Ken Grant. Prints from No Pain Whatsoever

We are pleased to have purchased a complete set of over sixty large format photographs by Ken Grant from his latest book, No Pain Whatsoever. Formally, I love Ken Grants photographs with their tight cropping and intensification of the image, but what really counts for me is their psychological resonance. These are pictures that embody the photographer's respect and his subject's trust.

Homer Sykes. Vintage Prints from "Once a Year"

Claire and James Hyman are pleased to have purchased a selection of very rare vintage prints from Homer Sykes's celebrated 1970s series on British folk customs, Once a Year. James comments: "I've known and loved these pictures for years. For me growing up in the 1970s what is shown is at once familiar and extraordinary. I had the same haircut and clothes as the jeering boys on the street in Minehead, and remember harvest festivals, country pubs, maypoles and Morris dancing."
