Ben 30th Nov 2016 Ben Moon workbook

When I used to be a climber, as opposed to someone who spends a lot of time capturing climbing images, I'd bump into Ben Moon everywhere. First on the limestone crags of the Ormes, in North Wales. Then on the cliffs of Raven Tor in the Peak District and even on the steep crags of Boux in France, he was everywhere!

LVG Finished 27th Nov 2016 Liz Von Graevenitz

LVG from Tim Glasby on Vimeo. Liz Von Graevenitz, or LVG as I like to affectionately call her, is an artist from Sheffield, in the UK.

foundry2 5th Jan 2016 Canvas by Foundry

  Sheffield Artist Foundry from Tim Glasby on Vimeo. In early November I found myself in a small, dark, room. Its windows blacked out to keep unwanted “predators” at bay. I found it slightly claustrophobic and it stank! The smell wasn’t bad though. More sweet and sickly than rotting flesh (I’d obviously been watching too many Chinese “ripper” films that week) and it was a smell I...
