5,742 Days

Monday, November 25th, 2013

A very courageous and wise friend has written a beautiful book, sharing how she’s dealt with the most traumatic loss and found strength and positivity in the toughest of times. Her experience puts a new perspective on everyday life stresses while dealing with the most unimaginable tragedy. I’ve heard snippets from this philosophical and beautifully written work and have been transfixed. If you’re looking for a good read, inner strength, positivity and self belief, I’m sure you would benefit from reading 5,742 Days.

New photography book

Monday, November 11th, 2013

I was given a Holga* for my birthday in August 2006 and have carried it around with me ever since. My new book, the follow up to Holga Photography, contains 72 favourite photographs taken by me between April 2009 and August 2013.

Buy this lovely book, sit down with a cup of tea and enjoy looking at more blurred, square photographs of trees, snow, bicycles, cars, pugs, pylons, people and much, much more.

*The Holga is very cheap, plastic, medium format film camera. Made in China, its poor construction means that no two Holga’s leave the factory quite the same. Light can often leak onto the film and the poor lens causes blur and other distortions. No aperture setting and no real control over the focusing, add to its unique charm.
