Things always have a way of coming back to us & Serious gamer Abi: No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This does look remarkably similar to a shot I posted earlier in the week which was something of an accident, but one that proved popular and something I wanted to revisit for this project. Incidentally, it is really difficult to recreate a shot you essentially took by accident. This is partly due to the fact that you have little idea…

Balloon comedian & It’s all about the cake, or how Sebastian found Abi Seb: I should probably preface this by saying he is a member of my family. I don’t actually go around taking photos of little boys, asking them to tie balloons to their ears — that was all his idea.

I didn’t have enough sleep or coffee for the barrage of intimate and deeply-probing questions that septuagenarian Jewish females pitched at me over a four-hour period. Not only is it the number of questions but the ferocity and varied intensity at which they are delivered. Think of them like baseball pitches: high, low; fast, slow; straight and curved — you need to be able to…
