  1. Glad you’re well mate, but... Haha Rabski a mod! Seems there’s been 1 or 2 unforeseen changes here lately!
  2. Mick or anyone else interested in Street Photography should try to attend this event if it runs again next year! http://streetlondon.co.uk/ Here’s an handful of photos from 2018
  3. Hey Richard, how are you? I only pop in very occasionally now & that’s only to check out the photography forum!
  4. Lucky enough to meet Joel Meyerowitz a couple of weeks ago & get a couple of books signed. Very interesting impromptu speech he gave too! http://www.adammaizey.com/blog/2018/8/26/street-london-2018-joel-meyerowitz
  5. The Exhibition "States of America" photography from the Civil Rights Movement to the Reagan Era is on at Nottingham Contemporary until 26th of November 2017. A wonderful exhibition of some 200-250 photos that we are lucky to have on here in Nottingham. It's well worth a visit if you're in the area, in fact it's so good it's worth making a special trip to see. I've visited 4 times so far & intend to go back again a few more times before it finishes. Artists included in the exhibition: Diane Arbus, Dawoud Bey, Mark Cohen, Bruce Davidson, Louis Draper, William Eggleston, Lee Friedlander, Jim Goldberg, Danny Lyons, Mary Ellen Mark, Nicholas Nixon, Bill Owens, Milton Rogovin, Stephen Shore, Joseph Szabo and Garry Winogrand http://www.nottinghamcontemporary.org/art/states-america
  6. I recently met Rammy after he gave a speech at the 2nd London Street Photography Symposium http://streetlondon.co.uk/ I've followed his progress for years over on Flickr & he's such a nice down to earth guy in the flesh! His speech & images were so good I bought a copy of his "Platform 10" book. Which is very good. The Symposium isn't a cheap weekend but well worth a visit. There's some interesting Street Photographers there to share their experiences.
  7. Great video's Mick! Not many photographers get anywhere near HCB or ever will. A true master. His book HCB- "The Decisive Moment" is well worth finding a copy of the recent reprint. Also look out for this book coming back in print very soon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bystander-History-Photography-Colin-Westerbeck/dp/1786270668/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1506973286&sr=1-1&keywords=bystander+a+history+of+street+photography
  8. Hana SL or SH. The Shibata stylus digs deep & brings an whole new lease of life to older records. It's not as lively as a Lyra but certainly connects you with the music in a way only a very few cartridges manage to do & at a price that is far less than you would have to pay for such a communicative cartridge! http://hifipig.com/hana-s-range-moving-coil-cartridges/
  9. Not sure how many of you collect photography books, but for those that do & have an interest in street photography this book should be interesting & is released in the UK in a few days. Arbus Friedlander Winogrand: New Documents, 1967 By Sarah Hermanson Meister. "New Documents" was a photography exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1967 curated by John Szarkowski. Photography exhibitions in those days were virtually unheard of & this one featured ninety-four prints by three relatively unknown photographers, Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander and Garry Winogrand. As you all probably know all three went on to become very well respected photographers in their own right & the exhibition made people look at photography as an art itself & not just a mechanical process, so was ground breaking for photography in the USA. I believe this book is the first to show the ninety-four prints together as they would of been at the exhibition. lots more information here https://streetshooter45.wordpress.com/2012/07/06/looking-back-at-new-documents/ Here's the book https://www.amazon.co.uk/Arbus-Friedlander-Winogrand-Documents-1967/dp/0870709550 I've pre-ordered a copy.
  10. Off to see Grandaddy at Nottingham Rock City tonight. Then... Angel Olson 18/5 Paul Rodgers 20/5 Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 28/9 Insane Clown Posse 18/11
  11. I had a pair of these for a while & really liked them. They're a little more laid back & less exciting than the smaller Royds but as Rick says they do the low stuff too! I think my old pair are still in Nottingham but not 100% sure. http://www.roydaudio.org/models/prior/
  12. Hey Mick, How are you? Lovin some of your photos! Dougie used the name 'Glasweegee' to share his images for a while, I think he still does at times. I'm not sure if you collect photo books, but the Blackpool one 'Stags, Hens & Bunnies' is his strongest book to date for me & well worth a look. Similar to Maciej Dakowicz 'Cardiff After Dark'. His newly released 'Harrodsburg' looks like it could be interesting too, but not seen a finished copy. Getting closer is to a degree is just practice. Try to get a step closer each week/month most people are too busy going about their business to be bothered, but be prepared to apologise & explain what you do photography wise. If you do like the ambush style street stuff there's a collective of flash users that is also worth looking at called 'Full Frontal' http://fullfrontalflash.com/
