Photographer: Jonathan Andrew

These are something I've been meaning to post for a while now, a quick draft made but never published.

I was first attracted to the photography of Jonathan Andrew's photography when stumbling across his WW2 Bunker series on one of my random web wanderings, but soon found that his other work was equally as admirable.

There's something about the way he uses, interprets, or manipulates light in his compositions that draws me in, none so more than the his landscape photography. Here a selection of my favourites.

Ornamental Glass Sign Writing

"Ornamental Glass" isn't a phrase many people would expect me to get excited about, but how can you not when you watch this short documentry about sign writer David Smith by Danny Cooke

Although I'm not going to be the the most prominent promoter of his design style, I do, without question admire the abilities he possesses and the confidence in which he practices his craft.

As with a lot of crafts, David's world is one that's dying out, but should be be kept alive!

Richard Hamilton 1922 - 2011

Just a short post to pay homage to the late Richard Hamilton, who past away today.

I remember studying "Just What Is It that Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing?" and the collage's prominence in the Pop Art movement back in collage.

It was this painting that I associated him with for such a long time until I discovered more of his work; here are a couple of my favourites.

Together let us explore the stars

"Toward a definitive statement on the coming trends in men’s and accessories (a) Together let us explore the stars" - 1962

Study For a Fashion Plate

"Study For a Fashion Plate" - 1969
