I went to photograph Elizabeth Ockford at her studio as she was creating a new range of wallpaper for Zoffany.
She uses traditional print making techniques that have hardly changed for almost 500 years, creating stunning designs.
It was for &London, a beautifully designed new publication for Strutt & Parker.
I finally got to see the Hofesh Shechter Dance company perform Political Mother, it was an incredible performance combining contemporary dance, with the atmosphere of a Rock performance with the oppressive power of a George Orwell Novel.
If you get the chance to book tickets I strongly urge you to go, it was certainly an experience and the first dance performance I’ve been to that handed out ear plugs before hand!
I had the chance to photograph Hofesh Shechter in 2010 just before the debut of Political Mother for the Brighton festival, and to have the chance to photograph the end of a rehearsal.
