The Colors of India

“There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds. It was as if all my life I had been seeing the world in black and white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor.”

Nice surprise from @vsco landed in my inbox! My picture from the Bakewell Show in Derbyshire is now featured on the #vscogrid. Brilliant! (at look mum no hands!)

Got me some Hello Beautiful Foundation @hbcanceruk cancer charity coasters for my coffee table…which isn’t really a coffee table as such, due to the excessive volume of tea that is drunk from it. From now on, my tea (& a great deal of drinking establishments in London!) shall be aesthetically complimented by @janehutchison8’s designs & messages. Inspirational. “Non toxic must be your mind. Positive must be your thoughts.” #hellobeautiful #cancerawareness #cancer #design #health #fitness (at Wanstead Park)


I love Vivian Maier. Much in the same way I love Jacques Henri Lartigue.

Now there would be a pair. Imagine them, meeting & having a conversation.

Or rather…warm & gregarious Jacques, engineering a conversation in French to the cold & austere Anglo-American Vivian.

Would she have answered in her mother tongue or made Jacques speak in broken English?

Would she have found it another intrusion?

Make contact yourself with Vivian here, John Maloof has updated her website now with quite a few contact sheets, which are well worth a browse through.

I love how she takes one frame & moves onto the next. Reminds me of how the American Southern gentleman William Eggleston also shoots his images.

Why exhaust a subject….?

Finding Vivian Maier movie is out now. Watch the trailer.

Buttertubs by James Maloney/Liverpool Echo Waitning in York by Chris Marriott


Here’s a brilliant new photobook that’s now on my bookshelf, 'TWO DAYS In Yorkshire' by Peter Cossins & Andrew Denton, the Official Commemorative Book of the Yorkshire Grand Départ for the Tour De France.

I’m still in awe of the picture of Buttertubs by James Maloney/Liverpool Echo on the cover & double spread on the inside. It should win a few awards this year.

This second image of the guy in his deckchair is one of my favourite photographs in the book, shot in York by Chris Marriott. Very Northern!

It’s a great book if you’re into your cycling, but also a great show of some superb British press photography.


Paris-based creative studio Maison Carnot is showing off their home city in the most charming of ways.

Utilizing the legendary Pentax 67 TLR, the team shows you the iconic views of Paris through the camera’s viewfinder.
