Tom Hunter's A Midsummer Night's Dream
I have the great pleasure to assist Tom Hunter in Royal Shakespeare Company's commission A Midsummer Night's Dream
A Midsummer Night's Dream is a new photographic exhibition by acclaimed artist Tom Hunter, inspired by Shakespeare's play and the paintings of Romantic artist Henry Fuseli.
Hunter's contemporary reworking of the play is set in Hackney, East London, where the artist lives and works, and features local people and communities including samba dancers, pearly kings and queens, a thrash metal band and a pole dancer.
Taking key moments from the play, Hunter has distilled Shakespeare's work into a series of images which weave together contemporary city life with that of the celebrated tale of love and illusion.
Tom Hunter has exhibited both nationally and internationally, and was the first artist to have a photography show at the National Gallery in London.

It was great to assist Tom and work with supercute model princess Toshi!.
'Soon after accepting our brief to produce an artwork commemorating the royal wedding, Hunter was studying coverage of the tsunami and saw the rare appearance of the emperor o Japan. He began reading about the Japanese royal family and in particular Princess Toshi, the emperor's granddaughter, who will be prevented from succeding to the Chrysanthemum Throne because she is female.Coincidentally, Hunter's friend Kev is married to a Japanese girl also called Toshi, so he decided to shoot her in a cafe posing as the princess, contemplating her situation and the ephemeral nature of royal weddings' Ian Tucker
Really excited with our new exhibtion in Manchester

Tom Hunter's Serpentine Gallery commission
Amazing opportunity to work along with Tom Hunter in this Serpentine Gallery commission. The team was fantastic!. First time I saw filming with a 5D, just great!
The main focus of WOMEN LOOKING AT WOMEN: The female gaze is the self-representation of women in Photography. The 20th century led to new paths in women's representation that challenged the notion of "the gaze" as being purely one sided: men looking at women. The book discusses in context, some of the historical and socio-cultural changes in the perception of the feminine and the "female" artist. It examines how the articulation of these new tendencies in representation, together with an increasing presence of female artists in the Art World, enabled reconsideration and renegotiation of the terms in which women are looked upon. A series of photographic works by key female artists are discussed and juxtaposed. The historical burden of the "male gaze" is confronted by a new myriad of "gazes".
