Spillers’ Downfall: New Prints

It’s been a busy first week of 2013 in the studio, not least putting a lot of love and attention into the release of my new Spillers’ Downfall Print Collection.

Today, now satisfied with the eight specially selected prints, I have enjoyed signing and embossing the first set.

Embossing and signing the Spillers’ Downfall Collectors’ Portfolio (No.1-4)…

I have taken a slightly different tack with these images, making them smaller than the prints in my other Collections.

The Spillers’ Downfall prints aren’t numbered but they are made, signed and embossed by me.

You will see by clicking here that the prints are available individually or in sets of four — taking the form of my Collectors’ Portfolios.

— The 9th Print

To mark the launch of this Collection, there is in fact a ninth print!

This can be found in the new Collectors’ Edition of Spillers’ Downfall.

I hope you enjoy these new additions to my work.  Please feel free to leave comments or contact me to share your thoughts…

…have a great weekend!

Signing, Numbering and Embossing Real Books!

As well as the creation of this site, one of the great things to come out of 2012 for me is the self-publication of my first book.

The whole process has proved to be wonderful soul-food.

So much of our photographic experience is web-based these days, the pleasure of handling prints and books can easily be forgotten.

This morning I’m relishing signing, numbering and embossing the actual books that people have kindly ordered from me.

Then, I will physically send them through the postal system to arrive as a little parcel of joy at the other end…

Spillers’ Downfall: The Demolition of Spillers Mill

I’m pleased to announce the release of my first photography book, Spillers’ Downfall — a self-published series of images documenting the demolition of Spillers Mill here in Newcastle upon Tyne.

“…a set of images that are both strangely beautiful and undeniably awesome.” — Rob Meddes, The Crack

Spillers' Downfall: The Demolition of Spillers Mill, Newcastle upon Tyne by Jack Lowe

I affectionately named this iconic building The White Cliffs of Byker after cycling past it for some eight years.

I’ve photographed it on so many occasions, building up a library of nearly five hundred images in the process.  Sadly, the last six months of 2011 became a record of its demolition.

Spillers’ Downfall forms a special selection of those photographs.
