ABOUT THE BOOK
Set within Grange Park a council estate in Blackpool which the locals call strange . This book is derived from a desire to document areas of personal significant importance to myself with an intention to memorialise .
By embedding myself in the lives of the people who live on Grange Park and documenting their story through audio and visual photographic testimony I entered a world which spoke of the unknown , murder , lingering ghosts , deja vu , omens , portents and pain .
A hidden world not everyone is exposed to .
An aura of strange .
Evidence of premonistic connections through time .

On all your pages and social networking sites you should specificly cross link your most popular sites in the heading or details to provide your best sites with slightly more exposure but also giving your lesser known pages some equal attention and likely hit rate . Therefore think about the likely hood of the link being seen and where it is posted according to a viewer who will look at your site or page and also what the chances are from this visbility to if or how they will see it when clicking or stumbling across your page . You want the most visibility and likleyhood of a response . So if and when some one comes to your page they will most likely notice the link and and chain look through all your sites thus giving them the most exposure and hits .
Although I would not recommend facebook and would prefer google plus and twitter , I suppose I use because I feel I have to . It may help in sharing my work and getting minor publicity . So … Use facebook and post images from your own pages with specific targeted keywording and also more rare but precise and subject informed to increase chances of being noticed and noticed by the right people as well as with links to your own websites and published work included in the image , then post them to different groups with lots of members and specific subject matter .
Use google plus and post images from your own page with specific targeted keywording and with links to your own websites and published work included in the image , then post them to different google plus communities with lots of members and specific similar subject matter to gain the most followers and shares thus exposure .
I Use 500 px for validation and motivation as it is more frequently used by real practicing members of the photographic community . Getting a response on here should mean more than a facebook page as it is uninfluenced by other people and societal constructs or personal barriers so it is a more pure form of recognition in your passion of photography . 500 px has caused people to search for me online regarding work and job opportunitys . I also use it as a visual eye opener to search for works I myself would aspire to . Again Use 500 px with specific targeted keywording and with links to your own websites on your front page and published work included in the show image space .
Twitter is good again for getting promoted or valuable publicity online as it has a direct link to the most inspiring and biggest names in your field . It would only take one time at being sought out , seen or recognised by someone with clout to rocket your practice into unknown levels . I see twitter as one of the most valuable ways to get noticed by the right people . Facebook is the last choice , if good at all as it comes with the baggage of social barriers and negative constructs of society at your home level , people are not capable of there own susceptiveness on facebook they are like sheep to the alpha . It will be no good until you make it for real if any at all even then . It is all a physchological tool of no use to your career aims at a basic level .

For just one coin …
He will take your hand
and row across the black abyss.
Hell sweep you to his threshold,
into purgatory where you can’t possibly exist .

Addicted to telling stories .
Even when I’m asleep my brain tells me stories .
Today i got speaking to a drug addict who looked desperate . I find it a shame that people reach these unfortunate states in there lifes due to aspects such as drug abuse in our society that seem so easy to … or should in theory be more simple to solve in our contemporary society . But for which reasons most of us could not even fathom this way of life seems to continue if not even thrive in modern culture . It seems as if money per greed and hyman selfishness allow it to continue for factors deemed more important such as social strata , individual pleasure or if just gets too much for some .
Its similair to a crutch for our deepest nightmares .
This shot was taken whilst on another recce acquiring more material for my new project .
Ive been up since the early hours but its all been worth it as I have had one of those great days where i have accumulated some great material that I’m very satisfied with . Time now for a cup of kigomo expresso whilst I make a start on a book review with my eyes half shut .
I am also very pleased to have been noticed by American Suburb X . Many Thanks ASX .
I will add more details to this post tomorrow .
