Photo by @simoncroberts | The Dongdaemun Design Park (DDP) in Seoul, South Korea, was created by the late Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid. This neo-futuristic cultural complex was commissioned to replace the Dongdaemun Stadium, built during Japanese rule in the 1920s, and was created in Hadid’s signature curvaceous forms. Dongdaemun is a busy and historic neighbourhood in central Seoul’s Jongno-gu district, which is known for its 24-hour shopping. The DPP complex includes a much-needed green oasis within the densely built South Korean capital. During the site’s excavation, major archaeological remains from the Joseon dynasty were uncovered, including original sections of the Seoul City Wall, which have been incorporated into the park.

Hangang, also known as the Han River, is the main body of water that runs through the middle of the capital city of South Korea. As in many cities, urban planners in Seoul have realized the significance of parks and green spaces to help combat issues of air pollution, improve public health, and to meet demands for increased leisure time.

Photo by @simoncroberts | The ""green"" exterior of a store on Myeongdong street in Seoul, South Korea, decorated with more than 50,000 pots of plants. Myeongdong is Seoul's main shopping district, popular with young people and tourists. After the Korean War, the country's economy expanded rapidly, and so did the population of Seoul. Many department stores, shops, restaurants, and shopping centers set up businesses in the Myeongdong area to keep up with this increasing demand. It is now estimated that the floating population of the district is up to two million people a day, and in terms of floorspace rents, Myeongdong is one of the most expensive shopping areas in the world.

Foto de @ simoncroberts | A fraturação do gás de xisto apenas começou pela primeira vez no Reino Unido desde que foi ligada a terremotos em 2011. A prática de recuperar gás e petróleo da rocha de xisto provou ser controversa com muitos manifestantes na Grã-Bretanha tentando deter a exploração de novos locais. Últimos anos. A aldeia de Balcombe, em Sussex, viu vários confrontos entre a polícia e manifestantes anti-frustração com os habitantes locais e membros do movimento nacional Frack Off, que se opõe aos planos de exploração de gás de petróleo. Aqui, os manifestantes no campo de ação "No Dash for Gas" podem ser vistos tentando impedir a entrega de um aparelho de transporte de veículos à unidade de Balcombe em 2013.

Photo by @simoncroberts | Fracking for shale gas has just begun for the first time in the UK since it was linked with earthquakes in 2011. The practice of recovering gas and oil from shale rock has proved controversial with many protestors in Britain trying to halt exploration of new sites over the past few years. The village of Balcombe in Sussex has seen several confrontations between police and anti-fracking protesters with both local inhabitants and members of the Frack Off national movement opposing petroleum gas exploration plans. Here protestors in the ‘No Dash for Gas’ Action Camp' can be seen trying to prevent a vehicle delivering apparatus to the Balcombe site back in 2013.

Over Hills and Seas exhibition at Regency Town House as part of Brighton Photo Fringe. (Apologies for poor, blurry, askew, reflective snapshots from yours truly). Between 2007 and 2016, Tim Andrews got 425 photographers to take his portrait, and curated a selection on the edge of “landscape” and portraiture here.
Though these are not about illness or disease, the project started as a result of Andrews being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and there is an inherent poignancy to the series.
I was struck by:
📷
Simon Roberts’s response, in which, in effect, by inviting the sitter to take self-portraits, he makes us realise that the whole series, in the act of commissioning, is a self-portrait. I love the sense of movement and dynamism, too. - Roberts’ shot shown with Andrews’ own. It looks like both had fun.
📷
Tina Rowe’s response makes you think of the materiality of photography, the frailty of the image, like skin on the cusp of peeling off from the wood support. An interesting composite portrait making you think of multiplicity and uniqueness, too. Note the poignant discomfort in the pose at the top left corner. 📷
Thea Lovering’s shot of his back looks like a landscape of its own. Rugged, weathered, bearing the accidents, patterns and signs of history - here, the sitter’s life. 💥📷

TINTERN GARAGE VALETING CAR: (flowers 4)
A few days ago I listened to Simon Roberts talk at the Martin Parr Foundation. It was a superb hour and a half. I pondered that when I was becoming a photographer, how constructive it would have been for me to have heard it.
Simon informed us he went to university reading Human Geography. His early photography was as a local newspaper photographer, graduating later for magazines. We learned that he did not feel fulfilled, so developed a more considered approach - basically a development of his knowledge of Human Geography. We absorbed his tenaciousness - first self assignment a year in Russia, most later projects done over periods of years, all meticulously researched. In an hour and a half any student could have gained all the pointers for becoming a major photographer. No myths just facts from some one who has actually done it.
On reflection I mused that Martin Parr, Susan Meiselas, Paul Trevor, Marketa Luskacova, Chris Killip, Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen, Bieker Deporteer, Michael Christopher Brown, Niall McDiarmid,, among others, had all passed on the same ‘doer’ information at the MPF. Sian Davey, Sir Don McCullin, will be doing the same soon.
I could conceive a photographic course in the future consisting of simply going to all these and future lectures. Over two years - enough initiation for anyone - you would hear the reality of at least 40 practitioners. Including travel/food/books it might cost £3500 per person.
I would be interested in the result.

Photo by @simoncroberts | Boys playing in the shadow of Celtic Football Club, Springfield Road, Glasgow from the series #merriealbion. Located in Glasgow's east end Celtic Park is sometimes referred to by commentators as Parkhead (or by fans as Paradise), after the district of the city the stadium is located. The stadium has been situated on its current site since 1892. Parkhead flourished with the discovery of coal in 1837 and grew into an important industrial centre for the city. Since the 1970s the area has had to battle against the decline of the coal and steel industry relying instead on retail jobs and the popularity of football. Home games at Celtic FC often host up to 55,000 fans.
