Helsinki / 2014
News: I’ve just uploaded some brand new photography from a recent trip to the Finnish capital. Most of the shots I took were of store fronts and signage. There’s a hell of a lot of neon in the city; a friend of mine joked that it’s there because it gets so dark in the winter, so they need it to find their way around! Maybe there’s some truth in that. Anyway, there’s a lot of really beautiful old signs, amongst many other cool things to check out. Worth a visit!
Duxford / 2014
Some new photography from a recent trip to IWM Duxford.
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.
Holding Pattern / Lauren O’Neill, 2014
Holding Pattern is a great Tumblr blog by Lauren O’Neill collating various airports from across the world, as seen from above.
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.
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.

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.
