This week at TPA has been a bit unusual as we have finally entered a quiet period for a few weeks. We only had one exhibition open this week in Slough and tomorrow our No Briton is an Island exhibition opens at Henrietta House in London, just off Oxford Street. So if you are in London over the weekend maybe take a stroll through whilst you are doing your shopping and be sure to let us know what you think of the photographs, we always love to receive feedback. It's free to enter so you have no excuse not to pop in!

We are enjoying the downtime here and taking the opportunity to catch up on all the admin that needs doing, ready for when things get super busy again in August and September. For now though, it's time for our weekly Link Love post and we are sure that you will find something here that will pique your interest.

Stacey at her desk

Here at TPA we decided that it might be nice to do a series of interviews with the team. That way you can get to know who is behind The Photographic Angle and what we all do. The new series will be called Close Up and each member of the team will answer a few questions about their job, about photography and about their interests outside of work. To kick the series off you get to find out a little bit more about me.

Spotlight: Vernacular Photography

Posted by Stacey on: 4th Jul 2012

Abandoned Structure Granton by Robert Davies

Our Vernacular photography exhibition is just about to embark on its second tour of the country, this time stopping off in Crawley, Bracknell, Croydon, London, Leeds and Newcastle. This was a particularly interesting theme, mostly due to the broad spectrum of content that the theme encompasses. Find out more about the theme on our exhibitions page.

One of the photographers whose work is being exhibited is Robert Davies.His work focuses on the landscape around us: its architecture, ambience and the temporary and permanent structures that compose it. Davies is interested in capturing how spaces, especially in urban areas reflect a sense of constant change. His body of work is titled Development and records the abandoned and semi-completed regeneration projects that have been heavily afflicted by the global financial crisis. We caught up with Davies to find out more about him and his work.

It's Friday and we are all counting down the minutes to the weekend here at TPA. As you have probably guessed from our shortage of regular blog posts, things have been even more manic than usual in the office. Hannah, our Operations Manager, took some well-deserved time off and headed off to sunny Greece, leaving us here in the office to hold the fort in her absence. It was all hands on deck as we pulled together to keep the exhibitions running smoothly, but I can tell you it was a huge eye opener as we all got to experience first-hand just how much work Hannah does to get it all up and running and ensure that all the photographs make it safely on to the next leg of the tour.

Thankfully though, Hannah is now back so we can all breathe a sigh of relief as normal service can resume. That means that I have also had a few spare moments to trawl the web in search of links to stories that will inspire, intrigue and interest. I hope you find something here that is worth a read! Happy weekend!
