"Fragrance takes a walk on the wild side with a host of new perfumes that border on the untamed.. Decidedly decadent, they include 'down and dirty' rose-based perfumes mixed with deeper, darker notes of incense, amber and musk, as well as oriental scents injected with helpings of tobacco, wood and spices. Think smokey Cuban bars, Gauguin paintings and opium dens - and you've got the gist.." Karena Callen

I was recently invited to curate a new photography exhibition for the Liverpool International Photography Festival My brief, to select images from the AOP Photography Awards and re-present them in response to the festival's theme WOMEN MIGRATION + MEMORY. This turned into a most exciting and enjoyable venture, choosing and showing great photography from award-winning photographers. Here are a few of my favourites.. Photograph by Markku Lahdesmaki Photograph by Markku Lahdesmaki Photograph by Uwe Deuttmann Photograph by Paul Calver Photograph by Julia Fullerton-Batten The exhibition opened at historic St.George's Hall and the preview was attended by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and I had the honor of being her guide. She was extremely impressed with the work on show, in particular George Logan's series 'wildlife on the edge of extinction' photographed for the Born Free Foundation, and Anthony Lycett's emotive portraits of a woman with Alzheimer's, one of the Lord Mayor's charities. She was also very moved by Clare Park's brave and worthy portrait 'my mother towards the end of her life' and together with Emma Smith (the festival's executive director) we three agreed this picture was worthy of 'best in show'. The festival runs until 31st May 2015 All photographs subject to copyright by the respective author.
