Edition 2 / 5

On my travels I get challenged to take unique photos of place. I was challenged to take a unique photo of the famous Peal Tower in Shanghai and this was it. The photo made an instant impact and was nominated for a Sony award. It was a black & white shot but I decided to add a green tint to it before putting it on limited edition canvas. My preferred medium is my photos on limited edition canvases. sometimes it just the photo and sometime I turn a photo into art work. (It will be signed with authentication certificate.

I'm a multi platform artist making a dent in all the arts, including writing and music. (10 books & 300 music releases as record producer and 50 song releases)  whilst producing and writing songs for my ex pop star wife she asked me to take a few photos as she didn't like some featured in the music press. Many people called them iconic. I was then asked to do her album sleeve and posters which seemed to make a big mark with some asking me if David Bailey did them. People were always saying I should take photography more seriously. I thought about it but had too much on my plate with the music but each time I took a photo the same thing happened. I took some photos for another singer and this ended up in nearly 100 publications and many have said this shot, known as Misty Cello has been influential on other photographers.  But still I resisted my calling as a photographer in favour of music.  I kept my hand in but it's only in the last few years I have embraced my calling with music taking a back seat. This resulted in another icon shot, this time of a Shanghai landmark which ended up being nominated for a Sony award. I then collaborated with a French Painter and she became my muse and I really embraced photography 100% at last but started creating few works of art based on photos accumulating in a special one I did when Bowie died as a tribute (We used to share the same management and were both Brixton boys and he gave me a lot of encouragement) This work will be the centerpiece of my solo exhibition along with another 4D piece of art and pushing the envelope with Alien Art and other new concepts. My limited edition canvases have sold well, and quickly gone up in price this year and just prior to ths a limited edition book of my photos & song lyrics 'Voyeurs Welcome' sold out in 2 weeks and now changes hands for 15 times it's initial selling price. ( A new book is also imminent) so you could say I now feel comfortable calling myself and artist & photographer at last. So happy to now join the art & photography community. Rather attached photos of me here added the two I mentioned along with a more recent art-photo of one to commentate the Suffragette movement 100th Anniversary and an Alien Landscape (the later 3 for sale as limited edition canvas).
