The Open Road

And sticking with the theme of photography (what my blog mostly seems to focus on these days…), here is a lovely new book from Aperture, examining the American Road Trip as a theme of 20th century photography. Super nice.

The Rehearsal of Space and the Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite

The Rehearsal of Space and the Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite / Edgar Martins, 2014

The Rehearsal of Space and the Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite / Edgar Martins, 2014

One of my favourite photographers, Edgar Martins, has just released his latest body of work. He spent the last few years documenting the European Space Agency, and the result is a breathtaking visual survey of this scientific world.

The project is currently on show at the Wapping Project Bankside – I urge you to go and see these prints, some of which are up to 2m in size. Also, the book is available now via The Moth House.

NEW — photography portfolio

Untitled, Hastings / Tim George, 2013

I’m very pleased to announce that my photography portfolio now has its own dedicated website.

I’ve been using Flickr for the past few years, but recently I’ve been taking my photography practice much more seriously and, as such, I thought it was about time my images were on display somewhere a bit more bespoke.

You can visit now at: photo.tim-george.co.uk

Thanks for looking!

Also, a quick note to say this is the first site I’ve built on the Cargo platform, and I found the whole experience absolutely fantastic. Over the last few years I’ve experimented with a lot of the new hosting sites – Squarespace, Koken, etc – and Cargo really blew me away with its simple design, flexibility, and ease of use. Top marks!

A Sense of Place‘ is a major new photography exhibition currently showing in Brussels, Belgium. Bringing together an incredible range of talent, including such legends as Vitali and Gursky (above), the show aims to document modern European Landscape across the continent.

The show also features Sennep’s own Tudor Prisăcariu (below). Check it out!

There’s a beautiful hardback catalogue coming soon too. Definitely worth investing in.
