Towards the end of February, Bore Place (set in wonderful grounds in deep, dark Kent) hosted the latest incarnation of the highly successful Take Five artist professional development initiative. Take Five Europe (Edition 1) awarded 8 recipients from across Europe:
Benjamin Flament & Céline Bonacina from France.
Bram Stadhouders & Oene van Geel from the Netherlands.
Tom Arthurs & Fraser Fifield from the UK.
Gard Nilssen & Ole Morten Vågan from Norway.
Maciej Obara & Maciej Garbowski from Poland.
As ever, it was a pleasure to work with all these artists and the creative buzz was awesome; be it capturing these formal portraits or documenting their daily practical sessions with the mighty John Surman. Fantastic.
