Kev and Neale release a little more about their forthcoming July documentary photography course in Amersham. We also talk about making family documentary pictures, photographing naturist and fancy dressed weddings, manual focus lenses; will Fujifilm ever produce a set? Also using the GFX as a documentary camera, the decision to purchase a good monitor for photographic retouching, boxgate is still here, budget friendly cine lenses for the Fuji range, state of the photographic industry, snaps versus photographs and what would make the perfect X-Pro4 and X-H2! Book of the week is ‘Stags, Hags and Bunnies’ by Dougie Wallace and our Friend of the Show guest is Dennis Skyum who talks about deleting 100,000 Instagram followers.

Book of the week is Stags Hens & Bunnies Dougie Wallace

‘Like a proper ‘Weedgie’, Dougie Wallace doesn’ t patronise but sees humanity and pathos in the carnage that is Blackpool.’ – Irvine Welsh ‘Dougie Wallace has captured Blackpool in all its profligate glory.’ – Alan McGee Blackpool has an unenviable reputation for its stag and hen parties. Every weekend marauding packs of brides and grooms, close friends and family, overflow its streets on a mission to consume dangerous, liver-crushing levels of alcohol. This, their rite of passage acted out on the last night of freedom, before the conventions and responsibilities of marital life, mortgage, children. Dougie Wallace has captured a town heaving with everything from bunnygirls to banana men. Girls dressed in togas, all matching gold handbags and neatly-done hair, giving it the when in Rome treatment, devil girls, pink ladies, Brownies, guys in drag, stuffed into nuns and nurses outfits, and wearing salacious T-shirts.

Having previously photographed stags & hens in Blackpool and taxi drivers in Mumbai, in his new project, ‘Harrodsburg’, Dougie Wallace turns his camera to a very different demographic: the mega rich. With his attention now focused on the 1% and their excessive wealth, Dougie took to the streets of Knightsbridge, London – home to the premium shopping destination, Harrods – to capture a vast array of characters displaying their affluence through a plethora of luxury brands and jewellery. The project has been met by a backlash from the Arabic community who have felt victimised, yet Dougie insists he is “not sneering, just shining a light on it. Luxury goods and fast super cars next door to food banks”.
