Gig in the Garden – Action Medical Research…

Now if there is one thing I love… apart from photographing horses… oh and people… and that’s capturing live performances on stage 🙂

This wasn’t so much a concert, as a mini festival  in the heart of Suffolk and a whole afternoon and evening of different singers and bands, entertaining the crowds who turned out to enjoy a scorching hot summer afternoon and support everything there was on offer. It included a beer tent, tea tent, various eateries, giant Jenga, bouncy castles, face painting, putting, laser tag, rodeo bull, stalls… yes plenty was on offer.

The music was opened by the lovely Jade Donno and the evening was finished off with the great tribute band Ultimate Madness. As the day progressed the sunlight got lower and the stage lights took more effect. It can be quite a challenge to photograph, but so great when you capture the mood and theatre of a performance.

Just over 500 people attended and raised in the region of £6,000 for this worthy cause – Action Medical Research – raising funds for premature and sick babies.

It’s definitely one for the diary next year, here’s hoping they do it again.

Edinburgh Festival Fringe


Two of the images I took last year of Juliet Aster working on her visual art work ‘Regretrospective’, are being used to promote the piece at the Edinburgh Fringe. I also turned one of them into her promotional flyer, that will be amongst the millions of flyers scattered on the streets of the big city. You can see a larger versions of these two images – http://pennymorgan.photoshelter.com/gallery/Dance-Art-Regretrospective-rehearsal/G0000FIPQwgNDHtE/P00003z3fyUgheZc

Article in ‘Roundabout’ magazine

Now I know I blogged about some of this earlier in the month, however there’s an article about Juliet, her work and the photography I did of her, in the November issue of ‘Roundabout’ Magazine, just about to come out – so watch this space as they are currently still showing October issue http://www.roundaboutsuffolk.co.uk/index.php – or you can take a look at the November issue here http://issuu.com/heavens_and_earth_art/docs/rb_2009_11_nov_web and view the article (click on black background spread).
I’ve also featured images on my home page of both pieces I’ve photographed of Juliet from last year and this year. Any feedback on the article and photographs would be great.

Regretrospective rehearsal shots

For those of you interested in visual art, take a look at a selection of shots from Juliet Aster’s new work ‘Regretrospective’, to be performed at Colchester Arts Centre, November 12th.

Part installation, part film, part devised dance theatre, the work touches on many subjects, the implications of regret, desire, loss, delusion and illusion and is surreal, disturbing and funny in equal measure.

My personal favourites are the demon shadows – great fun to photograph!
