Stolen flowers…

I found one of my photographs used commercially without permission, not that unusual an occurrence, sadly – this popped up in quite a long list. I am not overly precious about my pictures (if I were, I would be more cautious about putting them out there) but I do get irked when people make commercial capital from others’ work.

It’s a shame in a way, though, as I rather like what’s happened to it – it appears to have been turned into a cross-stitch kit…

The clunky copyright watermark on my original below is definitely a case of a stable door shut belatedly! I will be interested to see what response I get from the company.

A Window on Zambia

Source: Zambia

Gill Staden is a mine of information if you are considering going to Zambia: her new website brings together masses of helpful info and tips.


Gill’s photos of Zambia are also waaaay better than my 12-year-old collection; I’m desperate to revisit some time! Thanks to Gill and her depth of knowledge we had the trip of a lifetime both in Zambia and forays into Botswana and Namibia (Caprivi).

2017 exhibition update

Good to see so many taking part – looking forward to the exhibition!

Droitwich Mail Art

The official deadline for the submissions has passed and now comes an exciting time of sorting, photographing and publishing of all fantastic mail art that has kept arriving in last 3 months.

138 artists from 25 countries sent us their postcards and, I must admit, I still don’t have an exact number of artworks. The response was overwhelming, and we have posts from mail art veterans (Ryosuke Cohen, Horst Tress, Katerina Nikoltsou…) and some very young artists that never exhibited their art abroad before.
