A Road Petrol Stations at Night – Aspex Guildhall, Portsmouth 2014

As a result of the degree show series at the University of Portsmouth in 2012, Andrew was the recipient of the Aspex Graduate Award 2012.  The award is given to students from the summer show at the University by Aspex, a local art organisation and gallery.  The prize for the award includes an exhibition sometime in the future and this was what led to this show.

Through this award Andrew was commissioned to expand his photographic series, ‘A Road Petrol Stations at Night’ from the initial 3 images to 10 images which were then exhibited in the Aspex Guildhall gallery in the centre of the city.  During the three months of exhibition between August and October 2014 the work was seen by thousands of people and gained international attention from many organisations including the Royal Institute of British Architects.  The article from RIBA can be found here

24 Redbridge Grove

Art Photobook number four is a bit more personal again and revolves around the miniseries ‘24 Redbridge Grove’. This series of images is part of an ongoing, but not yet published, photo essay, ‘Life Death and Photography’.

The overall goal is to study the human temporality and the role photography has to play in our memories and our experience.

‘24 Redbridge Grove’ contains images from my paternal grandparents family home over 10 years after Nan had passed away and shortly before Grandad moved from here to residential living. The images look at the signs of a life that was as well as a home greatly in need of some TLC and new life.

Again with its personal nature I wanted my father to see this work for himself before it being published.

10 Paignton Avenue

Art Photobook number three is a bit more personal and revolves around the miniseries ‘10 Paignton Avenue’. This series of images is part of an ongoing, but not yet published, photo essay, ‘Life Death and Photography’.

The overall goal is to study the human temporality and the role photography has to play in our memories and our experience.

‘10 Paignton Avenue’ contains images from my maternal grandparents family home shortly after their deaths and before being sold. The images look at the signs of a life that was as well as a home greatly in need of some TLC and new life.

Given the personal nature of this weeks book I wanted to give a copy to my mother and do it before the publishing of social media posts. Although a series of images she had seen before, seeing them again in this formation was definitely different for her
