Monet masterpieces goes on display at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, Birmingham

Claude Monet’s Water Lily Pond, 1899, is hung in the gallery at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham, by Curatorial Technician John van Boolen and Assistant Curator Helen Cobby.

A spectacular Monet water lilies painting on loan from a major US art museum goes on display in the galleries at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, at the University of Birmingham, this week.
Taking pride of place in the blue gallery from 23 June until 10 September is Claude Monet’s spectacular Water Lily Pond of 1900, on loan to the Barber from the Art Institute of Chicago.
It features one of the most recognisable motifs of Impressionism – the Japanese bridge over the water lily pond in Monet’s garden at Giverny – and is one of 18 versions of this view painted in the summers of 1899 and 1900.

A return to my roots for a recent band shoot.

I used to photograph a few musicians and bands in Manchester when I lived near there, Northern Uproar, Marion, Human League to name a few. Some of my portraits appeared in the NME, when it was required reading, not the comic version we have today.

More info about the band can be found here
