This weekend marks the end of a month long show of Ukranian artists at the Saatchi Gallery. Until Monday 3 November.
Kiev/London based artist Vinny Reunov is one of 38 Ukranian artists in a show entitled ‘Premonition: Ukranian Art Now’ which aims to provide ‘a broad introduction to the diverse and energetic nature of Ukraine’s art-scene’. Reunov has been painting ‘in situ’ for much of the show.

This week was spent editing images from the British Cheese Awards. Comissioned by Alex James (musician and cheese maker) Craig Hunt and I arrived at Alex’s farm in the Cotswolds with the daunting task of photographing 900 varieties of British cheeses entered for the British Cheese Awards over two days.
A marvellous experience. Some delicious cheeses and eventful portrait session with Alex in a field of bullocks who came charging (well trotting) towards us. I sat back into a fresh cowpat which added to the relaxed and spontaneous atmosphere of the shoot…
Particular thanks goes to our able assistants Rory and Max and to Juliet Harbutt, the doyen of the cheese world for accommodating us on this ambitious project. Will keep you posted on the record breaking catalogue of British cheeses. 90 remain to be photographed.
Here’s a link to a slideshow of a very small selection of the cheeses.
