You might remember our various entries about the “Home Time – Photography Finding A Home” exhibition by Cambridge Jones at the Getty Images Gallery in London, in connection with “Barnardo’s”, the charity promoting adoption in the UK.

Thanks to Dora, we can now share two more pictures of Jack Davenport with and without the two cute bairns:

Btw. in reply to a frequently asked question: we have no idea if those photographs are up for sale. They probably were during the exhibition.

And now for something completely different.

Facebook is, without a doubt, a fantastic place if you get your kicks from zombyfiing people or throwing sheep after them. However, we’re not there, and we have no intention to get an account. So there’s no Sparky on facebook, bebo, faceparty, twitter, vox or myspace. Especially not on myspace. You couldn’t be less on myspace than we are. Thanks!

In connection with the recent “Home Time – Photography Finding A Home” exhibition at the Getty Images Gallery in London, “Marie Claire” runs an article in its June issue about both the exhibition and “Barnardo’s”, the charity promoting adoption in the UK.

It kind of baffles me that one even has to promote adoption. If you needn’t to be married for five years, “unwillingly childless” and have the income of a bank director where I live, I’d done it long ago. Anyway, initiator of this event was/is photographer Cambridge Jones, and many celebrities participated in this exhibition, among them Jack Davenport and Andrew Lincoln.

If you’re interested in adoption, please check out Barnardo’s. It’s a good thing, folks.

“(…) It’s vital that people are reminded about adoption – there are so many children in the UK in need of a loving family. It can change lives in the profoundest way imaginable. – Jack Davenport (…)”

Do you remember the “Home Time – Photography Finding A Home” exhibition in benefit of Barnardo’s Charity?

According to photographer Cambridge Jones, Channel 4 are “in discussions with Shine TV to make a documentary of the whole project.”

The exhibition at The Getty Images Gallery in London consisted of pictures taken by children of celebrities and pictures of celebrities taken of the children.

Whether this project will ever be realised is unknown; at the moment, Channel 4 is busy producing milestones of TV history like “The World’s Fattest Pet and Me”.
