This image comes from one of my Breath Project test shoots – deep ocean and deep space in a petri dish. The Breath Project explores environment, perception and life-cycles. it will manifest as an art installation and a feature film. More images on my Facebook Page
John Edwards played double bass and Kevin Pollard played Bösendorfer grand piano, Farfisa Compact and Vox Continental keyboards at Snap Studios, London. Each track on the new album has an assigned colour and those colours follow them through all the sessions. Once again Phill Brown engineered the sessions.

Do objects have a molecular memory retained from extreme events?
This is the first film in my new Memory of Objects series. It was shot on location in the Château de Rochebonne, France. The château was originally built in 1628 but razed to the ground in 1799 during the French Revolution. Later it was shared by two estranged brothers who split the house in two. It was occupied by the German army during World War II. This film explores the objects inside in intimate detail.
The Stills page on this site has now been completely re-designed, including the addition of new imagery from the Orchid and Memory of Objects – Chateau de Rochebonne shoots.
Three of my short films, Four Seconds to Midnight, Wide-eyed and Return were shown at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in February. You can watch them here on the Film page.
