George Greaves at home

George Greaves, A man of his word

If you haven’t seen George’s photos at the Fishermen’s Museum, I strongly recommend you see this very important photographic record of the Hastings fishing fleet. I am fortunate enough to possess an original George Greaves photo, the one he posted to me in 1991. It is pinned to a shelf in my office where I see it every day, a wonderful memory of when I met the man who has chronicled Hastings’ fishing fleet for over 35 years.

Underexposed

A string of pearls of events and exhibitions along the Hastings/St. Leonards seafront last Friday night showed PhotoHastings in all its creative energy and exuberance. Like an iridescent silver halide print, the seafront positively glowed. From Alexander Brattel’s lively In Conversation at Stade Hall, to the opening of Octet at St Mary in Castle and finally to Norman Road, starting with Bob Mazzer’s truly wonderful Underground and culminating at The Garage for the opening of Underexposed, it was a night when these two towns were anything but underexposed. John Cole followed the creative trail and ended up at the Garage of the Horse and Groom pub to have a look at Underexposed and talk with the artists. Underexposed runs until 30th October.

PhotoHastings stakes new claim to town fame

The Hastings and St Leonards area has a long-established tradition of fine art, painting and music. But until recently, Hastings’ photographic talents have been partially overshadowed by the bright lights of Brighton. Though not for much longer, as PhotoHastings 2014 is about to be launched. HOT reporter John Cole spoke with PhotoHastings coordinator Cathryn Kemp about the exciting developments for photography in the Hastings creative area.
