Naufragio con UNO Spettatore – ancora!


I took this shot through a gap in the ancient door frame of the deconsecrated Chiesa di San Marcellino in Parma, Italy last week. Somehow Claudio Parmiggiani’s incredible, but now vestigial, installation, being closed to the public gaze, lends a new sense . It stands intact, secret and forlorn, a derelict even more potent for its lone solemnity. I hope someone will salvage this before its too late.

Delighted with our recent film on Richard Long, the first drone footage ever taken of his work which puts it into a whole new perspective. Houghton is magnificent and special thanks go to all concerned, but especially to Mr. Long for the unprecedented access and to Lorcan for the great vocal.


Not in fact related (directly) to todays election outcomes…
