This photograph was part of my LRPS set, and one of my fave shots from Port Sudan. His slight snarl gets me every time, despite the fact he was a very nice chap. We ended up playing ‘light-sabres’ with his meat cleavers.
Some great news about Jamie’s first photography exhibition. Four of his pieces are part of a group exhibition juxstaposing his African and Indian street photography with architecture and urban themes, showing at Urban Picnic in Saffron Walden, UK, which runs from now until December 8th. If you’re on the High Street in Walden please do pop in and offer your support. We left before it opened so we missed it, but we’d love to hear from you if you get a chance to view it. If you can’t see that, then you can get a regularly updated stream of his photographs via his new Photography Blog. Click the link for more details…
