Buenos Aires ‘Live like a local’ for National Geographic Traveller UK

I recently got back to Rio from Buenos Aires where I was shooting an assignment for the UK edition of National Geographic Traveller. It’s for the ‘Live like a local’ section, showing readers some ideas for doing just that, living like a local.

The piece runs in the May edition of the print magazine, but for now here’s a preview of one of the images, Tango at El Cathedral, a classic BA Milonga!

2014 – An exciting year ahead…

Happy New Year 2014!

2013 was a busy and exciting year, which started in Cuba shooting a story about Santeria religion (now available for syndication, contact me for info). Whilst in Havana I did a piece for BBC travel, and a city guide for National Geographic Traveller. Next was Jamaica for a personal reggae journey, which included photographing an orthodox Rastafarian community, the story is to be distributed by PYMCA.

        

Returning to London in March, I threw myself into a project about Free Party Rave culture, a subject close to my heart and my major project for MA Photojournalism at the University of Westminster, graduating with Distinction. Some of the work was published in Dazed and the Telegraph online. In November 2014, it’s 20 years since the Criminal Justice Bill made raves illegal, ‘Free to Party’ is due to be published in book form, showing how this important subculture has continued, regardless of being outlawed for so long. Available for syndication as a feature, contact me for further details  (+44 7748 800276)Other notable moments in 2013 included; photographing the West Indies Cricket Team for sponsor Confident Group; updated website and licensable online archive; new representation by Mike Kemp’s In Pictures and music culture archive PYMCA. I’ve also added lots to my collections managed by Robert Harding and 4 Corners, did an assignment in Prague for BBC travel, got Lewes bonfires into GEO Saison, spoke on a panel at One World Media festival about Retomada (which they funded in 2012) and saw Retomada shortlisted for the Amnesty Media Awards.


2014 I’m based in Brazil, available for assignment throughout Latin America

First stop is Salvador de Bahia to shoot Afro-Brazilian Candomble for the religion project. Then Buenos Aires for National Geographic Traveller; the Street Child World Cup in Rio; after that further plans TBC.

The final, and possibly most significant piece of news is that as Gaia Media; Jonathan Perugia, myself and Toby Richards are about to start a two year contract for the United Nation’sWSSCC / Global Sanitation Fund (GSF). The project will be documenting the implementation and auditing of WASH initiatives in 10 focus countries throughout 2014 and 2015.

It recently came to my attention there was a technical issue with my email hosting, so if you sent a message to phil@philclarkehill.co.uk and didn’t receive a response – it’s because I didn’t receive it. My sincerest apologies, it has now been rectified.
