Crossness Pumping Station

Crossness Pumping Station

Last weekend Mark and I visited Crossness Pumping Station in Abbey Wood, which is only open to the public a few times per year, and was on this occasion open for the annual Open House event.  After a lengthy queue to enter the building, we were then faced with another queue once inside to enter […]


To Willie With Compliments

To Willie With Compliments

This image features another of my Mum’s vintage postcard gems, as soon as I saw it I knew I had to make something further from it.  The old fashioned captions on the card –  ‘A present for the Kaiser’ on the front, and on the reverse ‘our grand artillerymen like to address a shell before […]


The Cubbyholes of my Mind

The Cubbyholes of my Mind

  Trying something a little different here, in that I have taken a photo from the recent explore at the abandoned toolmakers in Sheffield and combined it with an older photograph of myself from the bandaged head series (used to create The Trick is to Keep Breathing).  I was aiming for something vaguely disturbing and […]


The Trick is to Keep Breathing

The Trick is to Keep Breathing

I made this image a while ago in an attempt to describe visually what depression feels like.  It was done from ‘memory’, some stages away from the depths of true despair (for if I were there, I would not have been able to work at all), the title indicative that if I can only summon up sufficient energy and […]


Viveca’s Garden

Viveca's Garden

  Spent some time relaxing in my garden today, after taking all these photographs for a multiplicity image (for technique, please see my tutorial post), which was slightly tricky in that (a) the wind was quite strong therefore rustling and moving all the foliage, and (b) the tripod was crammed into the corner by my shed which […]


More East London Street Art

More East London Street Art

Another selection from my recent visit to Shoreditch in East London, of some of the excellent street art that is so prolific in this area. This one is by Farkfk, and through my post-processing using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 I have selectively coloured the image in an attempt to make it my own, i.e. […]


Leviathan

Leviathan

Mark and I went to investigate Cliffe Fort in Kent on Saturday, and whilst I was too much of a wimp to climb over the fence to get in (requiring walk over slippery wooden ‘gangplank’ and then a lumber over the metal pronged fence, with enough water on either side to get one thoroughly wet […]


Lost Asylum Sonnets

Lost Asylum Sonnets

“a roller skate dreaming of escape … a piano’s broken grin … a wheelchair refusing its fate …   Lost Asylum Sonnets is a journey of documentary imagination into the abandoned world of insane asylums, and the lives once lived within them. Ten photographs by Viveca Koh and ten sonnets by Catherine Lupton light on […]


The Manor: A Photographic Record

The Manor: A Photographic Record

An abandoned manor house, hidden away from the public gaze, still holds many secrets of the previous occupants. People who left so much behind, when they said goodbye to the house for the final time. Here is a photographic journey into the heart of what was once someone’s home, an intimate portrait of another era […]


New York Blog

New York Blog

In September 2009, I spent ten days alone in New York City, staying in a small self-catering apartment on the Upper East Side. While I was there, I kept an online blog, to amuse myself in the evenings, and to entertain my friends and family back home. This is the book of the blog, with […]
