A DOG THEMED BIRTHDAY POST FOR YOU!

Roughly this time of year for the past eight years, I’ve asked my partner Ellie what she would like for her birthday, and without hesitation she replies ‘a dog!’ We’re not really in a position to have a dog at the moment, so each and every year I have gone looking for dog themed gifts, socks, scarves, jigsaw puzzles the list goes on and on.

This year however I’ve hit a brick wall so I’ve decided to share a dog themed photography series by Alma Haser instead. Happy Birthday Ellie, fingers crossed this time next year you will have a real life dog, but for now enjoy looking at this ace series!

It’s that time of year when people are preparing to head off on holiday, and for the first time in 8 years I can take part in the conversation ‘where are you going on holiday this year?’ My first trip out of the UK in almost a decade is taking me to New York, and as much as I’m looking forward to it, I can’t help looking back…

Having never been to New York or America for that matter, I have pieced together a romanticised view of the place, by delving head first into the work of the people who documented it in years gone by. I’ve found myself spending every spare minute looking back to the time when Meyerowitz, Friedlander and Maier documented the streets of New York. To say I am excited is a bloody understatement!
