Teesside’s only live music and art event comes to Vinyl in Stockton on Friday 22nd February. With music from A Day In HelsinkiHivemind and Laura Kelbrick there’s also an art and photography exhibition from Emily Clark and Andy Lochrie. Lochrie was kind enough to share some words on five of his favourite photos, with two of these in Friday’s exhibition.

In November we went to New York and took in the Macy’s Day parade. As we arrived at 6:15am on the coldest Thanksgiving Day for over a century, the temperature was showing -6°C. Five and a half hours later when we walked away it was down to -9°C. This image was taken while waiting for the parade to arrive at our viewing position.

After a day out wandering around Liverpool we were just about to call it a day when we took in The Beatles statue at Pier Head on the Waterfront. I wasn’t seeing anything that caught my attention until this guy suddenly climbed up onto John Lennon.

Another shot from the same day in Liverpool taken while wandering around Albert Dock. Taking candid images you need to be very aware of what’s happening around you as usually you’ll only get a couple of seconds to get the shot you want before it’s gone. This image allowed me slightly longer as the couple tenderly took in the view of the dock.

While visiting Dublin I was very interested in the memorial commemorating the mid 19th Century Great Famine. It was a surprisingly tricky memorial to get a shot of that I was happy with and I’d just about given up when the two girls on the right started to walk away. Their subsequent fleeting embrace gave me the shot I’d been striving for.

Dublin has many bars and trying to get the punters in can be hot and tiring work for a leprechaun. Sometimes you just need to take a break.
