This June I'm working with RIBA Sussex on an exhibition of my work at the Jubilee Library in Brighton. The theme is 'Space Invaders'.
Curated by RIBA Sussex chair and director at Conran & Partners, Paul Zara, and arts curator and writer Cara Courage, my images have been paired with those of some guest photographers to investigate the way in which people use (and misuse) architecture and the built environment; architecture as the backdrop to life. The guest photographers include John Maclean, Andy Spain, Anita Barrett, Darren O'Brien, Paul Russell, Rob Gifford, Heidi Kuisma and Sahil Lodha. The printing of the exhibition is kindly sponsored by Spectrum.
The exhibition will run from Monday 13th June to Sunday 26th June, with a Private View opening on Wednesday 15th. If you'd like to come to the Private View, please email Paul Zara on firstname.lastname@example.org

Homogen is a new collaborative project I've been working on with the illustrator Billy Mather. It explores the common origin of creativity across the disciplines of photography and illustration; merging the two and creating a playful and experimental celebration of our work.

For Jim and Edward's next Lightbulb video, they spoke with Red Deer, an open design collaborative, formed by three guys from the same commercial practice. They cite one of their key strengths as they way each member bring their own distinctive approach to the design-making process, despite their similar commercial experience.

Continuing with Jim's Lightbulb project with Edward Bishop, the pair interviewed We Made That, a young and energetic architecture and design practice formed in 2006 by Oliver Goodhall and Holly Lewis. The practice has a strong portfolio, which is comprised of an eclectic mix of architecture, landscape, art, research and publishing, and which has a strong engagement with the local community.

Recently, Jim has been collaborating with film maker Edward Bishop on a series of short videos for a project called Lightbulb. Combining their various experience and talents, Stephenson / Bishop have worked together to for a host of clients, including Sou Fujimoto and the Serpentine Gallery, Carl Turner Architects, Studio Weave, and many more, to create films on architecture and the built environment. Building on this partnership, they've started creating the weekly Lightbulb series, a host of 90-second films that feature an interview with a different artist or designer each Friday. The series focuses upon the inspirations, processes, and working environments of various designers, craftspeople and artists.
