Fans and followers will recognise this photo taken a few weeks ago at Utsumi. It’s now available as print-on-demand clothing. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking and planning for the shoot, and then a lot of time thinking and planning the design of this print. There are two shirts, one is of a heavier cloth (great for all-year round wear), and the other is lighter (great for hot weather). All other items are light and roll up small, so can easily fit into any backpack or carry bag for whatever adventure you’re on. The hoodie is great for late or early summer and spring & autumn. Get them now, while they’re hot. Oh, and older and discontinued products gets taken offline. So, if you’re looking for a item that was there, but can’t find it, it might be sadly gone forever.

I’ve been wanting to make these sorts of things for a very long time, and finally I have the opportunity to do so. I’m really excited to do two things at once: one, create something that people can use to promote protecting the environment; two, educate with a real example. A sample of the products:
ABlyth Art Series, Burning Skies & Yokkaichi Skies products
This photo of the ventilation towers was taken in Yokkaichi Japan, which was once the most polluted cities in the country. The most prominent problem was in the 1960’s to 1980’s was “Yokkaichi Asthma”. The cause was SOx being released from the petrochemical plants at the harbour where this photo was taken. Today, Yokkaichi people enjoy cleaner air and water, because of a change in government and corporate policies; a change that can be done anywhere in the world. Japan’s major petrochemical companies, oil imports, and petrol refineries are still in Yokkaichi, and are still in operation, but with filters, cleaners, and improved operation standards. There were really three groups involved, the public, government, and corporations, and it was the public that forced the government and corporations to re-align their priorities.
The message has been made into t-shirts for both men and women, into bags that can be worn over your jumpers/sweaters, and with and without text. Consider getting the no-text version, and write your own message over the top with white paint.

This is the Poem of a Cacophonous City. It is a collection of film images that represents the noise and clutter of Nagoya, a major city in central Japan. It is inspired by a friend of mine, a lady who is twice my age, but she really loves poetry, and is so deep into it, it is astounding at her insight into language and the visual poetry I see in my head when I listen to her read or perform her work. Subtitles for each image also connote a particular aspect of cities. Here is the first blogpost on this collection: POTW: Poem of a Cacophonous City.
My PhotoShelter account uses a variety of vendors for customers who wish to order prints and products. However, for Exposure Manager there will be a very short and temporary disruption to services. I only just received this e-mail:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, our print partner Exposure Manager will be offline for an unspecified period of time tomorrow (Thursday, March 31st) beginning around 3pm. We anticipate the downtime to be about 3 hours, but as the situation is unfortunately out of our control, we are unable to provide an exact time estimate. We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but no orders containing Exposure Manager prints/products will be able to be placed during this outage. During this window, customers attempting to purchase Exposure Manager prints/products from your site will be met with a “temporary unavailable” message when attempting checkout.
