ART FIX: Drone photographer snaps airport fire rescue


A local photographer known for his breathtaking aerial photographs has revisited his former firefighting career to shoot the Airport’s crew as they tackled a simulated fire on a plane.

Every Friday, Express is presenting a selection of online exhibitions, performances and other historic and creative content to help islanders continue getting their weekly dose of culture throughout the pandemic.

Here's this week's offering...

Playing with fire

Marc Le Cornu of Bam Perspectives was recently invited to photograph the Jersey Airport’s Rescue and Firefighting Service as they carried out an exercise on a simulated aircraft fire on their fire training rig. 

“Capturing the power of the water monitors and the skills of the firefighters was a great opportunity and I hope it is a small way of celebrating our local firefighters!” Marc, who spent three decades in the fire service, said.

“As an ex-firefighter myself, it was good to be back alongside the flames! Hope you like these shots as much as I enjoyed capturing them!”

Shakespeare Shorts

 

Despite what the name may suggest, Shakespeare Shorts has nothing to do with what garment the Bard used to wear in this time... It’s a new performance project launched by Jersey Arts Centre to showcase monologue and soliloquy highlights from William Shakespeare’s plays.

Each performed by a JAC actor, Shakespeare Shorts aims to help visitors immerse themselves in two minutes of “culture, scenery, language and history”.  

The first instalment features Nicole Twinam as Prospero from 'The Tempest'. 

And for some music… 

Singer Adria Godfrey has kept busy during lockdown preparing for future performances and working online with musicians in the UK and Europe.

The group featured in the latest video released by ArtHouse Jersey Presents shows musicians from the Netherlands, the UK, Portugal and Jersey.

With Adria, they performed an extract of 'Aranjuez ma pensée', followed by their own arrangement of Duke Ellington’s 'Caravan'.
