I wanted to share with you all a great video my friend in London posted on his Facebook last week which had been made as part of the London Street Photography Festival earlier this year.
I stumbled upon this video on an old friend’s Facebook account earlier this week and after watching it, I got a lovely warm feeling inside me.

Opening next month, the show will include never-before-editioned photographs from the private archives of the acclaimed French New Wave photographer, as well as his lesser known landscape images taken during his travels in Asia.
