I’ve just received an unconditional offer of a place on the University of Brighton’s highly regarded MA Photography degree course. I'm well chuffed as they have about 60–80 applicants but only a dozen or so places, and my first degree is in chemistry, not art! One of my tutor’s will be Magnum photographer Mark Power.

As part of the Brighton Festival Fringe 2011 I am in a group exhibition at AM Gallery Brighton, 4–17 May.
''This contemporary photography exhibition of international artists consists of four different shows: narrative (N), still life (S), abstract (A) and portrait (P). Aiming to enhance the interaction between the public and photographic medium, this exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see the creative works of talented artists from all over the world.''

My memento mori series Tempus Fugit will be exhibited at Add the Colour Cafe/Gallery on North Road, just down the road from Brighton rail station: 10 January–14 February 2011. I am also presenting a talk on my work on Monday 14 February at 7 pm.

Need a good read? One of my photos is in every good bookshop! Myriad Editions has used one of the photos for Quilt, a novel by Nicholas Royle.
My work will be exhibited throughout May as part of the Brighton Festival Artists Open Houses 2010, as part of a group show with photographer Heather Shuker.
Update: the show was shortlisted for Latest magazine’s Best Open House Award 2010 – 1 of only 13 exhibitions selected out of a total of over 250.
