Holy Rollers, Secret Societies and Skeletons

Here are some of the results from a fun roll of Fomapan 400 ive shot in the wonderful Leica Standard/Heliar 15mm set up.

I was fortunate enough to be passing St. Pancras Hotel when this amazing Silver Wraith was parked outside. Caught eye contact with the chauffeur, pointed to my camera, he nodded and I merrily snapped away. I LOVE classic Rollers sooo much. One day, when I’m rich, I’ll be travelling in style behind my very own Spirit of Ecstasy.

While wandering up Carnaby Street this fellow filmie stopped me to admire my Leica M3 I had swinging around my neck. After the pretty much standard conversation about how wonderful Leicas are and how satisfying shooting and developing film is, I pulled out the Standard/Heliar and snapped him while he took my portrait.  Film photographers, are as a general rule, great people.

Really liked this stencil outside the Borderline – Ive some really hazy fuzzy memories of having a little too much fun in that place a few times in my youth.

So it seems I managed to stumble upon the Head Quarters of a Secret Serbian Society …..

Enjoyed playing with the pointy angles this spot of St Giles in the Fields offered.  15mm really opens up some amazing shooting.

Me and my girlfriend visited the Wellcome Collection, absolutely fascinating displays. Freaky medical advances in the study of the sub consciousness; really sent shivers down my spine. And of course there was some fun stuff too…

Finally, my latest ongoing project is a collection of images taken inside telephone boxes.  The humble telephone box was once a crucial form of communication that kept society on the move. I remember running around town with a pocket full of coins hunting down a phonebox, only to have to queue in the rain for my turn to make that urgent call.  Nowadays, as everyone carries their own personal phone, they are tiny spaces just out of the way of the public eye for any manner of dubious activities.

What ever happened to the telephone box?
