The London Eye

Man jumping on top of columns in front of the London Eye.

Wrapping up my unexpectedly wonderful trip to London and Paris. I've had my chance to pay respects to my dear uncle Bill and family and also to rediscover this great city that I can now happily call my second home. I made this picture two days after seeing a most excellent Cartier Bresson exhibit at Somerset House that was so amazingly inspiring. Bresson shunned colour photography but also inspired generations of photographers to go out and see,  feel, capture and express the juxtaposition of  beauty, sadness and movement that is all around us.

Jarmusch on Authenticity

"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to." - Jim Jarmusch

New York @ Night

Young and upcoming Bang Bang Eche from New Zealand playing at the Mercury Lounge

An empty dive on the upper West side? That would be the Ding Dong Lounge.

Maybe Manhattan's best kept secret - The Campbell Apartment - inside Grand Central. Thanks to the lovely Natalia for your beauty and your patient pose. If you've never been, you've never been to New York I'd say, proper attire required.

Moto on a Monday night? Best bar in Williamsburg for sure, just ask any local that's been in the hood for more than 8 years. Even the kids love MOTO.
