Gallery 275 in the Westbourne Grove area last night played host to a private view organised by &Son., the creative consultancy founded by Simon Foxton and his new business partner Nick Griffiths. The work of five photographers was shown: J.B., Pete Drinkell, Jeremy Murch, Paul Wetherell and David Hughes, many of whom showed a preoccupation with moody landscapes and experimentations in slow exposure. David Hughes' (above) peculiar images of metamorphosis and whimsical sacrilege leapt out - for a start, they weren't landscape; for seconds, they were kind of trippy too. A work in progress, Hughes told me a lot of his work is born of happy accidents playing around with objects in his search for new 'broken allegories'.

    That is a good name for a bar.** Although if it's completely paeelnd in fake wood,' a more apt name might be Cialas Bar.You know, if this Great Recession becomes the new normal, we should at least demand more genuine dive bar options (although more likely they'll raise the drinking age to 26).
