THE BIG STORE exhibition launch party goes off this thursday 13th of december from 6-10pm with a BANG! its an exhibition which consists of a department store specialising in contemporary art and it runs until the 22nd of dec. so its perfect for festive gifts for your loved ones. prices range from €5 to €5000. ive got 3 photographs in there so go and buy them or at least turn up for the free drink... its on in temple bar gallery and studios, 5-9 temple bar, dublin 2 (www.templebargallery.com)
i also did a shoot for mongrel mag too which should be out shortly. heres a taster from it....
(which for some reason when i uploaded it kinda inverted the colours so if you click on it you will see the real shot as opposed to the early nineties techno rave colours you are seeing now)

well well well... lets see, lots of visitors as of late and lots of time skating and photographing on the road around the many concrete parks poping up left right and centre. keep em' coming i say. so yeah our lovely hotel in glasnevin has hosted the uk creature team, a small portion of the death team and the euro duffs team thrown in the mix too- all in the past month so our couch has been getting a lot of love as of late. if only that couch could talk? maybe its best that it cant, but the weird springy noises it sometimes make are becoming a lot more frequent these days. fair play to ya couch, i have to admit i wasnt too sure about you when we first met but i have really grown to love you over the past year. oh yeah and heres a photo of my good pal donny when i met him at electric picnic. someone once described donnys attire to me like this- "you know in old cartoons when someone would fall off the top of a building and fall through loads of washing lines on the way down and end up in the strangest mix of clothes...." well thats how our donny look all the time.

I have a spread in the latest issue of "Stranger" Magazine and its just out today.... you can pick it up at:
Its the 1st time ive ever worked for them and im so happy with how they layed out my work, so thanks luke and co.!
This issue also has an amazing feature on "the art dump" guys who are the creative force behind girl skateboards which is bound to be an interesting insight so go check it out...
this blog has been very neglected as of late but thats ok as it just means ive been keeping busy.... so yeah, lots of stuff has happened. I went to israel with death skateboards to shoot an article for kingpin magazine which was amazing. skated and witnessed some amazing sights and floated in the dead sea like a human canoe and listened to an awful lot of biggie smalls (which aint a bad thing!). i managed to spend some time in london on my way home to catch up with nza and some old friends to skate the new park in cantelowes which is also amazing. been doing a few fashion jobs for mongrel mag too and finally moved into my own studio/office space! good stuff all around and to top it all off i got to play "cars" and smash sandcastles with ruben kelliher in kerry. more news over next few days.
have a deadly morning/afternoon/evening/night....

when i was in NYC i was lucky enough to get to meet the legend that is mr. glen e. friedman, a photographer who played a major roll in inspiring me to pick up a camera in the first place. they say you should never meet you idols but he was as sound as a pound so dont believe the hype....
go check out his legacy at: http://www.southern.com/BURNINGFLAGS/
