  3. Interview: Jan Tove

    Interview: Jan Tove
      Swedish photographer Jan Tove very kindly agreed to answer some questions to coincide with the publication of Night Light, images of dormant small towns and communities during bright nights and dark days. Jan answered in excellent English, of course - thanks! How did the idea for Night Light evolve? Everything started on a warm, bright summer night. I didn't...

    Business as Usual(ish!)
    The landscape for businesses of all shapes and sizes has changed radically over the last few weeks. Beyond Words is one of many small businesses having to adapt.

  6. Gunnar Smoliansky 1933-2020

    Gunnar Smoliansky 1933-2020
    It was sad to hear of the recent death of Gunnar Smoliansky, surely one of the greatest ever Swedish photographers. Taught initially by Christer Stromholm, Smoliansky travelled much less than other Swedish photographers such as Anders Petersen and perhaps didn't receive the same international recognition. Smoliansky was more than happy to spend most of his time in Stockholm and that...

    Signed copies of Ramirez-Suassi's Fordlandia are here now
    In 2018 J M Ramirez-Suassi’s self-published One-Eyed Ulysses came out of nowhere but soon attracted the attention of photobook lovers and sold out within a few months. His new book will, I suspect, confirm that earlier indication of his talent and vision. This time his subject matter is Fordlandia, Henry Ford's attempt to colonise the Amazon jungle for profit and...
