A Selection of My Writing


In 2010/2011, I ran a film-photography blog called The Photon FantasticI wrote the following series of articles as part of a larger, collaborative project called The Beginner's Guide to Film Photography, which I developed with Rachel Rebibo, a Paris-based fashion photographer. Rachel curates the wildly successful blog I Still Shoot FilmHer contributions to the guide may be found there.

I've also written less technical, more philosophical, and much more opinionated articles about photography. They say I'm polarizing. Oh well.

I'm fascinated by the multitude of ways that photographers think and speak about their art. To my mind, photography is a very slippery thing and it takes a lot of thinking to penetrate the surface of what it is. Here's a (growing) collection of thoughts on photography by great practitioners and critics.

On Rationalism

On The Sharing Economy

On Technology & Design
