Les Carnets De La Mer




This is a book by Farid Abdelouahab that I picked up a while ago whilst living in Belgium. Translated this means " Books of the Sea ". This book contains many sketch books, post cards and memoirs of  fisherman from the likes of Victor Hugo and Bernard Moitessier. The colors and illustrations are really rich and the styles vary enormously, from really loose styles to tight botanical type sketches.

Todd Hido




Discovered the photographer Todd Hido recently. The moods are amazing, the watery windscreens a great filter. Reminds me of a photographic Turner.
