New book – Street Photography – A History in 100 Iconic Images

I’m very pleased to be one of the 100 photographers included in this new book, Street Photography – A History in 100 Iconic Images by David Gibson.

This chronological survey of street photography starts with Edward Steichen back in 1904 and travels through to the present day via Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, William Klein, André Kertész, Vivian Maier, Garry Winogrand, Ernst Haas, Joel Meyerowitz, Elliott Erwitt, Tony Ray-Jones, Josef Koudelka, Helen Levitt, cover star Jeff Mermelstein and, of course, many more. The contents page is shown below.

Vegan and vegetarian Weymouth, UK

In a break from normal programming...

A friend who works as a receptionist at a hotel in Weymouth recently asked me for details of local veggie or vegan places to eat, as he's had an increasing number of visitors ask about meat-free places in the area.

I took a while to put together details for him, and I thought it would be useful to share it here as well.

The HiVe Cafe
All food vegetarian/vegan. Family run.

NB. Not be confused with the well-known Hive Beach Cafe in Burton Bradstock, which is good but not particularly vegetarian. I notice that some reviewers on TripAdvisor have mixed the two up...

I don't currently have any pictures of the venues, so I've picked out a few of my photos from local country shows... Wasp vs bees.
