I know that it’s been a long time since I’ve posted, and a lot has happened. First of all, David and I got married in London, at the Chelsea Town Hall on April 5th! It was a lovely ceremony, with a very intimate group of our family and friends followed by a delicious lunch at Bluebird. All photographs were taken by Patryk Stanisz.
There were some really great works at Paris Photo, but Santeri Tuori, a Finnish artist born in 1970, really caught my eye. These beautiful sky photographs are 150 x 187 cm and look very painterly.
And a number of galleries showed Scott Peterman photographs, which I always love. Here is a beautiful cityscape of New York.
I also discovered a young Lithuanian photographer, Indre Serpytyte, whose work explores history, memory and loss. This series invokes the memory of former houses of NKVD-NKGB-MVD-MGB Soviet forces in her native country, immediately prior to its independence from Soviet occupation.

Over the past few weeks I have been taking pictures with a disposable camera. The prints have a rather vintage feel, and here are a few of my favourites.
I recently went to the Tim Walker exhibition at Somerset House, which was great. The British born fashion photographer uses extravagant staging and creative motifs to create eye-catching images. His work is unmistakably contemporary but there is a sense of nostalgia in his strange world. The exhibition is fun, flamboyant and beautiful! And, Thames & Hudson have published a fantastic book to accompany the exhibition.
I went to the re-opening of The Photographers’ Gallery last night which was great. The building looks amazing and the Edward Burtynsky exhibition is really good. Definitely worth going to check out the new space!
It’s been raining for a long time so I thought I would share a few images of umbrellas.

We just received advance copies of Cig Harvey’s new book, You Look At Me Like An Emergency, which is wonderful! Here are a few images from the book.
I just brought home my copy of the Magnum Contact Sheets Collector’s Edition, published by Thames & Hudson! I’m now the proud owner of a Jonas Bendiksen contact sheet.
Last night was the opening of the exhibition Real Venice at Somerset House. The show features the work of 14 international photographers, each of which has donated thier work to Venice in Peril, a charity working to restore buildings and works of art inVenice. There were some beautiful photographs. Here are a few of my favorites.
I’ve recently come across this website, Things Organized Neatly, which I love! It’s my kind of minimalist style.
