Fujifilm Finepix X10

Now I am not really sure about this camera. I posted the promo video for it a few months back, which generated some interest, but since then there has not been a lot going on. But now we are getting the adverts on the tv in Japan and the big stores have got shelves full […]

I was lucky enough this week to go to a Robert Frank exhibition in Tokyo at Gallery Bauhaus with my good friend John Sypal. It turns out there was a show of Frank’s work, including original prints and contact sheets from ‘outside my window’ and ‘flower is’. You can see the site for the gallery […]

It is about time I posted a video, though I have been so busy lately that I have not had time to find any. But, lo and behold this one popped into my field of vision. Helen Levitt is one of the great unsung New York street photographers of the 20th century. Not as aggressive […]

It has been a while since I have put a video up, so I thought is should be one with some substance and verve. I decided on Coney Island by Bruce Gilden as it is a series by a photographer that polarizes many people. Whilst I am generally not a huge fan of Gilden’s work, […]

Having recently been in the darkroom again after a long period of absence, I was fortunate enough to have the chance to produce about 50 contact sheets of my recent work. I had quite forgotten what a thoroughly rewarding and wasteful experience this was. Rewarding in that you can clearly see what you have been […]

Yes, Nikon have finally announced it, after all this time and all the speculation Nikon has finally released its mirrorless camera system. Well, better late than never, but it looks already like they have thought them out quite well. Simplist design and high specs are going to make this a very popular product indeed. The […]

Although little is known about the photographer, he does managed to capture some really interesting street images. He recently released a book called ‘Vintage 80’s:London street photography‘ which documents humorous and sometimes […]
