This is Tim

Last night was the London launch of this year's Guernsey Photography Festival. With major international photographers such as Martin Parr and Richard Billingham and newcomers like Jocelyn Allen it looks to build on the great success of the last years inaugural event.

One exhibition at the festival that caught my eye is Tim Andrews' project Over the Hill - in his own words "A photographic project involving a guy with Parkinson's Disease who has been photographed over the last four years by 129 different photographers".

You may have heard of him, he was featured in the Guardian recently and I first came across the project through Chris Floyd, a photographer who has recently been part of Andrews' project. Floyd describes his part in Over the Hill on his blog, you can also find Floyd's short film This is Tim.

The second Guernsey Photography Festival 2011 takes place this June and includes exhibitions by renowned international photographers Richard Billingham, Carolyn Drake, Samuel Fosso, Martin Parr and Tony Ray-Jones.
