Superman’s Pockets was a successful collaboration with photographer Timothy Foster. The result was a limited edition, spandex covered, book featuring six of the nine superheroes that Foster captured on film: Maths Man, Captain Beany Dougy, Mr Methane, Angle-Grinder Man and Supertranny. It is indicative of the quality of his beautiful, honest and unconstructed photographs, which are not judgmental or patronising, but reflect the genuine affection, respect and empathy that Foster felt for each individual.

“Superman’s pockets started as a piece of conceptual documentary with a political intent but ended up being something about human fallibility. What I liked about the series was that it was about people on the fringe of society who had just as much to say about life and how we live it than those we deem ‘normal’.”

Time for a change in direction

A little update from us at Fivefootsix. 

The fast pace of running Fivefootsix hasn’t given us much time to stop and properly think about the future. However, celebrating our tenth anniversary this year presented an opportunity to both reflect and to look forward. And, after a hugely exciting journey, we’ve taken the decision to bring our current agency operations to a close, allowing us to end things on a high, and turn our attentions to new challenges ahead.

Although we’re sad to say goodbye to Fivefootsix, we are also incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in that time, and the calibre of clients we’ve worked with. Brands like BBC Children in Need, Ben & Jerry’s, Birley, UEFA and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), as well as our own projects, like The Art of Ping Pong, which will continue to develop.

Most importantly, the last ten years would not have been possible without the support of the hugely talented Fivefootsix team, both past and present.

Thanks to everyone who’s joined us on the journey and been part of that success. Hopefully we’ll have the chance to work with many of you again in the future.

If you can, please join us for some drinks at The Art of Ping Pong 2015 launch event, on November 5th at 7pm at the KK Outlet in Hoxton.
