition, 'Object Lessons', which aims to explore our collecting culture and the significance of everyday objects and occurrences.  

The event featured show and tells, DIY making, workshops, interactive installations, poetry, music and musings. Plus Girl Gang and others discussed their own significant objects and asked why and what people collect. 
 

 

Girl Gang Mcr - Immersive screening of Bridesmaids

Fantastic evening last night taking photographs for Girl Gang at an immersive screening of Bridesmaids. There was plenty to get involved in last night; workshops about self-worth, healthy relationships and a wedding themed fascinator workshop.

There were activities such as bouquet making, a dress up photo booth and table tennis tournaments. My favourite part of the event was the giant model of the Eiffel Tower, which encouraged guests to write down there own vows of self love onto lovelocks then add to the model. 

I really enjoy being involved in these types of events as they encourage confidence, positivity and fun which makes it a pleasure for me to shoot!

Eco Fashion Shoot @ Stitched up!

Had a fantastic day shooting some of Stitched Up's eco fashion collection. The collection featured some super cute pom pom headresses, embroidered detail jackets, tops and some amazing tassle detail silk trousers! I shot the collection at the Stitched up HQ in Chorlton, Manchester surrounded by sewing machines and tons of fabric!

Eco Fashion Show

Today I was at The Big Green Happening. I was shooting a fashion show organised by Stitched up to showcase local young talent in sustainable fashion design for Fashion Revolution Week. All the clothes were beautiful and each had there own personality. The clothes were worn by models of all ages and ranged from up-cycled prom dresses to appliquéd denim. It was brilliant to see so many creative, eco friendly uses for old clothes and everyone had loads of fun wearing them too!
