It’s always fascinating to cover conferences for the British Ecological Society and often easy to forget to take pictures while listening to the presentations. Here are a selection of pictures from their annual conference in Birmingham and a joint conference with the Society for Tropical Ecology in the magnificent McEwan Hall, Edinburgh.
DB recently opened their new facility in Wolverhampton close to the heartland of the West Midlands motor industry. I covered the launch, giant hangars dwarfing giant trains delivering giant rolls of steel.
I visited the West Midlands twice last year to cover stories related to Britain’s motor industry. The new facility pictured below to deliver and house steel by Deutsche Bahn Cargo and before that on a commission for German business magazine WirtshaftsWoche to document German manufacturer Brose’s factory making seats and equipment for Jaguar Land Rover.
Food for thought in these uncertain times.
A commission from Manchester Museum to document a recent evening event as part of the Adult Programme. The highlight for me was a cyanotype workshop by Angela Tait and Ian Clegg of ATIC. These days the UV tubes they use to expose the images are considered a Health & Safety concern, yet it wasn't long ago they were used in sunbeds!
It's well worth checking out the Museum Meets programme for upcoming evening social events where artists, scientists, film makers, writers and musicians animate the collections in special one-off performances.
