I’m enjoying looking through Daily Overview – a fantastic blog of stunning satellite imagery of Earth. Also available to follow on Instagram.

As featured in the latest issue of Wired.

The Rehearsal of Space and the Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite

The Rehearsal of Space and the Poetic Impossibility to Manage the Infinite / Edgar Martins, 2014

One of my favourite photographers, Edgar Martins, has just released his latest body of work. He spent the last few years documenting the European Space Agency, and the result is a breathtaking visual survey of this scientific world.

The project is currently on show at the Wapping Project Bankside – I urge you to go and see these prints, some of which are up to 2m in size. Also, the book is available now via The Moth House.

Vincent Fillon – City One

City One / Vincent Fillon, 2014

I love a series of high-rise apartment blocks, and this project by photographer Vincent Fillon is a classic. ‘City One’ is a truly remarkable development in Hong Kong, built during the 70s and 80s. Comprising 52 identical apartment blocks, it’s home to some 40,000 people.

These prints are currently on show in Paris at See Studio. Up close you can really get a sense of the extreme detail in these images; well worth checking out if you’re in the city.

NEW — photography portfolio

Untitled, Hastings / Tim George, 2013

I’m very pleased to announce that my photography portfolio now has its own dedicated website.

I’ve been using Flickr for the past few years, but recently I’ve been taking my photography practice much more seriously and, as such, I thought it was about time my images were on display somewhere a bit more bespoke.

You can visit now at: photo.tim-george.co.uk

Thanks for looking!

Also, a quick note to say this is the first site I’ve built on the Cargo platform, and I found the whole experience absolutely fantastic. Over the last few years I’ve experimented with a lot of the new hosting sites – Squarespace, Koken, etc – and Cargo really blew me away with its simple design, flexibility, and ease of use. Top marks!

Exploring the Post Office Railway

Wow. And I thought my visit to Aldwych abandoned station was impressive… these guys from Silent UK (an urban exploration blog) managed to access and explore the entirety of the ‘Mail Rail’ – an underground railway built beneath London to transport post from East to West, and abandoned since 2003.

Amazing pictures and words here.

Adrift

Adrift / Simon Christen, 2013

Adrift is a stunning time-lapse film of the San Francisco bay area, as mist & fog rolls in from the Marin Headlands. Shot by Simon Christen, an ex-Pixar animator turned photographer. Nice original score by The Album Leaf too.

New photography — Brighton

Brighton / Tim George, 2013

Brighton / Tim George, 2013

New photography up on my Flickr page – taken during a traditional English bank holiday seaside trip. I always find places like Brighton a really interesting challenge to photograph. It’s so difficult to bring a new dimension to the place – the same clichéd shots have been done over and over again.

I’m not saying I found anything radically different this time around, but the light was gorgeous and I’m pretty pleased with a few of my shots. Certainly captures the feel of the place anyway.

Oh, also, I’m loving the new Flickr since it was re-designed. A massive improvement from the old style, it feels really fresh and clean now, as well as being a whole lot simpler.
