The Americans – A visual documentary by Alec Dudson

Posted in Art, Inspiration, Photography by Brett Kellett

Photo journalist Alec Dudson has been trekking over America documenting his trip on his trusty SLR.

His insistence on using ‘old fashioned’ film rather than any of that modern digital malarky, makes the taking of the photo all the more important. Waiting for the perfect moment, rather than snapping hundreds which have to be whittled down on a computer later, results in photos with soul rather than digital files edited in Photoshop. His recent interview on the Dazed Digital blog gives a great insight into the thought process behind choosing this moment.

You can find more of his work on his website and alongside others on Kollektivnye.

It Came From The North

Posted in Design, Printmaking by Design Robot

So, I’ve finally found a little time to post some more! To be perfectly honest, I’ve never been great at ‘Time Management’ and a quick flick through my ‘Record Of Achievement’ from big school shows that every year, without fail, I quite sincerely wrote “Next year I will aim to manage my time better and to apply myself more”. Well, the thought was there anyway! The aim was spot on, but I somehow never hit the target. Many years later and I’m still to achieve that GTD ‘mind like water’ state of organisational bliss. One day though, I promise…

Anyway, enough babbling. Here we have the portfolio of Brett Kellett, a thoroughly decent bloke that I met at Hot Bed Press, the excellent open-access printmakers’ workshop in Salford, Manchester. Now I won’t lie. Brett is a good lad, but the fact that like me, he’s also from Yorkshire, drinks Yorkshire Tea and likes a decent pint of real ale means that my opinions may be biased. You should probably read below and then pop over to his website to make your own minds up.
