Almost hidden from view when you’re walking down Oxford Street is a great place for an escape from the overcrowded streets of London’s busy West End.
I love the chaos and the overcrowded streets around Oxford Circus but sometimes it’s all getting a bit too much: too many people, buses, cars, traffic, noise. But don’t worry, a remedy is not far away! Make your way through one of the walkways into the courtyard of St Christopher’s Place and voilà, a relaxing atmosphere awaits you with lovely cafés, restaurants, and some great bars perfect for a little after work drink. There’s often some live music as well. And if you haven’t had enough shopping, browse through all the little shops and boutiques. I recommend Mrs Kibble’s Olde Sweet Shoppe with jars full of yummy goodies and sweets, Petit Chou with natural, colourful wooden toys and the Amber Centre where you can find beautiful amber jewellery. But there’s plenty more to discover!
Entrance at the alleyway is just opposite Bond Street Station. St. Christopher’s Place

Joining our roster of judges for the TEN AND ONE AWARDS is Jimmy Cheng. He is based in London as a wedding and street portrait photographer. Aside from photography, he likes anything outdoor-related: traveling, basketball, and speaking to strangers.
Photographers capture uniqueness. Fashion photographers strive for new faces. Conflict photographers are present, when history is made. And some folks, like me, go to hidden places with an own narrative. Like the car cemetery of Båstnäs, deep within the forrest maze, where Sweden touches Norway

It’s that time of the year when you can almost hear the holiday knocking on your door. Although, holidays are usually meant for taking a break from your 9 to 5 type of a job, there is no reason why you shouldn’t allow yourself a healthy amount of laziness and still do some fun, creative things...
Photographer CJ Clarke had no idea what would conspire years later when he began a simple street-documentary series recording the daily lives of people from Basildon. In ten years, he would find out for himself the growing discontent of the national government, right before Brexit took place.

For newcomer Aurélie Raidron, shooting on film is a welcome break from the almost perfect image-rendering of digital devices. She makes the most out of the blurs, grains, and "happy accidents" inherent to analogue photography and incorporates them to create hauntingly beautiful photographs.
This colored island sitting within the Venetian Lagoon is an understated travel destination with astonishing distinction, setting itself apart from famous cities and travel spots around the world. The street portraits of Mirko Saviane now brings Burano to center stage for everyone to adore.
Today, we gain altitude with Ben Nardini, director of photography and pilot of drone for Almo film production. Passionate about image, whether static or moving, Ben meets the LC-Wide in the LGS in New York.

A long-time fan of plastic cameras, Argentinean writer and photographer Lorraine Healy is the author of “Tricks With A Plastic Wonder,” a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera. In this article, Healy tries to piece back together a 2002 trip to New Mexico, from before the time she learned to keep good notes when she traveled.
Lorraine Healy is a self-confessed "Holga and Sprocket Rocket nut." We recently discovered her fantastic Lomo'Instant Wide images on her Lomohome and decided to find out more about the stories behind these shots and the person behind the camera.
