Robert Harrison Keith Parkins and Angela Vowles are a ‘three piece’ band described as ‘A crashing collision becoming sound’. They invited me to one of their practice sessions in Preston, the sound was a visceral experience and very moving, a combination of vocals guitar, drums and a well used saxophone.
The images had to reflect the surreal ‘one off’ style the band use to create their music.
This is a selection from the shoot, yes there are sharp ones as well but these ones really give the narrative of the way the band work. Every show is unique and created on site, completely ad lib.
I dealt with the Ulverston branch of Marshall Mason Kitchens. This installation based in Cartmel is hand-painted and has a major feature of solid walnut interiors. The light fitting above the island is also a bespoke item. The owner kindly left us alone to photograph, the blend of natural and tungsten light give different colourations through the room.
This is (was) the meeting place for all the creatives around Ardwick Green. If you needed a photographer or stylist then lunchtime this place was full of them. The big studios went one by one and the clientele went with them.
The River Pub, just down the road from the bustle of Ardwick. A sorry sight situated on Palmerston street with the River Medlock at its back. It began its licensing in 1860.
