"It is worth considering how Wood’s work resembles the early work of Paul Graham, Chris Killip and Martin Parr, all included in MoMa’s 1991 exhibition and publication British Photography from the Thatcher Years (Wood is mentioned in that book by curator Susan Kismaric as a younger photographer to look out for in the years to come)."
Tom Wood – Men Women (Steidl 2013) By Peter Baker, for ASX, July 2014 It is only recently that I discovered the work of Irish born photographer Tom Wood, who, for the better part of four decades has been photographing people in Liverpool and the surrounding county of Merseyside in the UK. These pair of …

Bob Mazzer - Underground

Just spent 36 hours travelling back to the UK and the first thing I did upon arrival was open up my copy of Bob Mazzer's 'Underground'. In fact I'd been so desperate to get a copy in my haste I forgot I'd already pre-ordered it and ended up with two copies!

Anyway, of all the photobooks I own this is the one that talks to me more than any other. I love Gilden, Merlmestein and the rest but they took photos in a far off place in a time I never really knew. With his new book, however, Mazzer offers glimpses into a recent past I know very well. I suspect that this book would appeal to anyone who travelled by tube from the 70s onwards.

I remember those dated phone booths with the hanging directories. I remember smoking on the tubes. I even remember that Superman advert, though at the age of ten I'd have not understood the LSD reference. Perhaps I have a romantic view of travelling on the tube as a kid but I think Mazzer captures some of those ethereal memories I still have of the London Underground perfectly. From straight-up portraits to beautiful 'decisive moments', this is a cracking tome.

I'm particularly intrigued by the photo of another photographer wearing a huge Canon rifle, rolls of film around his waist, a Leica book in hand and a straw hat on his head. I wonder if Mazzer will ever able to find out who that bloke was. It's certainly not difficult to leaf through the pages and expect someone you recognise to jump out at you. In a way, most of the people are recognisable, either through their clothes, their poses or their recognisable environment.

I definitely recommend this book, not just to photographers but to anyone who commuted around London by tube.

There's an exhibition to accompany his book at the Howard Griffin gallery. Link here: http://howardgriffingallery.com/artists/bob-mazzer

Hi +Keith Masey. Thanks for the comment. I've never used a GoPro but I have heard lots of good thigns about them. If you come to Malaysia to do your Yachtmaster you should give me a shout. Maybe you'll have bought a GoPro by then and I can have a play with it!

Hi Jamie,

Are you still on Langkawi? I just completedy comp crew course, and it was a blast. Our instructor (Simon) was great. After the weekend I'll be doing my shore based day skipper. If you're around and have the time you can call me on 016 438 9335 (malay sim). When not on board I'm staying at Pentai Chenang on Langkawi. Hopefully I'll have my coastal skipper soon.

I'm happy that we.got into some squalls on the penultimate day of comp crew. I guess many people don't get to experence force 7 on that course? ;)

It was great!

Looking through the recent submissions to this community I think a lot of people could do with an education into what 'STREET PHOTOGRAPHY' means. Is no one moderating this group?

Great place for a comfortable beer, pizza or game of pool. They also do car and scooter hire though I did think the car for a day at 1500 baht was quite expensive for south Thailand. I've also stayed at On's in the huge room facing the street - I had the whole floor to myself. A comfortable sleep and a large menu of both Thai and western food. Tip: ask for the broccoli salad that isn't on the menu and of the pizzas go for the carbonara. One thing: remember there is On's Kitchen and On's Lounge. Head for the Lounge if you're looking for a western-style cosy pub atmosphere. The two buildings are 50m apart but share the same menu, staff and kitchen.
