Home is where the art is

My flat is rarely tidy, so I thought I’d take a few photos while it was. This time has already passed though and all that’s left are these three images. I treasure these moments.

Chris Aylen for Sneaker Freaker

Wow. I wasn’t expecting that to go online so quickly after the shoot with Errol.

Woody and the guys at Sneaker Freaker have just published a ‘catch up’ feature on my big (ie. silly) collection of trainers/sneakers after their interview with me for the Vintage feature they did a couple of years back. The models I chose to feature this time around were a little different to the ones I picked last time, so there’s not too much repetition. And I couldn’t be arsed to put them back in the attic either, so they’re now clustered around the flat instead.

Nice to be featured on there again: thanks Errol, Woody, Mafia and the crew.

There’s nothing like a walk in the park on a cold and crunchy afternoon.

I promised myself that I’d never do this again…

Errol’s cool photography project had registered with me before, and when he called up and asked if I’d be interested in being included, I found myself saying ‘yes’ automatically. I’ve done this a few times before for different articles and interviews, but pulling out all my shoes to be photographed is a mammoth task. Three hours of reaching into the attic and crawling around in the wardrobe resulted in a five-hour photo session… and three hours of putting them away again.

On a brighter note, it gave me the perfect opportunity to rotate the current selection of shoes I’m wearing. Winter’s coming, so away with the runners and out with the ACGs, Gore-Tex hikers and other things I’d forgotten about.

The results of the shoot will appear on Errol’s Flicker account soon and then in an exhibition (and perhaps book) next year. Cheers Errol!

Don’t get me wrong, Croydon is disgusting. But the view from my desk at home is pretty amazing. The skies are often dramatic: I can’t resist taking regular photos.

And the police station nearby provides a lot of entertainment in the evenings, but that’s another post altogether…
