USA In Colour Pt1: South West Nevada and a Californian Ghost Town

Leaving Vegas I headed south west through Nevada making a couple of stops along the way. Being back in desert after a few years away was a great feeling, and I instantly remembered how much I loved the colours of the desert. Before long I crossed the State line into California, and stopped at a […]

Vegas; By Night

Although the over the top ambiance of Vegas irritated me during the day, by night it gave a great set of colours to offset against the vast desert sky. These images were taken from various hotel windows, some in the middle of the night, and others at dawn.

Vegas: By Day

The first stop on my trip to the USA was Las Vegas. Visually Vegas is a place unlike any other, over sized everything everywhere, with every piece of space saturated with colour and kitsch appearance. This should set the scene for a huge amount of photos then surely? In reality Vegas was one of the […]

Before I Start…

So, it has been a while since I have posted, and as promised there are plenty of colour images of my recent USA trip to come. However before I start uploading them, I decided to upload the images I took of the car I was lucky enough to do the trip in. Having thought I […]

USA ON FILM: PT 8 (THE PEOPLE OF SLAB CITY)

This is the last of the film camera uploads. During the trip, I visited an incredible place, called Slab City. Out in the middle of the desert of California, are a collection of people living by their own rules, and by their own means. I guess you could compare it in part to the hippie […]

USA ON FILM: PT 7 (PORTRAITS)

This is a small collection of some of the people I encountered on part of my journey. The guy by the bus stop and the guy with the bottles were people I stopped and spoke with along a nice authentic part of original Route 66 (not the over-hyped tourist part). The others were just about […]

USA ON FILM: PT6 (DESERT STATIC)

This collection of images is of  vehicles out in the sand, that were not going anywhere, and in most cases, probably hadn’t done so for some time. The sun was beaming on these examples of the once grand carriages that transported people, lifestyles, and livelihoods around the sandy plains and desert towns. The sun is […]

USA ON FILM: PT5 (UNIDENTIFIED STATES OF AMERICA)

This is the third collection of images taken in black and white which are from a variety of places across the California and Nevada desert, which even without name, are distinctly American.

USA ON FILM: PT4 (UNIDENTIFIED STATES OF AMERICA)

This is the second collection of images taken in black and white which are from a variety of places across the California and Nevada desert, which even without name, are distinctly American.

USA ON FILM: PT3 (UNIDENTIFIED STATES OF AMERICA)

This is the first collection of images taken in black and white which are from a variety of places across the California and Nevada desert, which even without name, are distinctly American.

USA ON FILM: PT 2 (CHICAGO)

Here is the second installment of images taken in Chicago, again on black and white 35mm film. I wish I had more time to explore the city, a day and a half really was not enough. That said the things I experienced in the desert more than made up for it, as future posts will […]

USA On Film: Pt 1 (Chicago)

This was the last place I visited on my recent trip Stateside, and it was the only place I shot solely on film. I felt that the urban landscape, home-place of the blues, was best shot in black and white 35mm, instead of colour. it rained for the most-part, which I expected, but this didn’t […]
