When I met Ms Stah – trapeze artist and cabaret performer – in Old Street, London, she was on the way to get her passport photo taken. Stah was wearing a hat bought from “an old lady in Berlin”, the coat is from Fornarina (Carnaby Street), the top is from TopShop and the scarf from […]

Anna is a travel editor and was passing through the commercial district of London when I spotted her. The hat was bought on travels through Kazikstan, but apparently was made in Uzbekistan, the scarf she bought in Singapore for a friends wedding, but was made in India and the coat and “Rupert Bear trousers” are […]

Divine Inspiration

Dav was in a mad rush, when I spotted her in Covent Garden. She is wearing a Marc Jacobs coat, a vintage skirt bought in Paris, with a purple hoody. I was attracted to the unusual colour combination of purple, yellow and navy blue jacket with a hint of red on this hazy winters afternoon. […]

Eric is from Paris, he is wearing a black Paul Smith double-vented collection suit with skinny leg trousers. He says he is into music of all kinds, and his friends say he looks like Nick Cave – but he is quick to point out he’s not a fan. I photographed Eric in Covent Garden and liked his […]

Retro Urban Chic

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

I met Martha in London’s Covent Garden. She told me she’d like to be a model and is currently at University. She was wearing a baseball jacket, teeshirt and earings from TopShop, accessorised with a Marc B retro tote bag and a pair of cut-off jeans – which she made herself. I liked Martha’s retro […]

I spotted model Anya with her makeup still on from a photo shoot, heading towards Liverpool Street Station and I was immediately inspired to take her photo in the half light of a winters afternoon, in the city of London. Originally from Poland she now lives in London. Anya was wearing a jacket from Roxy, […]

Koko is relaunching a magazine called ‘Notes From The Underground’. She was wearing a rabbit fur aviator hat, red Brora cashmere hoody, leather jacket with sheepskin sleeves (a present from India) and blue velvet shirt when I met her in East London. I liked her assertive style, the layers and way the sweater cascades around […]

La Fille de Chelsea

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Caroline is from France. I photographed her whilst she was waiting for a bus in Chelsea. She was wearing satin trousers by Zara, a coat from TopShop and “some English tourist teeshirt”. A grey cardigan and a black lacy scarf added very nice finishing touches.

Man About Town

Man About Town

Monday, January 26th, 2009

I met Peter on his way to change some shoes – which were a little too tight – at Louis Vuitton on Sloane Street, London. He was wearing a Chanel tie, Prada suit and a Burberry “very old-time, never-fails-me” coat. Gloves by Jaeger. Peter works in financial management in Stockholm, Sweden. I particularly loved Peters […]

High Street Angel

High Street Angel

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Everything Hayley was wearing was from Primark, when I spotted her in South West London. She struck me as a true High Street angel, not too bothered by labels. It was such a simple, uncomplicated look – the faux leather jacket, teeshirt and tartan pants.

Socks Appeal

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Red trainers and Argyle socks with a faux leopard skin fur rushing pass me on the Kings Road. There was a certain eye-catching quality about this woman’s individual look which impelled me to take this snap.

A Splash Of Colour

A Splash Of Colour

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

A rainy afternoon in London, West 8 was suddenly brightened by this woman’s vibrant combination of flame red coat and lime green umbrella and scarf.  The black bag and darkened doorway (where she sheltered whilst on her phone) set against the light, wintery background, further increased the impact of this scene for me.

South Ken Party Frock

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

Felicity had just come from the V&A Museum in South Kensington. She is wearing a “purple fluffy jumper” with a sexy white mesh tutu skirt and black patterned fishnet tights. I like this picture because the model, the pose and the setting have a sort of 1970′s Punk aesthetic.

Jermyn Street Gent

Jermyn Street Gent

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Alexander had been shopping in Jermyn Street, before going back to college in America. I was struck by his simple yet old-fashioned, slightly ruffled old money look. The pocket square, the cardigan and gloves are so quintessentially ‘English Gent’.

City Slicker

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

Leanne works in recruitment and was on the way to a very important meeting in the City when I spotted her through the lunchtime crowd. I particularly loved the structure of her black coat by Zara against the blonde stone background. Her handbag is by Karen Millen, shoes and skirt from TopShop, and tights by […]

Jessica is a bespoke jewellery designer – she is wearing one of her pieces around her neck, a half eaten apple. I met her coming from the Gherkin building in Corporate area in the City, where she had been taking part in ‘Jewellery Week’. She is inspired by 1930′s style. Her jacket is hand-tailored, the […]

Dark Out Of Light

Dark Out Of Light

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Thomas is in a band imaginatively named Scum! He says the music is dark and experimental. He is wearing “70′s dancer shoes”, a Spanish hat with pinstripe trousers and 1950′s trench coat. I thought he had a clean, graceful look, which contrasted well with the grungy background of this East London street on a gloomy […]

Off To See The Wizard…

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Lucy works for Agent Provocateur. She really enjoys mixing colours together and is wearing a Zara mac with a Vivian Westwood bag and belt. She loves her stripey tights, which are by Jonathan Aston and reminded her of the witch from the Wizard of Oz.

The Passion Of Graham

The Passion Of Graham

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Graham is a painter from California. He is wearing a tailor-made mustard duffle coat which he recently bought in Devon, South West England and a navy-blue knitted hat. I met him in Shoreditch, London; he was on a pilgrimage to meet friends to witness the inauguration of President Obama.
