A number of weeks ago art photographer Josh Murfitt joined us in St Paul’s Church as we filmed and broadcast our latest SHINDIG live session. Bringing together poets Nikki Marrone, Uppahar Subba, Tim Knight and pianist Matt Widgery, the focus of the afternoon was to improvise musical soundtracks to spoken word, streaming the process live via smartphone as it happened.
In a meta ‘capturing us capturing ourselves’ plot twist, Josh hung unseen in the background taking stunning shots like the ones you see below. In his own words Josh is drawn to moments of stillness and calm, and from the general noise he has managed to distil a collection of perfectly observed portraits. You can find the full set on Josh’s blog here, but we’d really recommend checking out his whole portfolio. You can find his work at www.joshmurfitt.co.uk.
The performances themselves were also documented. These films will be released shortly.
