The amazing, overwhelming Marrakech Marrakech was somewhere I've always wanted to see, and was lucky enough to get to visit for a few days this month. I suppose like many, I had a vague, romanticised idea of what it may be like. It turned out to exceed those ideas on every level. Exciting, intimidating, mysterious,


The ten greatest looking films ever made, part 3

Part three in an occasional series on film visual style in the movies I love. As far as 'ten greatest ever' – well, the ones that were on my mind when I was putting this together. The link throughout is an appreciation of production design, cinematography, or any other defining visual characteristic – it’s purely

Tony Viramontes – Bold, Beautiful and Damned

1980s fashion illustrator Tony Viramontes Bold, beautiful and Damned, is a stunning book by Dean Rhys Morgan – a retrospective of the career of iconic fashion illustrator Tony Viramontes.

Remembering The Face magazine 1980-2004

The beach huts in Mudeford are located on the Hengistbury Head peninsular, a hook shaped land-mass that encircles Christchurch harbour. The huts themselves are back-to-back on the tip of the peninsular as it almost-but-not-quite

The ten greatest looking films ever made, Part 2

More of an outdoor flavour to this post, in contrast to Part 1 which featured a lot of artificially lit interiors. There’s no particular theme, although with a Road movie and two Westerns, there are three examples of non-US directors tackling some classic American movie staples, plus three mythic characters who have had multiple films

The environments of 2001: A Space Odyssey

Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. There are so many incredible images associated with this film it’s difficult to know where to start or stop, but the ones that generally stick in my mind are those that highlight the amazing set design, and the lovely update of the 60′s air travel experience to space. One
