Olympus Pen

I recently purchased an Olympus Pen half frame 35mm camera. These are some initial photos I took with it over the last few days. The image quality is poor but it has given some good ideas of how to use to the dual images to form a series or story lines. 

The sculpture photos were taken at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park exhibition of Juame Plensa.

Art Walk

In anticipation of the Leeds International Film Festival I visited the the disused (now used a Zimbabwean church) Lyric Cinema in Armley.  Sadly not to see Robocop or Terminator 2 but to see a site specific film by artist Lucy Skaer commissioned by Pavilion. I was intrigued to see how an artist would tackle a project making a site specific film in an old cinema like this. I was thrilled to find out that this film would be shown on the original 1940s projectors which have been more or less untouched since the cinema closed down in 1988.
