When I am my most homesick for shooting on film I find myself editing all my images in black and white. Here are a few taken from a recent trip to see a friend out of London and a portrait of artist Diane Goldie.
I’ve decided to make a mini-zine that will be published two or three times a year. It’s called ‘The Nifty’ and I’m looking for submissions.
The theme for this edition is ‘Something Daring’.
Please send prose poetry/flash fiction no longer than 100 words to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline May 31st (if you haven't heard from me by June 30th your work has not been selected for publication) and thank you in advance for your submissions.
Here is a list of all the people who so generously took part in ‘The Two of Us’ Festival Fundraiser and their social media contacts and websites. I have also included the details of Reel Rebels Radio where the event was held, as well as renting out rehearsal rooms at competitive prices the entire residence is available to hire for events - email@example.com http://reelrebelsradio.com t:@ReelRebelsRadio
We also had Dee doing the security – so for those of you who put on gigs etc. she’s the person to get in touch with at Security4u - firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally the event would not have come together had it not been for my great team Alba, Chikodi, Laurence, Nathalie Teitler and my co-host Rishi. Rishi and Alba are on the list of writers. Chikodi is busy working on her novel and not on social media presently.
You can find Laurence here i: @moniasseartistmuse and https://www.moniasse.com

What with the festival fundraiser for my radio show ‘The Two of Us’ and trying to balance such an undertaking with my ongoing health issues I have hardly picked up the camera. I have been feeling a bit disconnected with my photographic practice, that was until I picked up my Fuji x100s. I have a number of cameras, film and digital, but my Fuji is my go to when I need something user friendly that allows for good quality images in lower light conditions. The more I develop as a photographer the more interested I am in sequence and narrative. My friend Celine Marchbank is an inspiration as always, if you don’t know her work she is well worth checking out.
For the past few years I have stop sending Christmas cards and keep present giving to a minimum for my mum, brother and niece. Instead I give the money I would have spent on gifts to a local charity. This year I put a shout out on both Twitter and Instagram and asked people to suggest their favourite charities. Here’s the lis so far in case you feel inclined to share and/or make a small donation yourself.
Love always, Naomi x
Yesterday afternoon I had a really inspiring time at the ‘Looking for Details’ workshop led by photographer Celine Marchbank at Free Space Project in Kentish Town. I will be following Daniel Regan’s lead with his Visual Scrapbook and using this blog to post occasional photos and work in progress. Here’s my effort from yesterday. Enjoy !
