I worked on an allotment series in Richmond for Gardeners’ World magazine between 2008-10. The adjacent plot was looked after by a very quiet Irishman, Michael Hobbs, who I got to know during my frequent visits. I loved his plot, which was like a 1960’s back garden, complete with gnomes and ornamental frogs, and I frequently left with handfuls of spare fruit, veg or flowers. These unpublished portraits were taken in 2010 after my last visits for GW.
From the archive – two images from The Coast of Light series. From the archive – 17.4.11, El Penitentes, – Easter Day parade, Conil, Andalucia. Large ornate floats, with statues of the Virgin Mary, are carried through town on Easter Sunday. This float probably had upwards of 30 people underneath to support the weight. More clay covered folk in Conil, Andalucia, 14.8.11 – from The Coast of Light. In Conil there is an outcrop of rock with layers of blue green clay in which bathers cover themselves, believing it’s good for the skin.
Portfolio shot from a couple of years ago – Wedding flowers, styled by Clare Nolan and Susanne Hatwood for The Mail on Sunday’s You Magazine.
From the archive, some shots of Richmond Lock and Twickenham Bridge, taken in 1997.
CND rally, Trafalgar Square,1980. Scanning more early work from London. Originally from a folio I was putting together to approach news agencies.
Speakers’ Corner, 1980. I wonder if these guys are still waiting.
From the archive, landscapes from 1981 on the Ridgeway National Trail, Hertfordshire. Shot on colour negative film and scanned.
Probably from around 1986 or 1987 for Classic and Sportscar Magazine, a 1958 Ford Thunderbird, sponsored by Schlitz Beer. The boat image was from the roof of a boathouse along Putney Embankment. I can’t remember which one, but I think we paid £30 for the hire of the boat for one hour. Probably a bargain now. And the three cars outside the Elephant on the River were on double yellow lines. Inevitably the police turned up, but as they liked the cars, they just told us to be careful of traffic and left us to it. They were friendlier then, no […]
From the archives, probably 1985, these shots were from a car shoot recce. I was after an area large enough to accommodate four or five cars and vividly remember cursing this wrecked Citröen 2CV for being in the way. In the background there is the original Butler’s Wharf building. The camera position is where the newer Butler’s Wharf apartments now stand.
