Double Fantasy Live - Yoko Ono's Meltdown

When Bishi asked me to document her monumental evening performing on the last night of Yoko Ono's Meltdown Festival, I was more than happy to go along for the ride!

It was quite something to stand in the wings and sense the anticipation of each performer as they went on stage, silently cheering them on. I hope to have captured some of the spirit of the evening in these photos.

Lucha Britannia

Welcome to the Retrofutureverse. With the support of Jonathan Ross and a highly skilled TV crew steered by Bafta award- winning director Simon Dinsell, Lucha Britannia is well on the way to prime time TV exposure.

The Lucha family, headed up by Garry Vanderhorne, are fearless and superbly talented; each show is a vivid and impassioned spectacle. I wish them every success.

Long live Lucha Britannia!

Here are my photos from Friday 31 May. (click on image to enlarge)
