A Road Called Home

Newspaper - Dinner A Day

I have been working on this for some time now, only now have I finally got around to finishing it. The colours are a little washed out, especially in comparison to the website versions, but overall I think I am happy with the paper.

I ordered this at about 1pm on Tuesday (17th Jan) and it arrived 10am on Thursday (19th Jan), that is not a bad turnaround in my opinion.

I have also been working on a Kindle version, just as a test to see how easy it is to create and how the format adapts a photo publication - especially when shown on a black and white display.

Bryan Heseltine

Whilst in Oxford the other week, I took the opportunity to visit the People Apart: Cape Town Survey 1952 exhibition in the Long Gallery at the Pitt Rivers Museum. There were some great photos on display, clearly Heseltine was a talented photographer.

I did, however, have two issues regarding the exhibition. Firstly, there was a lack of signs pointing towards, or even identifying the work as being the Long Gallery. Secondly, but in a similar vein, it was in a small corridor next to the toilets. Whilst I was there, the only people who glanced at the work were those rushing past it with other agendas. I guess that must be what Oxford University think of photography...

Still, it was good to see some alternative work by a lesser known individual.
