A Journey Through The Lens

A Journey Through The Lens

The image above is a particularly cool section of the Transfăgărășan, a frequently nasty mountain road that crosses Romania. The dot on the road in the far distance on the right, just past the bend, is my pal on his motorbike.

About Me

Documentary Photographer, Writer, Rollerskater, Gig-Goer, Theatre Lover and Enthusiast Coder, that’s me.

I like motorbiking, origami, guitars, drum machines and a vast pile of unread books – and all those things feature here.

#THESHELLGAME: I love watching this classic street short-con, seen guys take ten minutes to make £300 from unsuspecting marks. Cups-and-balls-with-shills-and-cheating, I admire what you can do with a rug, a box and three matchboxes, all completely innocent, officer. TOP TIP: if you ever see a guy holding the cash, it’s because it helps to hide the sleight-of-hand - a magician mate explained this to me. #london #shortcon #streetgambling #bricklane

#BLACKMANSSHOES: sad to report that the shop is no longer operating - they refused to sell online for decades but have had to capitulate and finally switched from store to website. Cheshire Street has been scrubbed up nicely, been a long time since MME Motorcycles operated out of a poky garage in Grimsby Street, or a Ukulele Shop could find it more affordable than Hanbury Street… #london #bricklane

#THECITY: it’s 9pm on a Friday in November 2008, we’re a month-and-a-half from Lehman Brothers collapsing and everyone is still nervous as hell about the global financial crisis. They could care less about another photographer. #london #bankofengland

#OMNIFARIOUS: the @southbankcentre has been a favourite spot of mine for decades, and despite being busier than ever, they have retained the openness to the public that they’ve always had. The large mirrors on the lower floor attract practicing dancers; nooks, crannies, expanses - spaces for everyone to hang out. It’s hardly a well-kept-secret, but there are few buildings anywhere which let you feel part of something bigger while you do your thing.
