Neighbours, London Fields.
Real life from the Thames.
A standing brunch date at Leila’s. (Featuring the hand of Natalie.)
Mimosa for the first warm day in London.
David and Chloe met at a friend’s dinner party and kept going outside together because they thought the other smoked. Turns out they were both just pretending so they could get to know each other. They’ve been together eight months. More Valentine’s Day street style for Glamour Magazine.
Joel and Sarah had seen each other every day for two years but had never said hello. They finally met at a club and have been together a year. Valentine’s Day Street Style for Glamour Magazine.
Anastasia and Alina for Glamour.
Abi and Agatha for Glamour Magazine.
I’ve got more street style photos over at Glamour today.
I’m really, really honoured to announce that I’m shooting street style for Glamour Magazine all this month.
This is what it looks like when two of your favourite people marry each other.
A week and a half ago I moved house; out of De Beauvoir Town and into Hackney proper. It’s funny what a difference a mile makes.
Tarik and I took a tour around Battersea Dog and Cats Home. We met a husky called Colleen and a cat called Veronica. We both decided it would be impossible to love a dog called Mario. We drank daiquiris, got caught in the rain.
John was so nervous on his first shift that he didn’t pick up a single passenger. Ben’s been a cabbie for 33 years, Gerry for 51. Femi wants his passengers to trust him. Barry looks at the Bible on his dashboard to help keep him calm in bad traffic. I’m so proud to introduce my [...]
I spent six hours shooting in south London yesterday. It was 26 degrees and the sun burnt the back of my neck and I met 19 interesting people who changed the way I see the world.
There were a few days at the start of April where London looked like this. But it’s rained every day for a month now and it feels so cold and so dull. But you get by. You see art, you eat delicious food, you work and work and work. But mostly, you just countdown to [...]

The perfect Sunday always begins with breakfast at Leila’s Shop.
Opened in 1839 on a wooded hill, Highgate Cemetery is exquisitely overgrown, full of Victorian mausoleums and ivy covered gravestones. I took these photos on a guided tour of the west cemetery last Saturday. On the first real day of spring with the snow drops blooming and the sun dancing through the trees.
This is my garden in the snow a few weeks ago. It’s hard to believe this happened. London is almost warm now.
Mishkin’s is a kind-of Jewish deli in Covent Garden. I met an old friend and her boyfriend there for lunch in January. I’d not seen her in about six years and we drank wine and talked about old times. Three weeks after we had lunch, he asked her to marry him underwater while they were [...]
I spent my Valentine’s Day at The Troxy watching The Other Cinema‘s presentation of Brief Encounter. There was singing and dancing and popcorn, people in beautiful costumes, ushers and usherettes, and a little too much prosecco. [photos by The Other Cinema]
This empty bottle of Chanel Platinum Égoïste sat on a wall two doors down from my house for four days. Every time I walked past it, it had been moved a few inches in either direction as though picked up and smelt by passing strangers. Chanel says this is a fragrance for the passionate, romantic man.

Ottolenghi and Albam are now neighbours on Upper Street.
Playing with disposable cameras: Meat Liquor, Bodean’s, St Paul’s, Bardens Boudoir.
London feels so dull right now. I want it to be spring. I want to have enough money to not work and to really do things. [polaroids by Tim Frank Schmitt via the thinking tank]
