10 November 2018
The London Photo Gallery will be exhibiting work in Harris + Hoole in Twickenham for 3 months from 10 November 2018 - including my picture Downtown Atlanta, early Sunday Morning (below).
The picture was taken on a business trip to Atlanta in 2004. I had arrived late in the day after a long flight but nonetheless woke early the next morning - a Sunday - due to the time difference. When I looked out of my hotel window this wonderful picture presented itself.
When I took the shot I wasn't very optimistic about how successful it would be. I only had a very simple, inexpensive compact camera and I had to take it through the extremely dirty window as it couldn't be opened. Previewed on the screen of the camera it looked like it might be OK, and then when I saw it on a larger screen - wow!
This went on to be a very successful image for me. I was honoured to have it selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2014 where the entire edition of 25 sold out.
