the booth museum

The Booth Museum in Brighton (South Coast of England) is a really interesting Natural History museum- it holds over half a million species of birds, bugs and animals. There's an enormous taxidermy section, hundreds of butterflies and (my favorite part...) a HUGE amount of animal skeletons, ranging from birds to deer to a killer whale.
It's a great place, give it a visit if you're anywhere near there...

Friday, 7 March 2008


Today we recived our A Level photography exam paper.
There were some interesting titles- Connected Images, Abstraction in the Landscape...but the one that struck me was "Literature".

I've got a favor to ask everyone- do you know of any photographers who have produced a series of photographs based around a poem, a song, a book?
I would be really really pleased if anyone could get back to doesn't matter if they're professional photographers, or amateur. I would love to see ANYTHING.

Also, if you know of anyone who might know of shoots...could you ask them?

Pretty please!

Here are two I thought of immediately:
