Entered this photograph to the 2019 Portrait Of Humanity awards. ‘Andy’ from the Glencoe Mountain Rescue in the Highlands of Scotland.
Andy stood at the cafe window. Raindrops obscured his features as they slanted down across the large square window pane. His long raincoat buttoned up, we headed out through the saloon-style doors, past a large ‘OPEN’ sign, now down on the ground of its proud hinges. Over the mud and patchy grass, we crossed the stream via a wobbly bridge. It was the last T-bar of the day and a great way to end this year’s winter season upon a high.
“De Motu Cordis” submitted for #lensculture Black & White Photography Awards 2018 – Wooop! Thank you (again) for the support Daniel Burrows.
Travel arterial routes as motive to change. Cities,
in this case, New York, are a living organism, their population its
blood and life force. “De Motu Cordis” is a documentation of the
movement of people through New York’s subterranean arteries. It draws a
parallel between the New York City Subway and the anatomical exercise
of the motion of the heart and blood in living beings.
Incredible night at the BFI London Film Festival to watch the world premiere of EVELYN directed by shred brother and two-time Academy Award winner, Orlando Von Einseidel. From the original footage of their childhood – the board sport culture – the diversity of the conversations between family members, friends and the randoms met whilst out on the walks, all made for a rich tapestry of bare-knuckle confrontation on a truly difficult subject, that, particularly from a male perspective, compelled one to question pre-loaded ideas of masculinity and engage in conversation. #letstalk
Thank you Orlando and best of luck for the film as it tours the country. If you’re in London it is on again tonight Curzon Cinemas in Mayfair, Edinburgh on the 27th, York on the 28th, Liverpool, Cambridge, Oxford, Norwich, Exeter, Brighton… hopefully you can’t miss it. Also, there are organised walks after the screenings so get involved!
EVELYN approaches the subject of suicide through the eyes of the friends and family impacted. Worldwide, an estimated 20 million people attempt suicide every year. These figures are shocking, but they also show that suicidal feelings are something that many of us may experience at some point in our lives.
Despite increased public awareness, suicide and mental health problems still carry a huge stigma, which stops people from sharing their feelings or struggles.

Just back from a two week trip to New York City. This is not the first time that I’ve been to Manhattan and always enjoy the block format walks across the metropolis. However on this occasion I chose to be more structured and head out on specific walks across certain areas of the city.
What is most inspiring about this city is the variety of people from all walks of life that you pass on a daily basis. Yes, this could be said for London also but New York has a very vibrant culture that seems to have more unity. Perhaps this is the ‘American Dream’ or the result of the 9/11 attacks.
Portrait of Tony Arcabascio in his Centre Street office, New York City. I’ve only known Tony these past few years (thank you for the intro Ed Leigh ) and I’m always stoked and inspired to meet up, talk design projects with him and generally shoot the breeze. Thank you for your hospitality once again.
