The Phoneographer Explores: Selfies

In the run up to Christmas a simple project that I began in 2010 managed to catch the attention of the media, from New York to New Zealand. It was a simple experiment that I started in Gothenburg, Sweden as I attempted to travel by train from the Arctic to the Equator (Narvik, Norway to Singapore).  The objective was to talk a photo of myself each day at 3pm with the background […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Majorca

Majorca, or Mallorca is the largest island of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea.   The Balearic Islands have been an autonomous region of Spain since 1983, with the capital of the island, Palma, being the capital of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands.   All phoneographs captured on a Nokia Lumia 1020, using my 1MinutePhoto technique.                                 Got an event coming up?  Want to create a buzz on social media? […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has a documented history that spans over 3,000 years, but there are facts to suggest that Sri Lanka had pre-historic human settlements dating back to at least 125,000 years.  Its geographic location and deep harbours made it of great strategic importance from the time of the ancient Silk Road through to World War II.  Sri Lanka is a diverse country, home to many religions, ethnicities and languages. An undiscovered island, you […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Barcelona

Set on a plain rising gently from the sea to a range of wooded hills, Barcelona is Spain‘s most cosmopolitan city and one of the Mediterranean’s busiest ports. Restaurants, bars and clubs are always packed, as is the seaside in summer. The city’s avant-garde chefs whip up a storm that has even the French reaching for superlatives. You might get the impression it’s dedicated exclusively to hedonism, but it’s a hard-working, dynamic place […]

The Phoneographer Explores: U Magazine ‎HighStreetStyleAwards‬

Friday 10 October 2014 – the date that I attended my first ever fashion award show. My feeling this morning is that I hope that it won’t be my last. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I can’t wait for the next one. I will openly admit that when I received the invites to attend the U Magazine event at Lillie’s Bordello I was not overly enthusiastic. However, […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Beach Rugby

Beach rugby is a sport that can be based on either of the rugby codes, union or league as, unlike beach football or beach volleyball, there  is no centralised regulation of the sport. Leagues are common across Australia, South Africa and Europe, but I found it quite bizarre that the sport was particularly popular in the Spanish island of Majorca – not exactly a traditional Rugby stronghold. Casual games are played across the world […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Astra Handball

A sport that has seen its popularity rise in Ireland, is Handball (also known as team handball, Olympic handball, European team handball, European handball, or Borden ball).  It is very different from Gaelic Handball, which is the most widely played version of the sport in Ireland, as for starters it is a team sport.  In this fast paced game, two teams of seven players each (six outfield players and a goalkeeper) pass a ball amongst themselves with the objective […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Yas Viceroy, Abu Dhabi

A true architectural triumph, this iconic five star hotel is the only hotel in the world to straddle an F1 race track being breathtakingly built half on land and half over water. The hotel’s main feature is its unique ‘grid shell’ – a 219 metre expanse of sweeping curvilinear glass and steel covering that drapes over the two hotel towers, linked by a bridge that crosses the F1 circuit.      The ‘grid shell’ […]
