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!

I stood in the wings and sensed 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.
