Abandoned Cars

“A fixture now amongst the trees
Fighting a rusting disease
Fauna; thick ,as high as your knees
Rats established wherever they please
Detritus debris fueling irritability
Tyres collapsed, pressure fatigue.”

Guitar Classics

Classic Guitars-2887

‘My guitar is not a thing.It’s an extension of myself. It’s who I am.’

Joan Jet

 

Guitar Classics is best described as a source of eye candy to anyone with a love of guitars. Located in Webbs Road in Clapham, the shop opened in 1997. Graham was originally a maths teacher living in Chelsea but following the sale of his flat in Gunter Road, to his neighbour, John Lydon, he moved south of the river and set up the shop.

Vintage Fender Stratocaster, Gretsch, Rickenbacker and Gibson guitars are all sold here and clients include the Maccabees, Maxi Jazz , Mark Owen, The Lavender Hillbillies and ‘a guy who raced in the Tour de France’!! The most expensive guitar sold to date was a Gibson Les Paul which fetched £9000.

Burial

Wooden Arms_Record Shop-1121

The long awaited new single, ‘Burial‘ by the five piece Wooden Arms, is soon to be released. The band have recorded ‘an album’s worth’ of new material and showcased some of the new songs at an intimate gig at Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston, East London. In between the sound check and going on stage, I photographed the band in the nearby ‘Eldica Records‘ store.

Actor Cokey Falkow

portrait of actor Cokey Falkow, London

Actor Cokey Falkow was recently described by Time Out as ‘Fantastically Intelligent’. He is also multi talented, having a acting career that has seen him work worldwide, filming commercial campaigns and supporting roles in international film. And if that weren’t enough, Cokey has established himself as an edgy stand up act.

Recently I was fortunate to spend the afternoon with Cokey shooting on location in London. Great styling by Jade Alice Galston at ‘Fertha‘.

Discarded Christmas Trees 2016

Discarded Christmas Tree_Michael Clement-0396Final

Nothing symbolises the first week in January better than  the sight of a christmas tree thrown on the pavement awaiting collection from the local council. New years resolutions have been broken, the bank balance is empty, ‘on the wagon’ and there are still 2 months of winter to go!! These worthless spent trees, only weeks ago worth in excess of £50, act as perfect example of consumerism.
