Wim Wenders’ Polaroids

“It’s not just the meaning of the image that has changed – the act of looking does not have the same meaning. Now, it’s about showing, sending and maybe remembering. It is no longer essentially about the image…”

The Photographers’ Gallery in London is hosting an extensive exhibition of film maker Wim Wenders’ early Polaroids called Instant StoriesThey date from a prolific period in the 1970s which saw the release of some of his most memorable films.

The quotation above is from an interview with Wenders in The Guardian newspaper. Continue reading “Wim Wenders’ Polaroids”

John Angerson’s English Journey

Photo Histories: Published in 1934, J.B. Priestley’s English Journey became one of the most influential books in the nation’s response to the Great Depression.

Migration

Now that I’m no longer a resident of Weeping Ash, I thought it about time that the old web site was revised, revamped and republished under a new name.

So welcome to The Golden Fleece, same as the old site in content but totally different in look and feel.

Commenced on October 4th, 2017, it’s going to take a while to connect all the old dots and make sense of everything.

Bear with me.
