Photography Work Experience Opportunity (Voluntary Position)

An exciting opportunity for a talented Photographer wanting to gain professional work experience.

John Jones is collaborating with artist/designer Stuart Haygarth to produce a large scale installation at the V&A as part of the London Design Festival 2010.

Based around Stuart’s ethos of creating artwork using found materials, the piece will be composed of mouldings from John Jones frames, in a variety of colours, textures and finishes which will cascade down the staircase at the entrance of the V&A.

We need to source a talented photographer who would be interested in documenting the various stages of the project. This is a great way to build up your portfolio, whilst working alongside some of the key cultural institutions in London. Once complete there is also a possibility that a small publication may be made including the photographic work.

If you are interested in becoming involved please email marketing@johnjones.co.uk with a maximum of 5 examples of your work and your CV.
Please note that this project is already underway and will continue until mid September. Key dates for photographic work will be communicated, however, we are looking for a photographer who is able to offer a certain amount of flexibility with their availability.

The deadline for submitting your interest is Wednesday 21st July.
Please note: only shortlisted photographers will be contacted

John Jones Create Bespoke Leather Frame

Leather designer Bill Amberg has created bespoke pieces for some of the world’s most prestigious institutions from Asprey and Claridges in London to Burberry in Milan and lightweight, fireproof leather for Lufthansa Technic’s specialist planes.
As part of the London Festival of Architecture John Jones have worked with Bill Amberg to produce a beautiful bespoke leather frame. The frame will house one of a series of photographs customised with art and design by some of the country’s leading talents, displaying under-used parts of our urban landscape as areas of great potential. The project, a collaboration between charity Shelter and building design consultancy Urban Infill, seeks to encourage the viewer to look at London’s disused spaces in a different light and can also create their own ideas for the spaces on a public interactive wall.
The framed piece, along with the other works, will be for sale via silent auction, with all proceeds going to Shelter.

The exhibition closes and bidding ends at 6pm on Sunday 4 July.
