Johan Willner - Boy Stories

Johan Willner - Boy Stories #johanwillner #boystories #photobook #photography #photobookreview

I havent reviewed a book for a while, but this doesnt mean that I havent had a few turn up on my doorstep. I love great books, and there are some great ones that I have that I still need to spend some time writing about. This is a process that makes me sit and take in the book. Its just like writing a book review in high school, except now I appreciate the value of the exercise.

As I said, there…

Boogie - Its All Good

Boogie - Its All Good #photobookreview #photography #photobook

It’s all good by Boogie has to be one of the greatest photo books published if you are into documentary style street photography. I didn’t know a lot about Boogie until I watched Everybody Street. But once I knew just a little I was hooked. I have said way too many times things like it’s my favourite book, or their my favourite artist. I won’t say it again here, but in all seriousness, if you are…

As a general rule I don’t like to enter into the debate about what is and isn’t street photography. It’s a murky deep dark black hole of an argument that just isn’t…

Tokyo (東京) and me #tokyo #japan #photography #learning

So Tokyo… I have a lot of films that I am processing at the moment. I have a lot of printing to do as well. As I dont have images, but I want to get some thoughts out on the trip now, I thought I would use some images from some of my favourite Japanese photographers in this post.

Creativity and the pursuit of happiness

Creativity and the pursuit of happiness #inspiration #streetphotography #creativity #learning

Creativity is an interesting topic, and its one that I think deserves some thought from those of us that think we belong to the small group of people on this planet that would consider themselves to be creative souls.

This post has been something that has been brewing for a while I think, This is the case with a lot of the random rambles that I tend to pen. The ones that are more from me and for…

Jesse Marlow is a Melbourne based street photographer who is a member of In-Public. I recently had the chance to do his workshop that I highly recommend to anyone based in Melbourne.
