Italian soldiers keep watch in a snow-covered valley, in Afghanistan's volatile Wardak province, January 10, 2007. The situation was still largely peaceful in 2007, but four years later it was the scene of America's worst single loss of life during their Afghanistan campaign, when a Chinook helicopter was shot down in the nearby Tangi valley, killing 25 Special Forces soldiers, five National Guardsmen, seven Afghan commandos and an Afghan translator. The Italioan soldiers (pictured) were part of the Nato-led International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) and were supporting a psychological operations (psy-ops) mission to win over local support by handing out blankets, charcoal and food.

Another f#@*& perfect day!

My outfit for White Mischief Halloween 2011

A long-drop loo on the lawn of Clouds, the old home of Lady Idina Sackville. The house was famous for it's wild dinner parties and nights of wife-swapping, where aristocratic guests would roll dice or blow feathers at each other, to determine the evening's pairings. It was bought from the government by a civil servant in 1969 for 75,000 Kenyan Shillings (£560). The family of born-again Christians say they can't afford to maintain the buildings. They said they rarely have parties because they don't drink alcohol and they don't have many friends. They keep sheep in the old kitchen, the dining room is now a maize store and they keep potatoes in the old gatehouses. They felled an avenue of more than 20 gum trees in 2003, after one of them collapsed onto the house.

Clouds, the dilapidated old home of Lady Idina Sackville was famous for it's wild dinner parties and nights of wife-swapping, where guests would roll dice or blow feathers across a bedsheet, to determine the evening's pairings. It was bought in 1969 by the late Norman Nuthu, a civil servant from the Land Adjudication & Settlement Department. He paid 75,000 Kenyan Shillings (£560) to the government who had owned the property since independence. His elderly wife Grace, their four grown-up children, two spouses and nine grandchildren live there today. The family of born-again Christians say they can't afford to maintain the buildings. They said they rarely have parties because they don't drink alcohol and they don't have many friends.

A lion's mouth spout, over the bath in Lady Idina Sackville's old home Clouds, in Kenya. The house, which has fallen into disrepair, was once the headquarters of Kenya's Happy Valley swingers. Sackville, who scandalised British Edwardian society by abandoning her husband and two young sons to run away to Kenya, married another four men during her lifetime. She would often greet guests at Clouds from her bathroom, which linked her room to a guest room, where they would roll dice or blow feathers at one another to determine an evening's pairings. The house was bought by a civil servant in 1969 by a Kenyan civil servant, and his family still lives there. They say they would like to restore the house to its former, but can't afford to.

This series of photos was shot for White Mischief's Halloween event in 2010. It was shot in London in September 2010.

 

From www.WhiteMischief.info:

"White Mischief is a one night indoor festival combining unique live musical acts with some of the most astonishing vaudeville and circus performers around.

 

Added to the mix are interactive experiences, spontaneous encounters with musicians and costumed characters in unexpected quarters… and a range of DJs representing every genre from jazz, blues and rock’n'roll to country and world music.

 

With four rooms of entertainment, two music stages and another room for those who want VIP tickets, there’s an extraordinary abundance of fun to be had during the seven hours of a White Mischief party. It’s a show from start to finish, so we invite guests to arrive as early as they can to be sure of catching everything.

 

No wonder Time Out called White Mischief 'event of the week, the month, the year!'"

Stinging nettles, weeds and wild trees have taken hold on the lawn at Clouds, the old home of Lady Idina Sackville, which was famous for it's wild dinner parties and nights of wife-swapping, where guests would roll a dice or blow feathers at each other in an adjacent room, to determine the evening's pairings. The house has been falling into disrepair since it was bought, in 1969, by a civil servant who worked for Kenya's Land Adjudication & Settlement Department for 75,000 Kenyan Shillings (£560). The family of born-again Christians say they can't afford to maintain the buildings. They said they rarely have parties because they don't drink alcohol and they don't have many friends. They keep sheep in the old kitchen, the dining room is now a maize store and they keep potatoes in the old gatehouses. They felled an avenue of more than 20 gum trees in 2003, after one of them collapsed onto the house. They said they would like to restore it to its former glories but can't afford to.
