Outdoor Classroom Day

Fun shoot for Outdoor Classroom Day in May.

When teachers take learning outdoors they report some powerful impacts: Children’s behaviour improves, whole classes are excited to learn, and individuals who feel inhibited by the curriculum often thrive in an outdoor environment.  When adults think back to their own happiest memories of childhood, they frequently recall the joy of playing outdoors. Play is not only central to children’s enjoyment of childhood, but teaches critical life skills such as problem-solvingteamwork and creativity.   

Here East

Driving past Here East in London's Olympic Park I noticed this eye catching development and thought, I must photograph that. Then I got the call...

The Gantry is a 21st century cabinet of curiosities made up of 21 individual creative studios drawing on the rich artistic heritage of Hackney Wick. These studios are set within a gigantic gridded structure on the side of The Broadcast Centre at Here East facing the Queen Elizabeth Park. Built using open-source technology, each studio is machine milled and arrives in a flatpack. On site, they are slotted together like a massive jigsaw before being lifted into place.
