Things Redirected


What would Leiter do?

Imagine if the internet had been around forty / fifty / sixty years ago, but that cameras had remained analogue: do you think Bailey, Page, Leiter, Penn, Adams, Arbus, Abbot or Moon* would have sat about at their computer screens arguing on forums about the relative merits of Hassleblad, Nikon, Kodachrome blah blah blah? Or do you think they would have been out getting on with producing beautiful, resonant photographs? Exactly. So, c'mon, stop it. The Fuji XPro2 vs. the Nikon D500? Who cares? Both can be made to sing by the right person - get to it. 


*I'm on a one-man mission to raise Sarah Moon's profile - that's her photo, above - how am I doing?

Welcome to Mrs Lemon's: Sic transit gloria mundi.

Something of an online zibaldone, albeit not on Tumblr where one might otherwise expect to find such things, "Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan" takes its name from a poster seen in Cornwall advertising a talk at the local Women's Institute. I hope there is something here you like.

NB If you go back in time far enough on here some of the photos start to disappear - not sure why. Whatever is happening with the missing pictures, apologies.
