Unchained London

Looking at where I could buy a toothbrush

March 14, 2010


At current i'm working on a photography based project taking snapshots of people's everyday life outside unchained supermarkets and convenience stores around the outskirts of London. The images I was collecting seemed to be great. The subject was extremely interesting and I spent along time waiting and walking to find opportune moments. Today however I went to collect the developed photos and to my horror not one of the photos had been exposed, the shutter had jammed. I have lost every image and a number of hours of my life. I want to set out and photograph the same spots again but to be honest I've lost heart and really can't be bothered, I haven't got a choice though because I need them and the subject interests me so much.

Memory Marathon

The anticipation leading up to the 2012 London Olympics is growing with every passing week. Whether or not the Olympics is a good or bad thing for the country it doesn't stop us from looking to the past for memories about the global event. I love the idea behind this video, actually going out into the streets and engaging with the people who will be there to witness the event at home in their own country.

Problem Solved

If everybody in London just looked where they were going and always kept walking there would be no frustration. None. Following a group of tourists spread in a line walking at 5mph and complaining that its busy is what I call 'Tube Rage'. It doesn't half get monotonous following the same people for half an hour. Rant over.

Just found out I won the opportunity to study in NEW BLOODY YORK in August of this year for the full 'Fall Semester' (Winter Term)!

"Dear Jack, I am very happy to tell you that your application to FIT was successful; you have been offered a place on the FIT study exchange for the Fall Semester 2010/11."

AHHHH. Look out America because I bloody love tea!

Wildlife Photographer Of The Year

God I love wildlife photography! The exhibition at the National History Museum is incredible. Fantastic atmosphere, great music and really well executed as an exhibition. I even bought a calendar! A few favourites: Eric Lefranc - White-water fishing, Chris van Rooyen - Flight of the locust and András Mészáros - Raindrop refresher

Smudge On Life

A piece designed to withhold information and create a sense of distraction. Structured to fit a story from my childhood.

Smudge On Life from Jack Edwards on Vimeo.

The Story: When I was around 7 years old a stranger knocked on our door with our dead cat in her arms. My mother identified the Smudge and sat us down to tell us the horrible truth, the evil stranger had run our cat over with her car. I was devastated. I demanded a funeral to my dads dismay, he had to burry the beast. Two days of mourning later and there was a sound at the cat flap. Who was it? Smudge. We had buried a strangers cat.
