Each work of art comes with a signed certificate of true authenticity and an authentic traditional haiku poem by the author Stephen Shaw. These professional prints should only be handled with gloves and kept in a storage container or hung and mounted in a high quality wall frame mount. This prevents deterioration from oils, dirt and atmosphere which will maximise on their life, which is currently 100 years plus with correct care and attention. Each print is hand prepared by myself on authentic hahnemuhle Photorag paper with decalled edges, and signed with an authentic, antique Japanese needle pen.

Long Distance Beard Art?

My long distance package from a friend Dave Carter Baker in Birmingham arrived today containing my shipment of Fused magazines.


After cutting open with my big scissors and then vigoursly ripping back the flaps I was quite surprised to find an  extra gift .

Should I frame it and lock it away in my downstairs safe.

The art of grooming, beardart from bakersy by the grim weeder.


What exactly is it ?

Peculiar and strange.

A long distance personal dna infused self portrait or a religious icon of the beards contemporary cultural status? I have yet to figure this out.

Toledano Hope and fear

Denotation on an image by phillip toledano .

I decided to use some of phillip toledanos work which has only been brought to my attention today , but i find him very thought provoking and think he has some amazing images .

Denotation .

In this image we see a person stood upright , i think male , shrouded in what looks like a mac donalds burkha and ridaa , against a greyish toned background . He is wearing this white dress shaped like a burkha and ridaa with the macdonalds yellow logo in a repeated pattern all over its surface . All you can see is his eyes peering out .

Connotation .

I think the interpretive meaning for this image could be both a hope and a fear and mean different things to different people , depending on how you take the subject …or  if you like macdonalds lol. I could think of some people who would hope and desire the mc donalds deity and gladly eat more than their fair share of him daily , without batting an eyelid . As also i could think of viewers who both like and dislike islam .

Maybe its a fear for society gaining a new worthless religion ( A false religion ? The subliminal mistrusting of islam  made farcical ? ) and all that it would bring to future generations , obesity ( sharia ) etc . Maybe it could mean islam is spreading fast and addictively like people who are introduced to their first cheeseburger ?

Maybe society has subconsciously started to worship something they dont realise .  The fact that lots of people rely on this terrible diet to feed themselves daily and follow it religously or could do even more so in the future could be a comparitive suggestion to islam ?

Maybe a future generation could actually believe ronald was a god, after they dig up a thousand year old mc donald sign on mars when the human race has died out long after terraforming its surface lol  They may actually wear these and fight for hundreds of years killing billions of people in the name of a big mac , which probably isnt much different to the reality we have on our hands right now ^^ ( We can make lots of different interpretations  ) .  haha i am proud to be part of the human race .

First day of Photography Degree course .

Well everything went well today and i enjoyed it . Its been a long time since i sat in classroom but im sure ill get used to it ( i fond it slightly harder to concentrate because i cant seem to relax as easily as i did when i was younger lol  . Dave  gregory and all the teachers seem like great people and all the other pupils are too So hopefully it should only get better . Today we learnt about different types of files eg jpeg , raw and tiff . I had heard of all of them apart from the tiff which was unfamiliar . This was one of the first things i learnt when i started getting into photography myself so it was familiar ground . Ii also learnt quite a few new things about each type of file and their pros and cons , which was good .
